Wyoming House passes bill that does away with gun-free zones in schools – TheBlaze

On Wednesday, the Wyoming House of Representatives passed House Bill 194 in a landslide vote of 46-14.

The nature of the bill, known as “The School Safety and Security Act,” is such that it would allow school districts decide whether or not they would allow their employees to carry on school grounds, provided they have a concealed carry permit.

About damn time. Nut jobs typically search out soft targets.

I believe and have stated that all school employees should possess CC permits. Just know that somebody might be armed in a school would be a strong deterrent.

Good idea. Sandy Hook would have been stopped in its tracks if the principals office had contained a gun safe with a couple defender 12's locked inside.

Knee jerk reactions don't resolve issues.

It's not a matter of if they are all armed. It's the idea that the 'gun free zone' label has been removed, so those thinking to harm those in the school won't know IF someone is armed. Could be no one. Could be one or two people.

But it will make them stop and think twice, AND THAT IS THE WHOLE POINT.

It's too difficult a concept for some to grasp. But it's the same concept that is used on commercial flights. I've heard no complaints about the air marshalls.

This bill is only common sense. The terror attacks in this country have taken place in gun-free zones. Do away with them, and it might only take one armed citizen to stop a terrorist attack.

Tell me something Mikeyy, do you think that every person who has a CCW just whips a gun out and shoots someone for fun?

Have you ever walked through a public place, and seen a civilian open carrying? Chances are, you haven't.

Because MOST people who carry legally, aren't looking to "strut', they are carrying for defense. No one other than immediate friends or family usually know who has a gun or a CCW.

Surprise, I've had a CCW for 25 years, and I've never had a need to remove it from the holster other than target practice. Imagine that.

I'd rather have it, and not need it, then need it, and not have it.
