I'n not even going to try and explain the No Gun Zone concept to you people. Half are too dumb to understand and the other half too partisan to even try to understand. I'm just not sure WHICH half you're a member of.
You are not going to explain it because you will look foolish defending it. A sticker in the window invites lonnies to shoot em up there.
Thanks from Sabcat

The Florida school was NOT a “gun free” zone. There was an armed guard and as an ex student of the school you can bet Cruz knew that. Guess what? He went there anyway.
Thanks from Camelot and Hollywood

Another leftist that does not understand the subject that they are discussing
Quote:

The Gun-Free School Zones Act (GFSZA) is an act of the U.S. Congress prohibiting any unauthorized individual from knowingly possessing a loaded or unsecured firearm at a place that the individual knows, or has reasonable cause to believe, is a school zone as defined by 18 U.S.C. § 921(a)(25). The law applies to public, private, and parochial elementary schools and high schools, and to non-private property within 1000 feet of them. It provides that the states and their political subdivisions may issue licenses that exempt the licensed individuals from the prohibition.

So you want that repealed?

The next time a Cruz wannabe is in the parking lot with his AR15 the cops can’t do anything since it’ll be legal.

That is almost as silly a statment as the one you posted to defend with it. Almost

The wooden ammo used by these nations was designed to be used for training, they were in effect blank rounds, and were never sent to units for use as a combat round, though they were used by combat units to propel rifle grenades

In WW1 the British did use wood in some .303 combat ammo but this was merely a cost saving effort as the wood was fully enclosed by a metal jacket.

What's silly about it? If there is no such thing as a No Gun Zone why couldn't he?
In Tennessee your personal auto is considered an extension of your home. Just as I can have all the firearms in my house that I want I can do the same in my car. No CCL needed.
IF there were no such thing as the No Gun Zone law what would keep me from parking across the street from the local elementary school with a car full of AR-15's. What law would I be breaking? What would be a cop's probable cause to stop and question me, much less take my private property from me?

So in your banning of guns it needs to be semi automatic and styled after a military automatic assault weapon. The semi automatic part is straight forward but who decides whether a weapon has the right shape? Its a pure judgement call. Who makes that call?

So? Who decides if a rifle is "shaped" enough like a military macine gun? really we are not talking about the function of a machine gun but rather just the "look" of a machine gun.

Who decides what rifle looks a certain way?
