    I don't think it was a question of owning it. 99.99% of rented apartments are still considered to be private property even though their residents don't own them. Public housing is exactly that - public property that's administered by local or state government. I don't necessarliy agree with the concept but I understand the logic. Obviously it only applied because it happened to be within the dreaded 1000'.

    I'm sure the Gov was trying to nail this woman for whatever they could. If she wasn't actively involved in drug-dealing it certainly appears that she was aiding and abetting those who are (possibly unknowingly). This has "Let's make an example of her" written all over it.

    It's important to remember that the school-zone law is a federal law. State laws are meaningless with regards to its application. The (federal) wording of the law allows for a number of exceptions. Any alterations that a state attempts to make is pointless since a federal prosecutor will simply ignore them.

    And in Oregon, with a CHL, you can go on through the door as long as the gun stays in your possession (a teacher got in trouble because it was in her purse in her desk drawer).

    Well that is certainly one Oregon law I am jealous of! Actually, last time I dropped my daughter at school, it was for the homecoming dance. We were in the school parking lot and her "escort" - not really a date - was there to meet us. As I was leaving, I said, "Don't foget, JD....her dad carries a gun." He said, "I am very well aware of that, sir!"
