    I happen to live in a gun free school zone. I bet most people who live in these no freedom zones have no idea what it means. I'm considering passing out fliers to get the word out.

    Any ideas?

    NOTICE
    YOUR house is located in a Gun Fee School Zone. You should be aware of what this means to YOUR rights.

    YES, YOUR car on YOUR cul-de-sac is in a GUN FREE SCHOOL ZONE.
    BEWARE - YOU MAY BE A CRIMINAL and not even know it.


    Prohibition of unlicensed carry
    Most states allow some form of unlicensed carry by people without criminal convictions.[8] This may be open-carry,[8] vehicle-carry,[9] or concealed carry without the need for a permit.[10] The Federal GFSZA prohibits unlicensed carry by making it a federal crime for an unlicensed individual to travel into a "Gun Free School Zone unless they meet one of the other criteria defined in Section 'B'." [11][12][13][14] The large number of K-12 schools in developed areas makes it difficult for an individual to travel any distance without entering a Gun Free School Zone.[2][11][12][14]

    Guns in homes

    The First Circuit Court of Appeals sustained a GFSZA conviction in the 2007 case of United States v Nieves-Castaño for a ... firearm kept in a woman's apartment....

    You seem to have cut off a key portion of that last sentence:

    ... firearm kept in a woman's apartment, which was part of a housing project

    The law explicitly states:

    (B) Subparagraph (A) does not apply to the possession of a firearm—
    (i) on private property not part of school grounds;

    Not that I think it's right, I assume the housing project was not private property.

    Still, I agree it's a bad law. I take it you have to secure your firearm, per the law, before leaving your property or apartment.

    The law states, in most cases, that a lease to property grants similar privileges to ownership.

    If I lease farmland, then I can hunt it like it is MY property. If I lease an apartment, then that apartment is treated as my private property for the purpose of nearly any law.

    The fact that this woman leased her property from the government is, from any practical standpoint, immaterial.
