    Let them see that not all guns are bad... soooo they don't grow up thinking anti-gun... just saying...

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.

    The bus drops my kid off at the door to my house after traveling the 200 feet up the driveway. I asked my daughter if any kids saw my gun and were talking about it or scared by it, as was told to me by the teacher, and she said "no." While I agree with some statements concerning te bill of rights...I do see my liberties and constitutionally guranteed rights being trampled by police to accommodate one anti's agenda, even though I am well within my rights to do as I please on private property. Its irritating that the school feels the need to question a man with a gun, whom they accuse of being "scary." So terrifyingly scary they come into my home to confront me and ask me to put 1/8 of an inch of fabric over it because that will make it sooo much better. Ugh...

    Did they actually tell you that they would refuse the bus service because of it? Or is that just a concern of yours?

    I think it's pretty weird to be asked to do this... they're guns, kids know what they are, what are they afraid of?

    But if this was my son, I'd just tuck it in. Maybe I'm a pansy, but I just wouldn't want to deal with an argument over it... maybe say "yeah, I'll do it, but...." then tell them why you think you shouldn't have to, but I wouldn't make a big deal about it.... just me though

    The tone of the request and the way she snuck it in as she was leaving made it pretty clear what the message was. It was more telling than asking me not to. It was implied.

    Well fortunately for you she can't actually tell you not to. I'd say do what you do, but if you keep on OC and they try to cancel her bus service over it, I'd fight 'em. It wouldn't be hard to win a fight like that.

    Tread very lightly in this matter. If they have visited your home to ask you to cover your weapon, I doubt that this situation is over. School Districts are stepping across the boundaries of our Constitutional Rights more and more in the name of children safety. I would request a meeting with the person that came to your house to find our exactly what agenda they have planned. I might take an attorney to this meeting.
    I've done a lot of work for School Boards and have seen a lot of scary stuff......in the name of the kids. I call BS.....its about Government Control. Period.

    Did you ask her why? Keep it simple.
    I don't always have nothing to say, but when I do, I post it on Facebook.

    Was the cover request the official reason for the visit?

    Perhaps they'd be less enthused if you hid your Second Amendment issue but sported a little First Amendment filth on your shirt and let your boxers out of your pants every day (like that never happens in certain parts of town).

    I'm trying to see the upside of displaying the firearm at a park, McDonalds, the mall, WalMart, etc. where kids congregate. Oh wait, because I can?

I took her to the bus the same way last year and even walked on to strap her into a car seat everytime last year for her speech therapy at a REAL school.

    Does there always need to be an upside when an adult does something?

    While her request seems odd, I don't see much to make a big deal out of it. It's not like she "recommended" that you leave it inside your house locked up. Maybe then a "trampling of your rights" can be argued.

    If its concealed you won't have to worry about a tweak bus driver getting spooked and reporting that she/he felt a parent was about to pull a gun.

    Lets hope his daughter's bus driver isn't tweaking at any point

    Sounds like a simple case of the teacher trying to impose her beliefs onto you....... Last I checked the law is on your side...

    Kids need positive role models. Not all children are fortunate to have one. These little ones are being thrown into a liberal indoctrination camp for the next 12 years. In my opinion seeing a gun on a dad or mom would do more good than can be measured. Of course you need to decide if you are a Crusader. I hope you are. I am not.

    I read what you posted, and responded. If it is more important to you to carry as you like than to keep the free bus rides coming for the Headstart program, do it.
