    Better gun laws than ours in Wisconsin?
    That's just messed up!

    When I was in High School, if you didn't have a shotgun in your car during hunting season it was the exception, not the rule, and that was in Michigan.

    Reminds me of the student that got suspended / expelled (don't recall which) for having a butterknife in the bottom of a box of stuff (he'd been helping his grandmother move), locked in his trunk.

    Zero Tolerance = Zero Intelligence

    That's crazy... If they have to have a "no weapons policy", they can at least enforce it case-by-case so that Mr. butterknife doesn't get the same felony treatment as someone who attempted to shoot up the school.

    No no no no no ...

    Mr. Butterknife is an escalating criminal who needs to be punished before it is too late. The poor soul who shot up the school is a poor guy trying to get his life straight and who just got exhausted from the oppression of his school aged peers. :roll:

    Nope. Zero tolerance pretty much ties the hands of the administrator. It stinks that you can't handle things like that on a case by case basis.

    Zero Tolerance is for imbeciles who are unable to use their noggins.

    Most of the ranch kids in my school had a rifle and a shotgun in the gun rack of their pickups as school.

    I'm only 32.

    Maybe so....but that law is from the higher ups. However the administrators are the ones who catch flak over it. They have no other choice but to enforce it or lose their jobs. This is near and dear to me because I will be one of those "idiots" that you speak of in the next couple of years.

    I didn't direct my comment at the administration or teachers. I'm well aware that there are six or seven teachers who still believe in freedom. ;)

    No problem. I am one of those freedom loving teachers that you speak of! Working on my Masters in Administration.
