What do you think? Parents fill out medical forms, dental forms, etc... should schools demand to know whether parents have guns in their homes?

None of their business. Rsponsible gun owners will keep their weapons locked up. My kids were exposed to shooting at an early age and always respected the firearms in the Duke's mansion.

If anyone "demands" to know if I own guns I'll tell them to come and find out.

<ahem>I'd rather you tell me what you think with more words. Let me help you. I placed the question out there because I heard it buzzing around and wondered if I was the only one thinking, "WTF?!?!"

So, can you do more than two letters.

There's a big difference between health issues of a child vs. ownership of a gun by someone in the same house who's old enough to own a gun. Maybe a better question would be "does your child own a gun".

The role of schools is to provide an education for children. Unless there is evidence of some kind of abuse or other illegal activity that puts the child in danger or deprives him of his right to an education, what's going on in the home should be off limits.

When our kids were in elementary school the PTO sponsored a registration at the begining of the year for parents who wanted a list of homes that were non-smoking. It was a voluntary registration, but if you did register that you were a non-smoking household other parents knew their child would not be exposed to second hand smoke if their kids went over there for a play date. We used that list to determine where our children were allowed to visit. A second list of voluntarily registered non-gun owners would have also been helpful. Not that we were worried about someone loosing it and shooting the place up, but children can get into things, no matter how secure a parent thinks they may be. We always asked the parents before our children went to play if there was a gun in the house. If there was we would then ask their child over to our house as an alternative.

You don't need a list. You have the right to ask the parent(s) in question, and decide on that basis. A published list of non-gun owners or gun owners is not just an invastion of privacy, it's asking for trouble.

So far for the past two years Neidig Elementary at the beginning of the year has this problem. Someone writes that they are bringing a gun to school. It is terrible.

The HOME is the problem today, NOT guns. Before anything happens outside of the home,Im sure it was hatched inside of the home.
Some parents don't watch their kids close enough or sometimes not at all.

When you agree to say that it's the home that is the problem you inadverantly agreed with the school's policies of becoming the "other" parent. They tell you what they want your children to eat. Sometimes they check the bags and sometimes you have children informing onother children to teachers about what anther student is or is not eating and that it is in appropriate for school, like a snack is not chips but should be an apple. The school eventually will take over.

It's not wrong for the school to teach kids how to eat right. Unless I'm sending my kids in with the right lunch(thanks to my wife), I've never heard of the school checking lunches.I'll tell you something that I did once being a new parent.

My child asked me to visit him at lunch one day so I thought I would be cool and bring him Mc D's (soda,fries,and all). Boy did I learn something that day. The teachers NEVER said a thing, but when I looked around at the other kids they were eating grapes,apple slices,everything good. I will never make that mistake again.BTW, only 3 of the kids at the table asked for some of his fries.
So I don't think the school is checking lunches.
