Here is a link that shows a proposed law for Indiana to outlaw air guns on school property.
It's not a great idea to have air guns at school, but why does every solution have to be "make a law" against it? I would think the 3-inch thick Indiana School Law Book on my desk that is 1,370 pages long, would be enough.
Current laws against vandalism, threats, intimidation, and bullying should be sufficient to cover most problems like this.
No point in making a criminal out of a student who forgot his brother's BB gun was under the back seat of his locked car. The problem is not the air gun. The problem is when the object is used inappropriately and we already have laws governing inappropirate behaviors.
Currently "air guitars" at school are more of a distraction than air guns. :-)
Current society's solution to every perceptible concern seems to be to try and outlaw it.
