New Bill Could Completely Remove Guns From Schools
Assemblymember Kevin McCarty, D- Sacramento, has introduced Assembly Bill 424, intended to close a loophole in California’s Gun Free School Zones law.
As of now school campuses are technically gun-free zones, but with some exceptions. With permission from the school district, certain authorized gun owners with a concealed carry weapon permit may enter school campuses.
Assemblymember McCarty has cited a high number of school shootings that take place in the country—about one a week.
“A safe learning environment is essential for our children to be successful in the classroom,” said Assemblymember McCarty. “That’s not possible if a school district allows armed civilians to roam California school campuses.”
