Sign the Petition to

The House of Representatives

My fellow Americans, it is time that we come to the realization of failed policies. In remembrance of the lives lost in this most recent tragedy we must band together to defend the right to bear arms more than ever. Understand that this occurred in an area which already has strict gun laws and also took place in a "gun free zone." Now there is no way to predict how many lives could have been saved or if this could have been avoided altogether, but we will never know unless we take a step in the right direction of freedom and individual liberties. Any citizen with the ability and right to carry a gun on that campus may very well have been a hero, among those many teachers who are already heroes in many ways. Let's empower the educators, not the criminals, because only criminals do not obey the laws and with this in mind there is no law that can change this fact. Liberty is what makes people safer, the ability to decide if you are a hero or a villain, not a law, because once a law is broken and there is no ability to stop a threat immediately then those involved are at the mercy of a response time. This is not safety and this is not liberty. So please spread the message of liberty and share this petition with your friends, family, and associates. Let's demand that our representatives give us, law abiding citizens, the freedom to protect our life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness and not to empower criminals with "gun free zones."

"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed one."

~Thomas Jefferson
