Tucson School District Asks Parents to Agree to Be Responsible Gun Owners, Freak-Out Ensues

Among other things in school-registration packets, a Tucson-area school district has a pledge for parents to sign, asking for them to agree to be responsible gun owners.
Of course, someone's offended. Apparently, this has to do with Obama-loving liberals trying to tell free Americans how to live their lives.
This agreement from the Flowing Wells Unified School District was posted on the website of Gun Owners of Arizona, which took particular issue with the statement, ". . . I will keep any guns and all weapons I own under lock, away from school grounds and away from my children."
The Arizona Daily Independent, a right-wing website, says the following:
Perhaps the most disturbing provision in the contract for Tucsonans is the requirement that parents must "carry out my responsibility to teach my children how to settle arguments without resorting to violence and to encourage him/her to use those ideas when necessary, and to follow school guidelines for reporting guns and weapons they see on campus to an appropriate adult."Boy, that is disturbing. These liberals think children should be taught to settle arguments without going straight to murder? What is this country coming to?
The Independent also says that the district fielded complaints from two parents about this contract.
This could mark the first time a parent actually read all the crap in a school-registration packet.
Obviously, the punishment for not signing the contract is a 20-year sentence in Obama's mind-control camps. Oh, we read that wrong -- turns out, there's no punishment for not signing the contract.
On the Daily Caller, a national right-wing website, readers commented as to why locking up guns is a bad idea -- "when some Democrat/meth addict kicks in the door, the homeowner is unable to defend himself."
