Zero tolerance for guns, violence, drugs in schools

The governor signed legislation creating school zones free of violence, guns and drugs. Crimes committed in these zones carry enhanced penalties. Gov. Thompson also gave school administrators authority to search student lockers if they suspect weapons, drugs or other illegal materials may be in there.
