The NRA tells us that more guns is the solution to gun violence. Let’s put that to the test.
Chemistry teacher at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School (Parkland Florida) — that school has been in the papers lately, if you recall — agreed to start carrying a gun.
How did that work out?
Well, when he was down at Deerfield Beach Pier, he visited the men’s room and…
According to the sheriff’s office report, Simpson told deputies he’d left his gun by accident. By the time the chemistry teacher realized his mistake, the Glock was already in the hands of a drunk homeless man who had picked it up and fired. The bullet hit a wall.
Simpson was able to grab the gun away from the vagrant, Joseph Spataro, who was charged with firing a weapon while intoxicated and trespassing.
As for the MSD teacher, he was arrested and charged with failing to safely store a firearm, a second-degree misdemeanor. Simpson posted a $250 cash bond and was released.
Well played, reality.
