I'm sure that every nutcase that decides to shoot up a school will be more than happy to abide by a ban on guns at schools.
In case the Senate legislators haven't noticed, most of the gun violence takes place in "gun free" zones. One question I recently heard is something they should ponder:
“Mr. Senator, would you feel safer with a big sign posted in your front yard that reads “"Gun free house - No guns allowed in my house or on my property."”
