Stop the legislature from allowing concealed firearms to be carried in our schools!
Senate File 0075 and House Bill 0183, both titled, “Repeal gun free zones and preemption amendments,” will be heard at the legislature. These bills repeal concealed carry restrictions, and specifically call for concealed carry of firearms to be allowed in elementary and secondary schools, on university and college campuses, and at sporting events. The bills also include concealed carry at legislative committee meetings. These bills increase the potential for an active shooter incident in our schools, puts students and school personnel at high risk, and destroys the assurance that schools are a safe place to learn.
Providing a safe and secure learning environment for all students is a priority for educators and parents. WEA supports school resource officers (SROs) who are adequately trained in the use of firearms. Bills which allow the secret, undetectable presence of firearms in our schools are not in the best interest of the safety and security of our most precious citizens.
Your representatives need to hear from you!
