Safety Zones to Protect Texas Kids from Sexual Predators
Right now, small towns in Texas that want to prevent convicted sex offenders from living near schools and daycare centers are being threatened with lawsuits by pro-sex offender groups.
If we are going to stop convicted sexual predators from living across the street from schools, Texas law needs to be changed.
By signing the petition, you are telling Texas lawmakers the following:
- I agree that small towns need the freedom to create safety zones around schools, daycare centers, playgrounds, and other places children gather.
- I understand that sex offenses against children are an under-reported crime, and it is foolish to allow convicted sex offenders to live in the immediate vicinity of schools and other places children gather.
- I agree that the loophole in the law allowing large cities to create safety zones while preventing small towns from doing the same must be closed immediately so that local leaders can create safety zones tailored to their communities.
When we have enough signatures, this petition will be given to the Texas Legislature. Your opinion counts!
IMPORTANT: If you have children or grandchildren who go to school in a small Texas town (population 5,000 or less), then CONVICTED SEX OFFENDERS ARE ALLOWED TO LIVE NEAR THEIR SCHOOLS!!!
