Schools still have zero tolerance for weapons, but the hard line on disciplining students who bring them to school appears to be softening.

Zero tolerance still means that districts will not tolerate students bringing a weapon or a lookalike to school, said Cahokia Superintendent Jed Deets. But punishment varies, with some districts offering students more leeway than others.

It does not get any better for the rights of Illinois gun owners than the dismissal of fanny pack carry charges on Thursday and the acquittal of Unlawful of Possession of a Weapon charges on Friday. Vana was found guilty of selling Brass Knuckles and I think State's Attorney's argument that Vana's paperweights "quacked like a duck" were persuasive.

Earlier in the day, he was pulling handguns from a glass case, seeing how they fit in his hand, but now, with his head lowered, he talked to his wife on a cell phone.

Like an increasing number of people since Michigan's concealed weapon law went into effect July 1, the Ann Arbor man was in the market for a handgun. And like several of those attending Saturday's gun show at the Washtenaw Farm Council Grounds, he shied away from media coverage, declining to give his name.

"I see nothing indicating how (Gun Industry Watch) feels that a home-defense shotgun does not enhance the security of the neighborhood."

"It's long been clear that many Americans feel reassured by firearms; and if you fear the civil disorder that further attacks might bring, the desire for a gun is not entirely irrational. ... Gun-control advocates who have denounced the Emerson decision might someday find themselves indebted to it. To restrict gun rights effectively, we may first have to acknowledge that they exist." --Wendy Kaminer

"I would expect [security] to be more secure now than it was in Atlanta (for the 1996 Summer Olympics), but I don't think it will be so tight it's suffocating."
