Colorado State Government

Republican Colorado State Representative Patrick Neville, who survived the Columbine gun attack in 1999, is introducing legislation to allow teachers to carry guns in order to thwart school shootings.  He identifies “gun-free zones” as the common denominator in mass shootings.  He has introduced this legislation every year since 2014, and is hoping that this time it will pass.

Columbine attack survivor and Colorado House Minority Leader Patrick Neville (R-45) is a strong proponent of arming teachers for self-defense.

Neville was first elected to office in 2014 and has introduced his bill each year since that time without success. He hopes this year will be different because of the increased attention paid to the defenseless posture of unarmed teachers and staff.

The Washington Times reports Neville’s contention that more Columbine students would have survived the April 20, 1999, Columbine attack if faculty and/or staff had been armed to take out the attackers. And he believes arming teachers now will protect future students from evil men who are planning attacks.

He described his legislation: “This act would allow every law-abiding citizens who holds a concealed carry permit, issued from their chief law-enforcement officer, the right to carry concealed in order to defend themselves and most importantly our children from the worst-case scenarios.”
