Illinois state law requires schools and other places that don’t allow guns on the premises to post a reminder to those entering the building. This is done by placing a 4″ X 6″ decal near the entrance with a picture of a gun with a red line through it. (People can’t read, so we have to post pictures instead.) This is driving the gun-hating liberals mad. They claim that even the image of a gun is “disturbing.”
School officials want the public to know that in compliance with state law (House Bill 0183), schools, churches, government agencies and liquor stores statewide will be posting 4-by-6-inch stickers reminding the public, particularly those with a concealed-carry license, that there are limits on where a gun can be carried.
While schools didn’t allow guns even before the concealed-carry law was passed, they still are required to display the reminder. Some officials are questioning the mandate, and some find the sticker image disturbing.
God help the government-schooled child that might draw an image that remotely looks like a gun, say the word gun, or point his finger in a way that might resemble a gun. What is disturbing is the way these children are treated and traumatized over innocent play.
“One of my biggest concerns as a principal is safety and security,” Tinley Park High School Principal Theresa Nolan said. “It is bothersome to have to post a sticker of a gun that says, ‘Hey, folks, leave your guns at home.’ ”
I find a lot of my daily chores “bothersome,” but I do them anyway.
“You can’t look at this (sticker) and not think about Sandy Hook,”
Actually, you can. I never once thought of Sandy Hook when I looked at this sticker. We need to remember that the only reason why mass shootings are allowed to happen is because no one stopped the shooter. Legally carrying a loaded gun is the most effective way to stop mass shooters.
The simple solution here is to homeschool your kids. If you choose, teach them how to handle a gun properly. Make it a part of your school. Most importantly, teach them the importance and the true meaning of the Second Amendment. And you can put whatever sticker you like at the entrance of your school!
