School Safety - Jennifer Pawlik for AZ House

School Safety

 

Our children deserve to learn in a safe environment and as adults, we owe it to them to provide this and have a constructive, respectful discussion about guns and school safety.

I support the Second Amendment. I do not want to take guns away from law-abiding citizens who use them for hunting, recreation or protecting their families.

I do however believe we need to strengthen background checks to keep these weapons from people with a history of committing domestic abuse, violence or with serious mental illness.

I believe a teacher’s most important responsibility is to educate our children. I do not support arming teachers, instead I am in favor of implementing common sense measures to improve school security and protect our communities from gun violence.

To these ends, during 2019, I helped vote out a bill that would have allowed loaded guns in school parking, co-sponsored SB1468 "Schools: Suicide Prevention Training" which was signed into law May 8, 2019, and sponsored HB2562 "School Counselors; Grants" which delivered $15M for police officers and counselors in the final 2020 approved budget.
