Valid point sir.
I read that as an individual with a contract, but I can see your interpretation is also reasonable.
I know a teacher who carries in NH, maybe I'll ask the principal? NOT :-)
Here is what you quoted (I'm guessing from a summation, as there are no subparagraph delineations):
Link to source - scroll halfway down, to "q")
18 USC 922(q)(2)
- (A) It shall be unlawful for any individual knowingly to possess a firearm that has moved in or that otherwise affects interstate or foreign commerce at a place that the individual knows, or has reasonable cause to believe, is a school zone.
- (B) Subparagraph (A) does not apply to the possession of a firearm—
- (i) on private property not part of school grounds;
- (ii) if the individual possessing the firearm is licensed to do so by the State in which the school zone is located or a political subdivision of the State, and the law of the State or political subdivision requires that, before an individual obtains such a license, the law enforcement authorities of the State or political subdivision verify that the individual is qualified under law to receive the license;
- (iii) that is—
- (I) not loaded; and
- (II) in a locked container, or a locked firearms rack that is on a motor vehicle;
- (iv) by an individual for use in a program approved by a school in the school zone;
- (v) by an individual in accordance with a contract entered into between a school in the school zone and the individual or an employer of the individual;
- (vi) by a law enforcement officer acting in his or her official capacity; or
- (vii) that is unloaded and is possessed by an individual while traversing school premises for the purpose of gaining access to public or private lands open to hunting, if the entry on school premises is authorized by school authorities.
The "or" before the last clause indicates that any single one of those conditions in sufficient to exclude the law from applying to an individual.
Do not take this for legal advice as applicable to any specific situation, I am merely trying to clarify my understanding of this particular piece of (utterly absurd and unconsitutional) legislation. I am not a lawyer, I just do their dirty work.
I would love to change the world, but they won't give me the source code

Ah... reads a little different don't it? But... confusing none the less eh? What it almost read to me was that a CWP gave you ability to have one unloaded or locked in container or rack. And that was all it gave to that status. Did you try looking at it that way? But I see your point too.
And rediculous and unconstitutional I do agree.
