  •  The criminal protection zones carry a side effect (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    too in that by prohibiting people from carrying or even keeping one locked in their vehicle, as some states do, the gun free zones extend to anyplace that one may go after leaving the school.  This is a clean infringement and one that extends well beyond the boundaries of the prohibition.

    A second side effect is that the prohibitions also make felons out of any parent that drops their children off while they lawfully have a gun in their car.  The alternative is to find places off school property, park, and then walk their children to school.  This creates multiple safety issues, one with leaving a gun unattended in a vehicle, two requiring that children be made to walk through what are likely congested traffic areas.
