My daughter's high school class (seniors), went to observe a trial yesterday, as part of their government class. Of course at the courthouse door, they have metal detectors and they check purses. My daughter said two of the girls were armed to the teeth! Knives, tasers, sprays...everything except guns. They stashed it all in the bushes so they could get inside! There is a pretty limiting state law about knives on K-12 campuses! My daughter carries a Benchmade mini AFCK (sadly discontinued!), but she leaves it in her car and parks on city street, not on school property (this is a private school...not public). Thing is, one of the girls fathers is a federal LEO!!! Guess he figures he wants his daughter well protected..... I did print out the state law for my daughter to take to them. I am sure the school has a no weapons policy, even though one could come up with a knife that skirted around the state law.
