NEA-NH applauds today’s House vote to move HB564 to the Senate to help make NEW Hampshire schools safer places for our children.
“Guns have no place in safe school zones. Period,” said Megan Tuttle, NEA-New Hampshire President. “Safe School Zones are not an option – they are the very least we can do to help assure our student’s safety.”
“Our foremost priority as educators is to ensure the safety and well-being of our students. All of us share a responsibility to create and maintain safe schools and communities. House members took a stand today to help make sure every student is safe, and that every parent can trust that their child will return home after school.”
“Failure to enact rational laws to prevent mass shootings is inexcusable. The time to act is now. We are hopeful the Senate will follow the House to ensure every child learns in a school that is safe. Students, parents and educators should not have to live in fear of being the next victim.”
