Here is a picture of one of the signs posted at my kids school. I thought it interesting that only "illegal" drugs are prohibited while ALL weapons (legal or otherwise) are banned. I am not surprised one bit by the sign, but I can attest that the campus is not "Weapon Free" at least twice a day ;) and I wont be subject to a search simply by walking onto school grounds. Later I'll have to look up the administrative regulation just for fun.

Bet you $1 that all drugs are banned as well. Most schools have a federally mandated zero tolerance policy that they often interpret as not even asprin or prescribed meds unless dispensed by the school nurse. WAY overboard if you ask me.

Do they search the kids?

Not that I've heard of.

You don't say, but if it happens you have CCW, carrying your listed handgun(s) is an exemption to PC 626.9.

"Weapons free (http://www.thefreedictionary.com/weapons+free)" in school zones? Sounds good to me - open season on bad guys!

Yeah, I think they are oblivious to that though, or they simply ignore it by citing a completely different "administrative regulation" in order to lead someone to believe ALL weapons are illegal there.

Any school personnel that attempt to search me is in for a stern refusal. They had better have an on-duty, in uniform police officer there, and said officer had better have Probable Cause.

Yes, I've read news stories about kids suspended for taking Tylenol to school-even when the school admitted knowing that it was "just Tylenol". No tolerance policies are "no brain" decisions.

If they don't search the kids, it is not weapon free. I remember a security guard getting stabbed at my Education Center.

"Weapons Free?" I'll take two. I love free weapons.

I was just thinking that.

You should go there with a sharpie and where it says 'in accordance with laws/constitution' you should correct it to say 'in violation of....'

They cannot search you without consent. No consent, they can ask you to leave the property. If you fail to do so in the presence of a uniformed LEO, you can be arrested for trespassing.

I had to laugh the other day when walking into IKEA. They have a "this is a weapons free zone" graphic on their glass door entryway.

Silly Swedes.

My girl friend wanted me to pickup her kids from school right after I left the gun range. I call them on there cell phones and made them walk a block away before I would pick them up.

Probably want to make them walk at least 2 to 3 blocks.... from WikiAnswers:

"How many feet are in city block?

80 to 100 meters, 100 meters is around 328'

There are no "standard" blocks. In some cities they may be very small and others much larger and the size may vary greatly within a city. In the central part of my hometown, there are 13 blocks in a mile going north and south but only 8 when traveling east or west.

Hate to see a Calgunner get popped on a gun possession in a school zone charge! :(

This is a Public School.

Silly Swedes.

Since it's a public school and I'm not breaking any laws with my Legal Weapon and I have legitimate business there, there may be consequences to "trespassing" me.

And ask them how that zero thought er... zero tolerance policy tastes now? ;)

If that sign was posted at my kid's school I would complain very loudly that if criminals take kids hostage on the campus I would want the police to bring their guns with them when they respond. It would be pointless for the police to come but have to leave their guns in their cars.
Duh.

Just stop by the front desk and ask them to point you to the site where the weapons are free....

Silly Swedes.

Founded by a Swede 60+ years ago, now a Dutch corporation. Products made in 50 countries. Noted as a retailer of sweatshop produced products. Home Depot with panache.

Re Ikea --

Noted as a retailer of sweatshop produced products. Home Depot with panache.

And not much of that.

Particleboard kay-rap. I worked in Europe for a few years. This was the sort of cheap stuff that kids bought to furnish their first pad. It was abandonware -- pretty soon an apartment would accumulate a collection of chipping Ikea kay-rap from all the previous tenants. I certainly abandoned mine but brought back some genuine Danish teak shelf and bedroom units.

Roger on the sweatshop.

I do like Scandinavian furniture. But people who think Ikea is "Scandinavian furniture" haven't looked at the real stuff yet.
