I oppose The CAMPUS Safety Act because...this is stupid - just allow concealed weapons to be carried by students and teachers. No Problem then.

I oppose H.R. 359: CAMPUS Safety Act of 2013 because...more foolishness. To improve campus safety stop making people be unarmed. See how easy common sense works?

I oppose H.R. 359: CAMPUS Safety Act of 2013 because we do not need yet another government agency involved even deeper in another area of our lives. This money could be better spent elsewhere. Involving DHS even further within our children's lives particularly through the last words of the bill stating that nothing precludes elementary or secondary education from this concerns me as well. Cut these unobligated funds to ease their part of the sequester instead of finding new ways to spend the money.

I oppose H.R. 359: To establish and operate a National Center for Campus Public Safety because this is a clear and obvious end run around the constitution. If the government wants this much control, we may as well just go for a socialist state, like Sweden did...and found out that it DOES NOT WORK. They struggled through a socialist experiment and switched back to capitilism. Wow, it worked; they are one of the strongest, most financially solid countries in the world. This is no better an answer than gun free zones! Cameras do nothing to *stop* crime, they are useful only for the prosecution if they get a clear picture of a perpetrator and that can be avoided by the perpertrator simply putting on a hoodie, a ball cap, a pair of sunglasses or even a wig. The police will not be able to respond any faster, so it is still a matter of pure luck rather than common sense. Gun free zones are victim zones, pure and simple. Cameras will not stop that. No to HR 359!

I oppose H.R. 359: To establish and operate a National Center for Campus Public Safety because I do not trust this Attorney General as far as I could throw him. The underlying reason I do not support this is the US AG should not be involved in each states business of montoring the schools within their borders. This is not an area the Federal Government should be having jurisdiction over and it smacks of socialism plus another attempt at an end run around the Constitution.
