On a macro scale you are correct, but the reality is the current furor to ban everything (or, at least, the convenient excuse for the current furor) is based on a massacre in an elementary school. There was no similar groundswell of anti-gun hysteria even after the Aurora theater shooting. Thus, on a micro level, since all these proposals are nominally purported to be in the interest of school safety (although, obviously, they would affect other venues, as well), the immediate issue very much IS school safety.
