You need to spend some time in a school to gain some enlightenment, sport.
The only weapons policy unarguable (or so it should be) by an idiot attorney

Learning the rules of language and mathematics is pretty much the same as

zero tolerance policy is the only policy against which there is no
argument (by stay-at-work parent or idiot attorney)? So a professional
homemaker, telecommuter, or smart attorney could submit an effective
However, since "unarguable" is an adjective, the only correct way I can
read your sentence is "The only <unarguable> weapons policy (or so it
should be) by an idiot attorney or stay-at-work parent is zero
tolerance.", which doesn't make much sense. I'm left to infer something
along the lines of "the only indisputable weapons policy (created) by an
idiot attorney or stay-at-work parent is zero tolerance"- is this what
you're getting at? How does being created by an idiot put it beyond

parenthetical "or so it should be" imply you agree with this policy, which
was created by idiot attorneys?
