By demanding to add to this bill, you take away the ability of off-duty POLICE OFFICERS to carry concealed weapons in these zones. Just a thought for all you people crying for guns in the schools, which I disagree with except for police officers.

i dont leave my safety up to police. it my duty to defend myself and my neighborhood. how can i do that if im unarmed. gun free zones are a pick off point for evil doers. if the teachers are armed then we wont need off duty officers. i dont leave my safety in the hands of officials. last time that happened a couple million ppl died in concentration camps. i will never trust a government that does everything in its power to control its population.

Not true Don Vine, by taking away the current law, we allow ALL citizens the ability to once again use their Second Amendment in all public, non-government, buildings. This is what will solve the abuses of "gun free zones" and stop empowering criminals as I have described above. Allow the people to arm and protect themselves and then you do not need other individuals to provide "safety," because there is no better safety than sane individuals who are law abiding citizens who only wish to protect life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Does anyone else see the correlation between the gun law bans and the increase in shootings? Just like the exotic animal bans and the MURDER (NOT SUICIDE) of Terry Thompson in Zanesville, Ohio just a few days before the vote? Coincidence? I seriously doubt it.

Does the government Danny? Does the presidents family deserve to have better protection then my own? If he does then that makes him and his army a dictatorship, which is far from a Republic. We are much closer to socialism with the ideals of 9,000 gun deaths being used to take away 300,000,000 gun owners rights to bear arms. More than 15,000 people died in 2011 due to prescription drug overdoses and 11,500 people died in drunk driving accidents. According to this study from Columbia, Obama...

I have to dis agree. Our county would be a safer place with out these type of weapons in the public's hands. I think if you were one of the Newtown parents you would feel differently.I am all for having hunting guns if that's your thing but a gun that shoots as fast as you keep pulling the trigger is for wars.This mentally ill person killed 26 people in a about two minutes.

Danny Madry also if you think a revolution only can happen once in America, fighting against tyranny, then I do not know what to tell you. The question is not if, but more of a question of when? In order to be protected from tyranny, individuals must bear arms like that of the army in which tyranny will use to try to defeat the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. If we give up our rights, eventually we will have none. If you choose not to have an automatic weapon, then that is your right...

Danny where have you been getting your informtion? Danny when I was in Lawenforcement it was very clear to me and my fellow Officers that it is very easy to get black market weapons that have come across the Mexican U.S. border. ad guys do not buy firearms through legal channels because they are traceable. They either steal them or buy them from the smugglers on the Monterry Express.

James, it is your choice to not own a gun just like it is my right to own whatever gun I so choose. The Second Amendment clearly states, "the right to keep and bear arms, shall NOT be infringed." I do not know how else to explain this to you. Since I believe you remember, what about the Japanese Americans in the 1940's? Since everyone who registers a gun in America checks what race they are, it was easy for the government to take away their guns and them place them into camps because of the...
