National Rifle Association
The stage is set for a vote on a concealed carry bill. And it’s one that the National Rifle Association does not like.
National Rifle Association President David Keene says that while President Barack Obama’s gun control efforts failed in Congress last week, “the war has not ended.”
Adolphus Busch the Fourth says he disagrees with NRA’s stand on background checks.
When a gunman killed 26 children and staff at a Connecticut grade school, Missouri Rep. Mike Kelley quickly proposed legislation that would allow trained teachers to carry hidden guns into the classroom as a “line of defense” against attackers.
“You use a gun to commit a crime, go to prison. Period,” NRA President David Keene said.
A two-hour House Judiciary Committee hearing on guns its third in a week produced virtually no common ground between the two sides.
The bill would also require teachers to perform a simulated intruder drill put on by local law enforcement.
State Rep. Elaine Nekritz (D-Northbrook) won’t say directly if the attorney general should take the issue to the U.S. Supreme Court.
“John Boehner, the speaker of the House, basically threw in the towel. He said ‘we can’t do it here, do it in the Senate’”
And while no changes will be implemented immediately, Captain Sam Dotson calls the meeting productive.
