School officials want picture of gun removed from “gun-free zone” sticker

School officials want picture of gun removed from “gun-free zone” sticker

This is the perfect combination of idiotic and militant. Chicago-area school officials are outraged that the state’s new “no guns allowed” sticker includes a picture of–get this–a gun.


Yes, really:

Guns were already not allowed in schools before the law was passed, and now some school officials are worried the Image on the warning sign might send the wrong message.

“One of my biggest concerns as a principal is safety and security,” Tinley Park High School Principal Theresa Nolan told the Southtown Star. “It is bothersome to have to post a sticker of a gun that says, ‘Hey, folks, leave your guns at home.’ ”

As Weasel Zippers asked, “Would they prefer a Pop-Tart chewed into the shape of a gun?”
