The Volokh Conspiracy: "But some gun-control advocates question the wisdom of teaching students about firearm safety at a time when many schools have taken a zero-tolerance approach to guns.

'It would become a bit of a challenge if you mix the two. Our view is that guns have no place on a public school campus,' said Ronald Stephens, executive director of the National School Safety Center near Los Angeles. . . ."

This logic is just stupid. To my knowledge, most schools have a zero-tolerance policy for sex on school grounds as well, but there's sex-ed in school. Same for drugs. Just because you don't allow something on the grounds doesn't mean you can't educate the students about safety in its use.
