H.R. 133 would “repeal the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and amendments to that Act.” The Federal Gun Free School Zones Act (GFSZA) (codified at 18 U.S.C. § 922(q)) prohibits possession of a firearm within 1,000 feet from the legal boundaries of a school with certain exceptions.

Gun free school zones are a failure and an overreach of the Federal Government's authority. They do nothing to stop criminals, and are hardly beneficial in prosecuting crimes.

We support the passage of HR 133, which would repeal the Gun-Free Zone Act of 1990 and Amendments to the act. Criminals intent on violent destruction target gun-free zones. Current law deprives citizens on their natural right to defend themselves (and in some states, others). Isaeli schools were targets for terrorists until the IDF armed faculty an parents took up arms. The tragedy at Newtown, CT showed school security is the issue, not infringing the natural rights of law-abiding citizens. Pass HR 133 into law.

Criminals already disobey "Gun Free School Zones" now. Removing this restriction would allow citizens who are permitted to carry firearms in locations surrounding the school the ability to carry a firearm ...
