Rep. Walberg Comments on 'Gun Free' Zones in Schools


LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - Michigan Representative Tim Walberg says that keeping schools "Gun Free" zones is not the answer to keeping children safe and that "Gun Free" zones tell criminals 'no one will be able to stop you here.'

Congressman Walberg says he's open to placing armed guards in schools for the communities that feel it's necessary. He also believes in allowing faculty, with the proper training, to carry a concealed weapon on campus.      
"To encourage the law abiding citizen and to discourage the trouble maker. We've got to get back to that and sadly it's come to the point where we have to consider having guns in schools, but we do. It's reality," said Walberg.

As far as high-capacity magazine assault rifles, Walberg says it's law abiding citizens' second ammendment right to have them: the right to bear arms.
