There's two tables in my friend's child's school, peanut free and not.

His son sits at the regular table and loves peanut butter sandwiches but there's another boy (who he's not friends with) who is allergic to peanuts and sits there too.

This boy complains that my friend's son shouldn't eat it if he is sitting at the regular table.

Now obviously, that boy shouldn't be sitting at the regular table as he's allergic.

My friend tells his son to continue bringing his peanut butter sandwiches even if the other boy continues to sit there.

I agree with him but if the other boy gets a bad reaction, he might be blamed even though the boy should be at the peanut free table.

Are we wrong?

I agree with Mr. Met. The allergic kid is putting himself in a situation which could cause him to have a reaction...
However, I don't think peanut butter is friable, meaning it doesn't have dust. The kids should be fine sitting together.

Your friends should go to the school principal and tell him/her that there's a potential problem about kids with peanut allergies in the school. Tell them of what's going on with the kid you wrote about. Sooner or later, the kids parents will look to blame anyone and everyone if something should happen to their kid. But, most of all. The kids parents should have told the school that their kid is allergic to peanuts. And the kid should not be sitting at the table where he know and see's other kids eating peanut butter sandwiches.
