Aimless rant about carry laws
#1
Carrying on school grounds specifically. [/u] My 6 year old had flag football practice tonight at the local highschool in the gym. We had to run to Walmart and do a few other errands before going and would not have time to stop back home before going to the school. So my choice was to disarm myself at all the places we were going to, not just the school....... or carry for protection, but commit a crime and carry on school grounds. Seriously hate feel good laws that are made out of ignorance and short sighted thinking.

Bah, kept the gun at home but that really bothered me.


btw.... anyone else think kids sports are too structured? I remember coming home from school, going out to the alley and meeting the other neighborhood kids where we organize our own sports like stick ball, hockey etc.... Still remember that common phrase "CAR". I never see kids doing this anymore. I think today's kids are loosing out for this.

The prohibiting of firearms on school property is pointless. There is a field near my house that is owned by the school district and the closest school is 3 blocks away. No guns allowed at the field though. We have seen what gun bans do for shootings at school.

The kids in the street take too long to move. It's more of an odds & ends topic though so I won't get into it here.

Seriously, what is wrong with people. Unfortunately this goes to show that the no guns in school zones law does not keep criminals from breaking the law. It just ensures that honest citizens will be sitting ducks for those who have no qualms about ignoring the law.

Other lawful purpose. Shrug

Doesn't have Supreme Court precedence, but has been used successfully in recent years.

Other lawful purpose ->Deep concealment. Concealed is concealed.

Not something I'm willing to risk or be a test case for. I'm a teacher in a different district. I could see me losing my job real fast if I got arrested for having a firearm on school grounds.

There have been other, recent cases, of teachers & other school faculty being 'caught' with firearms on them at schools. Read up on them if you're really interested in the subject. As of now though, there aren't any Supreme Court cases to go by. Fortunately though, it appears most likely that the charges are dismissed before getting that far.

Just a random question. Does anyone know when the no firearms on school property was passed? I can remember kids in highschool (i was much younger) coming to school with rifles on gun racks in the back of their trucks. and im not that old.
