A survivor of the Columbine school massacre and Colorado State lawmaker is introducing legislation that will allow conceal and carry on school campuses.
In response to the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, there have been many who are calling for stricter gun laws, but some are going in the opposite direction.
In Colorado, state House Minority Leader Patrick Neville (R), who survived the 1999 Columbine High School mass shooting, is getting ready to introduce legislation that will allow concealed carry permit holders to enter school buildings with firearms, according to the Washington Times.
Under current state law, firearms are able to be on the premise but must be stowed in vehicles.
Neville has been championing this expansion of concealed carry before the shooting that occurred on Valentine’s Day.
“As an Army veteran and Columbine survivor, I’m leading the fight in the Colorado State House to restore AND expand our gun rights,” Neville posted on his Facebook page.
