Texas Congressman Steve Stockman Says Gun-Free School Zones Are a "Deadly Experiment" That Must End


He's at it again. CQ Roll Call reports that Stockman introduced a bill on day one calling for the repeal of the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990, which prohibits citizens from carrying a weapon near schools.

"Not only have so-called 'gun-free school zones' proven to be anything but that, they appear to have placed our children in even greater danger," Stockman wrote to colleagues in a letter circulated Wednesday. "Co-sponsoring the Safe School Act is the first step toward protecting our children."

He added later, "The time has come to end the deadly experiment of disarming peaceable, law-abiding citizens near schools."
