If you're going to put together an anti-bullying law, ALL victims and potential victims of bullying need to be included.
Time after time, especially in this last year, we've seen law abiding gun owners and their children become the target of the anti-rights bullies. These attacks and bullying tactics against law abiding gun owners and permit-to-carry holders have been ramping up at an alarming rate recently, and there's no doubt that the adults perpetrating this bullying are instilling that same bullying attitude in their children, who will no doubt be targeting their innocent classmates with similar harassment, attacks and bullying.
In light of the evidence I will post below, the language in the bill needs to be amended to include ALL of the potential targets of bullying, as follows:
Intimidating, threatening, abusive, or harassing conduct may involve, but is not limited to, conduct that is directed at a student or students based on a person's (or parent's) actual or perceived:
--Political affiliation (Conservative, Republican, Tea Party, etc)
--Membership or participation in various clubs or organizations (i.e. NRA, other gun rights orgs, gun clubs, etc.)
--Participation in various hobbies, lifestyles or competitions (i.e. shooting sports, hunting, target practice, etc.)
As we've publicly seen published in mainstream media, newspapers, YouTube and Twitter feeds, the anti-rights bullies make no secret about their instability and their desire for harm to come to law abiding citizens who happen to be gun owners:
--Donald Kaul in the Des Moines Register calling for the death of NRA members and for its supporters to be dragged behind pick up trucks, and for a perfectly legal and law abiding organization, the NRA, to be classified as a "terrorist organization. Link.
--The Journal News published the addresses of legal, law abiding gun owners in their newspaper. They published the address of victims of violent crimes and victims of stalkers who'd purchased firearms to protect themselves. Link.
--Anti-Gun Newspaper’s Gun Map Leads to Stalking of Domestic Violence Victims. Link.
--A gun control proponent on YouTube calls for the murder of Michelle Bachmann: “I think we should shoot the bastards…. Especially Michele Bachmann. I think we should stick her up on a wall and put a bullet in her.” Link.
--Texas Democratic Party Official Calls For Murder of NRA Members. Texas Democrat Party official John Cobarruvias issued multiple terrorist threats to begin hunting and killing people who voice support for legal gun ownership:
“Can we now shoot the #NRA and everyone who defends them?,” he wrote on Twitter, also writing on his blog, “They need to [be] wiped off the face of the earth.” Link.
Liberals on Twitter call for murder of NRA members (Link):
@prisonforbush: "Someone should shoot this m*****f****r NRA President David Keene," added Michael Mayer. In at least two other tweets, "Mayer" suggested using Keene for "target practice."

@90sRememberer: “Murder every NRA member”
