You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass.

i dont see how he can be charged with a felony. its completely legal to have a gun secured in a vehicle on school property.

there has to be more to this story or the liberal media are putting their spin on things. most likely both.

Why was he in bed in his pickup? Why was there a gun in bed with him? Too many unanswered questions.

This Teachers crime was a "thought crime"....or rather based on a fear of thought.

It used to be that Americans actually had to be a criminal to be charged with a crime....not just in possesion of an inanimate oject sitting in the back of another inanimate object, on "Holy Ground"....er Public Property.

Lawyers are doing what they cannot accomplish through legislation.....restricting and gutting the 2nd Ammendmentthrough the courts.

I believe there are 47 (?) crimes in Amerika that will result in the permanent loss of 2nd Ammendment Rights....and the right to defend ones life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness.

I think that every person that respects the constitution of the united states of america should show up on his court date and stand up for our gun rights and hunting privelages for together we are strong separately they will take all our freedoms away our country has become a dictatorship and everyday we lose more of our rights and freedoms to our overreacting under thinking legislative body. long live the revolution

Story doesn't say much about the circumstances like why would school officials be going through the bed of a teacher's pickup. A felony seems harsh in this case but who knows what is really going on here.
From my understanding the gun was UNCASED, LOADED, and not in the bed of the truck but in the back seat, which the vehicle was unlocked. Oh and I believe his son is young, under 12 years old. Thankfully no kids got ahold of that LOADED GUN! If this would have been a student that had done this, there would be a big price to pay. Isn't it illegal to transport a LOADED, UNCASED, weapon anyhow? Sounds like this guy doesn't know any of the rules, maybe he shouldn't have weapons (or allow his young son) if he doesn't know how to properly handle them.

If your understanding is what went down, then this guy deserves everything he gets. Pretty stupid to not know that was in your back seat. As a shooting sports enthusiast, I don't know how anyone could drive around with a an uncased, loaded gun in their back seat and not know about it. Inexcusable.

Hmm, i know its against the law to have a loaded wepon in plainview without proper lisences.any place of inployment will let you know that they have the right to search you and your property once on the employment property grounds that is everywhere. To do that they need evidance this person is acting weird, behavior has to be changing u know warning signs.

This story is missing way too many facts to provide context. Was the bed of the pickup covered? Was the gun in plain sight? How did the school officials or police become aware of its presence? Was there a warrant to search the truck? I don't condone bringing a gun onto school property and punishment is in order, but I'd like to hear how this all unfolded. From the brief blurb we got, it sounded like the guy had no mal-intent
