The stink is over the standard "gun free zone" stickers that show a picture of a gun in a red circle with a line through it.
One school leader claims the stickers could be confusing.
Tinley Park, Illinois High School Principal Theresa Nolan explained, “I think the general public will be alarmed by it and wonder if people have been allowed to bring guns to school in the past.”
Nolan continued, “you can’t look at this (sticker) and not think about Sandy Hook.”
That is in reference to the murder of 20 children and six staff members at the Connecticutt school in December of 2o12 by Adam Lanza.
The principal also believes the warnings are unnecessary. “I have no knowledge of guns ever being in this building,” Nolan added.
She told Chicago’s Southtown Star, she wasn't ruling out the stickers but rather raising concerns.
Instead, Nolan would like to see the buildings go to a “subtle” sign, perhaps a logo.
District Superintendent Paul Enderle agrees, saying he doesn’t like the stickers either but admits “it correlates with the law, and I think if it ultimately helps to keep schools safe, that’s the objective.”
