    Default School closed

    So, my son's elementary school has closed but still has a basketball court on the property. would that building still be considered a gun free zone if it's not an active school?

    Your school is a gun free zone? That sucks!

    ALL schools should be closed until the curriculums are re-examined.

    My "not a lawyer" legal guess would be that if the school district still owned the property, the court would rule it's a school, even if idle.

    Only if you are a law abiding citizen, otherwise it's a free-for-all.

    Seems that the general consensus is that Kim Stolfer of FOAC is wrong and that Title 18 §912 (c) doesn't apply and that the Goslin decision doesn't matter either.

    Wouldn't be the first time he was wrong though, after all, 6120 doesn't say "you must inform when asked at a traffic stop".
