    Can't carry a backpack because it might contain a weapon?

    WTF makes them think they're above the constitution?

    You can't legislate how people dress, or the clothing accessories they wear.
    You can't force people to not engage in lawful activity.
    Evangelical lessons are provided upon request. Anyone wishing to meet Jesus can just kick in my door.
