Off the school grounds, and not any farther. If the sidewalk in front of the school is a public sidewalk (i.e., adjacent to a public roadway), you're good to go.If walking by a school how far do you have to be away from it.
See preceding answer.Across the street or farther?
You are not wrong. The "authorities" overreacted.A few weeks ago there was a story on the local news. Some one saw some one with a gun at the gas station across the street from a public school and called the police, and the school was put on lock down, according to the news report. I do not think the gun owner did any thing wrong. Am I wrong?
