Position: Oppose Status: Failed to pass out of House Education Committee
Authorizes school district to allow firearm safety instruction to eleven-year-old students on school property.
January 15, 2019: Referred to House Committee on Education Introduced January 14, 2019 by Rep. Witt
Without a hint of evidence that this program will reduce crime or firearm-related injury or death, the Oregon gun lobby wants the schools to hire them, their friends, and their guns to teach eleven-year-olds “gun safety” at TAXPAYER expense.
We are particularly surprised that Rep. Witt is sponsoring this bill in light of the insults hurled at Rep. Witt just days before he introduced this bill.
