With many school districts banning even the imagery of weapons on campus this seems a bit ridiculous. Your thoughts?

For me this is a little difficult to judge. I do not want to hamper someone's ritual especially if it pertain to their religious belief. Still bringing what can be considered a weapon into the public arena presents a number of problems.
Firing projectiles at people who I presume did not wish to have these projectiles hit them creates an unsafe condition and everyone's safety is important.
The biggest problem I'm having is we as adults have created such a society that many mothers are uncomfortable about breast-feeding their babies in public, many fathers are afraid to put their arms around her daughter is in public.
We cannot unfortunately have it both ways, a free and liberal behavior with no touching or posturing when we are in close proximity to one another.
Agreed the guy spitting "bb's" was harrasing people.

place of business... (3) A person who violates this

So if the courts ruled that this child could carry this weapon. Is the law void?
