Won't stop parents, because they are not obligated by an employee-employer relationship, and the premises weapons are prohibited already excludes parking lots. Yes, this stinks for teachers and workers at petro-chem (and similar) facilities.
Remember, in a life-or-death situation, when seconds count, the police are only minutes away.

transportation of hazardous, combustible, or explosive materials regulated under state or federal law
as a way to get around allowing employees to lock up thier firearms. Once again it appears that those of us who are responsible enough to build weapons for our government will be deemed not responsible enought to leave our weapons locked up in the parking lot.

I would think that most of the larger contractors would have a hard time establishing that their "primary business" is hazardous materials. There's a lot more to the defense industry than just explosives. There's guidance systems, surveillance equipment, intel sharing/dissemination, cryptography, stealth, radar... Likewise, I doubt that most of them are required to submit a plan under the Clean Air Act. Of course, that doesn't mean they won't try to claim exemption.

Sorry if it wasn't clear my K-12 comments were about the campus carry bill.
