John is in error about the goal of the legislation.
It isn't about making "schools safer"
It's about making "people safer"
It's the "Personal protection act"
Not the "school safety act"
This is about the numerous rapes, armed robberies, carjackings and kidnappings which all occurred on campuses this year while car burglars stole guns from where responsible people had to store them instead of being able to store them safely on their bodies concealed like they do everywhere else.
His conclusions naturally are all flawed since they begin with a false premise.
