Between a rock and a hard place
I picked up my daughter from school today, and since the year is winding down, she needed to bring home some art projects and whatnot. So she gets to the car, and I ask "where's your stuff?" "Oops, I forgot".
She is 17. :wink:
She's got a few friends with her, so I tell her to go get the stuff, and I'll wait in the car.
She wants me to help her carry.
I say, "I can't". "Why not?" "I just can't, go get the stuff".
I don't really want to say why in front of her friends.
She and her friends leave and go get her stuff.
When we get back in the car, I explain why. And that I really didn't want to get out, disarm and lock the gun in the trunk in front of her friends, let alone discuss it.
She hadn't thought of that. She was trying to think of a scenario why I couldn't get out of the car and had decided I must've hurt my foot or something.
These laws are incredibly vague and inconvenient. The state legislature voted to do away with these "no gun" zones, but naturally, all the school stuff gets removed before it goes before the governor. :aargh4:
Oh well, we're still better off than most of Europe. :duh:
