Here is a link to their official statement on the 2nd Amendment http://www.pta.org/files/local_lead...ng at Sandy Hook Elementary School_FINAL1.pdf National PTA supports the following specific policy recommendations: Mandatory license to purchase a firearm Mandatory three day waiting period and background check to purchase a firearm, regardless of retail venue Prohibition on the sale of more than one handgun per month to any individual Prohibition of firearm purchase and possession by those convicted of spousal abuse and child abuse Mandatory increased annual license fee for any firearm retailer Reenactment and expansion of federal ban on the sale and possession of military-style assault weapons. Federal ban on non-sporting ammunition Establish federal tax on assault weapon ammunition Mandatory restrictions on Internet firearms sales, including restrictions on materials used to make/modify guns As a teacher, I get their monthly newsletter, which I just unsubscribed from and proceeded to send them a nasty note as to why I will no longer be a member of their organization. I also let them know that if they wanted to keep students safe, money would be better spent on encouraging counseling services. Our middle school counselors have 700 students each. There is no time for "counseling". It's all scheduling and behavior issues. Why don't they have trainings for teachers on how to recognize potentially mentally ill students and how to refer them for an evaluation? Why don't they offer parents resources for their children if they suspect something is not quite right? Those are things that would have a better impact than disarming honest American citizens. Anyway, I'm sure most of you suspected this was their opinion, but here it is in black and white. I told them in my email that I would be letting everyone know what their position is.
