    I agree, plus arm all the teachers...
    Well, just the ones who aren't crazy

    I don't think we have any of those stupid GFZ's around here, so we can bring our guns into the school parking lot but no further. Maybe Dallas has a few, I'm not sure.

    A crazy suicidal/murderous kid bringing a gun to school to kill classmates is not going to respect a GFZ, no matter what the penality.

    Connecticut passed a few laws that are poorly written regarding school zones.

    The big one:

    Sec. 53a-217b. Possession of a weapon on school grounds: Class D felony. (a) A person is guilty of possession of a weapon on school grounds when, knowing that such person is not licensed or privileged to do so, such person possesses a firearm or deadly weapon, as defined in section 53a-3, (1) in or on the real property comprising a public or private elementary or secondary school, or (2) at a school-sponsored activity as defined in subsection (h) of section 10-233a.

    (b) The provisions of subsection (a) of this section shall not apply to the otherwise lawful possession of a firearm (1) by a person for use in a program approved by school officials in or on such school property or at such school-sponsored activity, (2) by a person in accordance with an agreement entered into between school officials and such person or such person's employer, (3) by a peace officer, as defined in subdivision (9) of section 53a-3, while engaged in the performance of such peace officer's official duties, or (4) by a person while traversing such school property for the purpose of gaining access to public or private lands open to hunting or for other lawful purposes, provided such firearm is not loaded and the entry on such school property is permitted by the local or regional board of education.

    (c) Possession of a weapon on school grounds is a class D felony.


    So technically, LEOs can't carry on school grounds off-duty. Not a major issue for me since I have no kids that young and I don't lurk at schools. But, it's still a stupid law.

    The law was later changed to allow carry a person with a pistol permit. So civilians can, but off-duty officers still technically can't ??? Go figure!

    Most officers I know also have pistol permits so for them it's not a big issue for a lot of us. But, it is a perfect example of politicians writing laws without thinking them through.

    Wait a minute, what am I saying? Politicians thinking.......
