  •  I have worked in an inner city school (3+ / 0-)

    as well as one in a mixe environment as well as a suburban one.  I am flatly going to say having them gun free is of critical importance,particularly at athletic events where things can get very heated.

    •  If you believe that, then you clearly do not (0+ / 0-)

      understand the mentality and mindset required for carrying a concealed weapon in public, which makes your position on the matter more understandable.  When one carries a gun, they can no longer allow themselves to act, or react that way.  The news has plenty of examples of idiots with guns and it is still exceptionally rare for one of them to be a licensed individual, which says a lot about the mindset and mentality of those who choose to make that commitment.

      •  oh I understand it (2+ / 0-)

        from a federal elected official with a concealed carry permit

        from family in law enforcement at a federal level

        from friends in law enforcement in state and local levels

        and none of them seem to think that guns should be in schools
