Colorado State Rep. Patrick Neville, a survivor of the Columbine High School shooting, introduced a House Bill that would allow guns in Colorado schools.

Colorado statute already allows that those with legal concealed handgun permits may carry on public University campuses but does not allow that school teachers or other faculty at elementary, middle, junior, or high schools may carry or have a firearm with them in the schools.

Neville was a student at Columbine High School on April 20th, 1999 when 13 students were killed.

“The only thing that is going to stop murderers intent on doing harm is to give good people the legal authority to carry a gun to protect themselves and our children,” Neville said. “More of my friends would still be alive today.”

Neville introduced the same bill last year and it failed. Most don’t feel it will have much better chances this year.
