Another piece of gun legislation has been released from committee – House Bill 67 will establish ‘safe school zones’ and create a new crime for those who carry a firearm or destructive weapon in those areas. This would ban the possession of firearms or destructive weapons in schools and on school property – which includes schools, school buses and school property. It doesn’t include firearms that are in motor vehicles on school property when the driver is at a legitimate school function. The bill goes to the full House for a vote.
