Gun Free Zone
In my opinion no place should be allowed to be designated as a "gun free zone" unless there are proper procedures in place to insure it it in fact, gun free. Just because a law is passed that says a place is a gun free zone does not make it so; any criminal by definition of being a criminal will ignore such laws.
High fencing, metal detectors and armed guards, all access limited to the entrances with guards and metal detectors. Just like going to the airport. Then you can put up a gun free sign, otherwise, the general public can enter with their guns if it is otherwise legal to do so. When you put up a gun free sign you have a moral obligation to insure the area is gun free.
When kids are attacked by criminals armed with guns in a gun free zone, I think the parents should sue the school district and state legislature, everyone who voted for the gun free zone law because they did not pass enabling legislation to insure area would be gun free. I bet everyone who enters the state capital and the state courts have to pass through a metal detector to enter their gun free zone. Gun free zone should be eliminated or really mean something; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
