The Council Rock School Board voted 5-4 Thursday night to add the Chancellor Center, where the board holds its meetings, under a policy that bans weapons from school properties pursuant to state law.It's odd that even in Pennsylvania, which is well known for its gun culture, these folks feel the gun-free zone is a good thing. Gun-rights activists always try to excessively disparage this popular belief. It's a bluff on their part. The truth is most people agree, the practice of allowing guns at schools and public buildings and around kids is best avoided if possible.
The change basically states that the Chancellor Center is subject to the same state laws applicable to its school buildings. It reads, “The board affirms that the Chancellor Center, as a building of the Council Rock School District, is covered by and subject to state laws generally applicable to the grounds and buildings of public school districts.”
