Guns in Schools Bill Passes Colorado Senate Committee

The Colorado Senate State, Veterans and Military Affairs Committee approved Senate Bill 5 on Tuesday January 24th.

This bill will probably pass the Republican-majority Colorado State Senate, but will probably be tabled by the Democrat-controlled House.

A vocal proponent of “teacher-carry”¬†legislation is House Minority Leader Patrick Neville (R-Castle Rock), who experienced the horrible attack at Columbine High School as a student.

Several school districts across the United States allow trained teachers or trained staff to carry firearms in their facilities.
