    School officials are no fans of gun ban signs. Gotta picture of a gun!

    "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. [ ... ] “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.’ ” Nolan said she is not opposed to posting it, she’s just worried that not enough people are aware of what it means and could misinterpret the new signage. “I think the general public will be alarmed by it and wonder if people have been allowed to bring guns to school in the past,” she said. In her 22 years with Bremen Community High School District 228, she said, “I have no knowledge of guns ever being in this building.”

    Nolan, and others, take issue with the sticker’s design. “I would have appreciated something more subtle, yet still recognizable — a logo, perhaps, not a gun,” she said.

    Absolutely surreal: Chicago school officials hate guns so much that they object 'no guns' stickers because they picture guns

    According to our NRA lobbyist, from his discussion with members of MOM yesterday, they don't like seeing the signs because it reminds them that they lost.

    The picture of a gun is even too much.

    So don't post.

    The thing is with the new IL CC law, all prohibited placed are required to post by law. so the schools, government buildings, playgrounds, etc, don't have a chose. MOM feels that the signs are insulting to their cause because they lost, and the signs are rubbing their noses in it.

    There has been a new bill posted to the ilga.com site in the last few days that would reverse the gun signs, meaning that businesses and such would have to post guns are welcome signs. And any place without a sign would be off limits for CCW.
