State Sen. Janne Myrdal (R-Edinburg), who believes gay people are similar to Nazis, described North Dakota schools as “wide open” to attack in an unsuccessful attempt to pass a bill to allow guns in schools.
“By not voting yes on this, we’re announcing to the world that our schools are a soft target,” she said as the bill came to a vote Tuesday. “Why on Earth are we leaving our local rural schools wide open and advertising them as a soft target?”
Myrdal did not address how introducing concealed firearms to a school might lead to accidental deaths. She also did not provide evidence of any specific threats being made against schools. The bill failed in the Senate 18-27.
