State Sen. Phil Pavlov, R-St. Clair Township, said having gun safety zones where "responsible, law-abiding gun owners" with concealed pistol licenses are prohibited from carrying concealed pistols "creates tragedy."
On Wednesday, the state Senate passed a package of three bills allowing people with an enhanced concealed pistol license to carry their guns in places such as churches, schools, stadiums, bars and other places currently designated as safe zones.
"Since 1950, 98% of the mass shootings have taken place in gun-free zones," Pavlov said.
Current state law prohibits concealed carry in gun safe zones; courts have ruled, however, that people can open carry guns in such places under the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
|"We do not feel that more guns in schools will be the answer to violence in schools or anywhere else," he said.
Clue: What you 'feel' has nothing to do with natural law, the Constitution or reality.
Hence, it should have no effect on any law concerning RKBA in any venue.
