    GFSZ fail.

    Just saw this on the news. The GFSZ fails to stop a shooter.

    This is something I have kinda wondered about myself here. The sort of child I was, if anyone tried to "lockdown" a school, I'd find a way to leave anyway. I worry that now older, and when I become a parent.. How should/would a parent deal with a situation like this.

    At any rate. Is it legal to do that? Hold you out of a public school from retrieving your own child? I don't have any kids yet, but really. I would have an extremely difficult time allowing my child to be in a dangerous lockdown situation. I'd want my child with me.

    This happens all the time. Two days ago three boys were arrested in a Berkeley high school, two handguns were found. It doesn't look like any of the boys will face charges, just expulsion.

    Then last week five men were shot a block away from a school in SF.

    And this is just me casually stumbling upon these stories on the limited websites I visit. Happens all the time.

    More proof that the "Gun Free School Zone" fee-good BS law, aka CA PC 626.9, does not stop the crime from happening.

    This law should be revised as an enhancement for a crime committed with a gun, just as commission of a crime in a School Zone has an enhancement for possession of drugs.

    No wrong doing = No GFSZ charge.
    Commission of a crime = GFSZ charge.
    Gun control isn't about guns -- it is about control.

    Hey demnogis,

    But, you are using rational thinking skills...our legislature is not capable of that!

    Isn't there another part of the penal code that deals with crimes in a school zone? An enhancement that calls for a stronger penalty, during school hours.
