A proposed City of Richmond School Safety resolution asks Congress to ban “large-capacity ammunition cartridges.”
It also asks to implement “universal background checks.” Such checks would require a background check for a private sale just like the background check currently required for a retail purchase.
Ironically, almost every high-profile firearm-based attacker acquires his or her gun via background checks at retail sales, so such an expansion would do nothing to prevent future attacks.
The proposed Richmond school safety resolution voices opposition to arming teachers for self-defense, even as it calls for more gun control outside of schools.
Moreover, the proposed resolution calls for extending gun-free school zones.
