Guns and Schools

A day after a House committee voted to crack down on illegal guns, a second committee has proposed easing restrictions on legal ones.

The House Public Policy Committee voted on party lines to relax the ban on having a gun on school property by allowing you to have the weapon locked in your trunk.

Seymour Republican Jim Lucas says the restriction goes against common sense.
He says a law-abiding citizen who has to dash into a school for a minute shouldn‘t be at risk of a felony charge.

Lucas says prosecutions involving the law appear to be rare, but says if the law‘s not going to be enforced, it shouldn‘t be on the books.

Gun-control advocates argue allowing guns at school in any form goes against the law‘s goal.
