A federal law, Gun-Free Schools Zone Act, prohibits people from carrying a loaded gun, even if that person is properly licensed, within 1,000 feet of a public or parochial school. Phillips said the man was unaware of this law and immediately expressed remorse for the mistake. The chief said an officer waited with the man until he left with his children and no citations were given. However, the subject was told he could never again bring a loaded weapon within 1,000 of the school.
