Gun Free School Zone Act Passage

Folks, Not sure how many of you understand just how badly you can be screwed by the Gun Free School Zone Act 0f 1995 but you all should be aware of it particularly if you have an out of state permit or are a resident of a free state.

Just as important is to be aware of HOW we got screwed and WHO screwed us so here's a brief synopsis of how the bill got passed and links at the bottom to the final votes in the House and Senate.

That bill was sponsored by Sen. Herb Kohl (D-Wis.). The bill ultimately got included in an appropriations bill and was passed as part of H.R. 3610: Omnibus Consolidated Appropriations Act, 1997 which a steamy pile of turd big gov RINO's (and Dems) voted for including Sen Judd Gregg, Lieberman, McCain, Lugar, Grassley, McConnell, Snowe, Mikulski, Lott, Reid, Domenici. Inhofe, Santorum and other familiar names.

How any of these people have good ratings from the NRA is beyond comprehension.....unless the NRA didn't oppose the bill

Aren't Reid and Mikulski Democrats rather than RINO?

I'm going to give this a stick for the time being because it's a topic that affects gun owners regardless of where they live or travel.

Can I request that the thread be treated as a reference instead of a three ring circus and that posts that have little or nothing to do with GFSZA be deleted with extreme predjudice?

But, but, but ...

"It's for the children" ... I hear ya "Mr. and Mrs. Progressive", but let's see how effective it's been.

School shootings 1995 to 2005

School Shootings

The School Shootings Report

Quote:
School shootings are not a simple issue with a single solution. This violence is rooted in psychological imbalances within the students themselves, poor parenting and a decay in significance of traditional institutions along with the guilt forces they rely on for effectiveness - to name a just a few.

I guess assault and robbery is ok every now and then but a shooting isn’t, or perhaps it’s just because the news media has picked up on it in a thinly veiled effort to extenuate a gun control agenda? The last one seems the most likely because gang violence using guns, knives and clubs is so common in urban areas that it doesn’t even illicit news coverage, but it is certainly no less deadly.
The MONEY quote ...

Discipline Definitions: This statute makes it a federal crime to possess a gun within 1000 feet of
any school—public, private, or parochial. Punishment for violations of this criminal law may be
up to five years imprisonment and up to $5000 fine. (18 U.S.C. Sec. 924 (a)(4)).
Quote:
The Gun Free School Zone Act of 1995, as an amendment to Title 18 of the U.S. Code. The amendment ensures that the
prohibitions against guns in school zones have the requisite nexus with interstate or foreign
commerce. Language in this legislation, similar to the original act of 1990, states “It shall be
unlawful for any individual knowingly to possess a firearm…at a place that the individual
knows, or has reasonable cause to believe, is a school zone.” The legislation further states “…it
shall be unlawful for any person…to discharge or attempt to discharge a firearm…at a place that
the person knows is a school zone.”
So, is this saying that if I am legally CCWing and I am pulled over for some reason and it happens to be on a road that travels through a school zone, and the stop is within that zone, I can be charged with a felony under this act, even though I had no intent to enter the school grounds?

A thousand feet parameter around every school would make it damn near impossible to CCW legally while on the road.

This is just wrong. Any gun free zone is free game for criminals.

I purchased a gun last sunday and waiting for it. But here is my question, I live more or less 1000 feet from a school. Am I not allowed to have it at home and carry to shooting range? if so I am screwed for $250 bucks that I did put as advance.
