Something to Know - 22 December

NRA Act to Provide for School Security and Defense

This petition is for Congress to enact legislation to provide for armed sworn police officers from city, county, or state government to be staffed at all school activities where students are in attendance, for the purpose of school security and protection.   Funding is to be as follows:  The sale of all new or used firearms will be taxed at the rate of 50%.  The surcharge on each bullet or shell sold will be set at one dollar per unit, and may be amended as needed.  The requirement of all firearms be registered for an annual licensing fee of $500 per firearm.  To maintain solvency of this Act,  revenue shortfall will be resolved by a surcharge on sales by all companies involved in the manufacture of firearms and ammunition.   The provisions herein are intended to have this act be self-funding.

The Executive Director of the National Rifle Association announced a plan to strongly suggest to Congress about their meaningful contribution to resolve gun violence in the schools.  To that end, I have created a petition to formally carry forth that intention, but his suggestion included staffing (retired firefighters, volunteers, and others) of less-than professional standards), but did not indicate how his suggestion was to be paid for.  This petition requires the staffing by highly trained police.  More importantly the petition identifies the source of funding in order to make the Act independent of taxpayer general funds and makes the act self-funding.   Please read it and sign if you agree.
