"Gun Free Zone" signs need to be banned...

...because they have a picture of a gun on them:

http://southtownstar.suntimes.com/news/2...signs.html

Quote:While schools didn’t allow guns even before the concealed-carry law was passed, they still are required to display the reminder. Some officials are questioning the mandate, and some find the sticker image disturbing.

Several Southland schools already have the stickers posted at entryways, including Reavis High School in Burbank, Incarnation School in Palos Heights, all four Lincoln-Way high schools, schools in North Palos School District 117, schools across Oak Lawn and Hometown, plus Eisenhower High School in Blue Island, Richards High School in Oak Lawn and Shepard High School in Palos Heights.

Others expect to have them visible within the next few weeks.

While complying with state law isn’t a point of contention, some school administrators find the sticker’s image to be a bit alarming.

“One of my biggest concerns as a principal is safety and security,” Tinley Park High School Principal Theresa Nolan said. “It is bothersome to have to post a sticker of a gun that says, ‘Hey, folks, leave your guns at home.’ ”

Nolan said she is not opposed to posting it, she’s just worried that not enough people are aware of what it means and could misinterpret the new signage.

“I think the general public will be alarmed by it and wonder if people have been allowed to bring guns to school in the past,” she said. In her 22 years with Bremen Community High School District 228, she said, “I have no knowledge of guns ever being in this building.”

Nolan, and others, take issue with the sticker’s design.

“I would have appreciated something more subtle, yet still recognizable — a logo, perhaps, not a gun,” she said.

“You can’t look at this (sticker) and not think about Sandy Hook,”
she said, referring to the 2012 school shooting in Newton, Conn., in which 20 children and six teachers were killed.

If only the Sandy Hook school were displaying those stickers. A tragedy might have been adverted.

Admit nothing.  Deny everything. Demand proof.
If we lie to the government, it's a crime. If the government lies to the people, it's called politics.

No. More like, kicked in the head by a mule, funny or dropped on their head as a baby, funny.

You know, I've been consciously trying to swear less, but something like this always comes along and...



Seriously? Are they fucking retards, or what?




Note: I'm getting to the age where I don't care if you're offended by the word "retard". If you are and can't see the difference between it's use in this sentence and simply being mean to a mentally challenged (is that allowed) person, well, I don't know what to tell you.

Yeah, nice way to over think this bullshit.

A logo, perhaps not a gun? Technically, the picture of the gun IS a logo, isn't it?.

The harder these people try not to look so stupid, the more idiotic they become. . . . . .
I don't suffer from insanity.
I enjoy every minute of it.

Maybe they can put a sign up with this on it since this isn't allowed in schools either.
