With regard to the recent letter, and front-page article, concerning a gun show being held on Los Alamos Public Schools rental property.
It should seem apparent that there is a clear distinction between rental properties and student occupied property. Indeed, perhaps a wine tasting event should be welcomed (however a neo-Nazi group would be unwelcome anywhere and the comparison to a gun show was a stretch at best).
If one were unable to delineate this separation as legitimate then wouldn’t the public school system be expected to police all the activities held on their income producing rental property? If this is the path to be taken, then the Los Alamos school system had better take a close look at what the new Smith’s Marketplace intends to merchandise, as they will be deriving income from this rental. I anticipate that they will be selling alcohol and tobacco products and may carry sporting goods and knives, all forbidden items at any school.
I feel certain that there are individuals and groups that would find it distasteful that the school system rents to Los Alamos National Laboratory (just having had their anniversary held on an active campus), and many religious organizations.
