Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, April 12, 2018

A chemistry teacher at the Florida school where 17 people were shot to death has been arrested. Authorities say he left a loaded gun in a public restroom, where a drunk homeless man picked it up and fired it. No one was injured, but the teacher at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School is now charged with failing to safely store his weapon.

Hopefully he will be stripped of his right to own. Zero tolerance for irresponsible gun owners.

It was a mistake/accident. There will be no consequences.

Clearly this is something they take seriously.

The guy did a stupid thing but is he a danger to the community or a flight risk?
High bails only benefit bondsmen.

Today the Republicans in FL put forth a Bill requiring that all drunken homeless men be armed to protect public restrooms from transgenders. It's the law!

Didn't happen at the school.

I agree this guy should lose his carry license, if not his permit.
This is negligent, mistakes are not.

Wow. Who could have predicted that?

But, first we need to know if he is a dues paying member of the NRA or a Dummycrat so we can direct our faux rage appropriately.

"According to the arrest report, Simpson said he forgot to pick the gun up after finishing in the restroom."

Why did he set it down to wash his hands?

Why did he pull his gun out in the bathroom?

Maybe his hands were all sticky after fondling it?

And how on Earth can you forget a loaded gun?

This one mystifies me. If you desperately need to carry a gun because you could be attacked at any moment... how can you not know where it is?

Heck, you be better off defending yourself with a car antenna than a gun you left in the -------.

God could not have given us a better example of why vernally arming school teachers isn't a good idea.

Only "crime of violence" misdemeanors disqualify ccw ownership in Florida. The worst he's looking is 60 days in jail and a fine. As a first offender, I don't believe that's likely.

Very, very irresponsible and stupid.

That said, millions of REALLY stupid people use phones in cars.

I wonder what causes more deaths in this country, guns or distracted driving???

People need to focus on the important things...

Questions, not addressed. What was a drunk bum doing in the school? After what had happened one would think the security would be heightened. What was the teacher doing with a gun in the school? As far as I know, the district had not made any new policies regarding teachers being armed. Why did the teacher leave the fire arm in the restroom? It requires a conscience act to remove the pistol from his hostler and place it on the sink. It is in his field of view, and he left it? This is starting to sound like a deliberate stunt to me. Why is anyone's speculation.

Yap, that's got to be it.

The teacher got a CCW, bought a pistol, paid a homeless guy to fire it in a public restroom, and got arrested because reasons.

Anything other than admitting that allowing every idiot with a pulse to buy a gun is a bad idea, right?

I love how with nothing more than a headline and an article you didn't read, you've already concluded this was a false flag event.

Like I said. Whatever happened to you, broke you. Seek professional counseling.
