gun free zones aren't....period

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.
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.
Oh well, we're still better off than most of Europe.

Well, they are for the law abiding.

I thought we could go into the school if it was to pick up or drop off?
FWIW, I run into that all the time with picking up/dropping off kids, gov't buildings, etc.. My solution is for on those days, I use a clip-on IWB for the primary (BUG is always in a pocket holster). I can walk around to the back of the SUV, pop the lid, pull the safe and lock them up pretty darn quick. The guns never leave the holster. I often perform this routine several times a week and nobody is the wiser.

You have never lived until you have almost died. For those that have fought for it, life has a special flavor the protected will never know
My Texas CHL instructor informed us that while you may have your firearm in your vehicle...if you were to use it to defend your life...in the parking lot..i believe it was a Felony charge...wow!
Gee... "we can" ! LOL. It's all dependent upon your state laws. Here "school grounds" cannot be posted , only buildings, and it's legal to carry them in a school if it's not posted with the approved AG gunbuster sign.
I'm amazed we're ahead of Texas on this.
If its a good shoot in a school parking lot, you can still be charged for violating the law.
If you think otherwise, you need some more instruction.
I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.
