I am so glad someone is concerned about this also. My child is in this particular teachers' class and I am very agitated by what I read. The school needs to take a restraining order out on this gentlemen. There is very much a red flag that raises in my mind about this situation.

The firearm was not on his person, probably in his car. I would bet that over half of the parents that pick up kids from school have a firearm in their car.

Regardless of whether it was in his car or not, he is obvious not of a stable mind if he is harassing his estranged wife at her job! How many of those situations do you see go bad in the news lately? She is a great teacher and its no reflection on her at all and I hope that law has put something in motion to keep him off the school property!!

The thing that concerns me the most is that both of my kids (elementary & middle school) say that the doors stay open all day instead of being locked like they are supposed to. They say that anyone can just walk in. Also, they have tornado and fire drills, but never drills on what to do if someone does show up and start shooting.

We don't know the situation! How do you know what kind of person either of them are! You don't know what kind of person anyone is! They can put on a good show! I know for a fact how both of these people really are! Not what they appear!

As family, I know exactly who and what both of them are. I would like for you to inform me of one negative thing about her! How she has endured him and his "disability" all these years and put herself through school to become a teacher while he rode the roads and acted like a complete ass most of the time. I know enough to know she did the right thing putting him out and he needs to leave her be and quit acting like he is some big shot carrying a gun on his side and tight friends with the law trying to intimidate her! The law still put his ignorant ass in jail!! He ain't shit, never has been, never will be. I know the situation from the horses mouth and I've known them both all of our lives, including their siblings and parents!! So before you go calling people out for what they may or may not know you need to consider that YOU don't know as much as YOU may think you do!

And one more thing, nobody knew a damn thing about Adam Lanza or his "situation" either before he killed 20 kids 11 days before christmas. I dont need to know the situation to know that crazy people dont need guns and they sure as hell dont need them on school property whether on their person or in their vehicle cause crazy can and will snap at any time!

Really, I am a family member too! I'm taking the Christian side of things.There are two sides to every story! I'm not going to call either one of them out! I'm just saying that things are never what they appear! Only GOD know who people really are and that is all that counts. Do not judge and that's a commandment from GOD.

Nobody knows what goes on behind closed doors. You got his side, her side, and the right side. But, I do have to say this much, He was good enough for her to have four younguns with. If you ain't happy, don't have four younguns to begin with. It aint like the crap got sour overnight. She put up with it as someone else said "for years" and now, it really aint about THEM, it is about the kids they are tearing up. Both of the people need to suck it up, and act like adults and deal with their own problems instead of having their parents all dealing with their problems for them. If people want to start throwing the bible around, they need to read what it says about marriage and divorce, not your "selective" interpretation of it. Kills me how folks just pick out selected verses when they start throwing around the Bible. Says to that man and woman is supposed to cling together. It don't say nothing about yo ma in law or mama being called in to manage your household and yo children and yo problems FOR you. Also, woman, if you put yo man on the street don't act all shocked, hurt, and pissed off when he starts tapping it somewhere else. You got yourself to blame for that one.

Kids seem pretty content to me when I have seen them. Nope, things dont fall apart over night, you are right about that..but there comes a point when its time to move on, especially when the other person is pulling you and your kids down. I know people who have been married many more years than this couple who are just together for the kids. Which is worse? Kids are much more likely to succeed when things are happy as opposed to when things are miserable. Maybe it got to the point that trying to make it work was futile. Where was the bible quoted at above?
and as a matter of fact, this topic didnt start out as a discussion about the a marriage that was ending...it started out as a concern about a loaded gun being on school property, albiet by the estranged husband who was harassing his estranged wife and had been for quite some time!
And all I can say about him "tapping it" somewhere else is YAY for him and what a blessing for her - the estranged wife that is, not the person he is "tapping".

He is crazy! He had just been told by the sheriff not to have that gun on school property anymore!! He then goes straight to the school with the gun on him to confront his ex wife! Serves him right to get locked up and his gun taken away from him! He has issues!! By the way, how are you going to be on disability because you can't "work" but you can be at the gym every single day working out?!?! Hmmm! Loco & sorry!! Get a job!! Maybe that is why his ex wife got tired of him and kicked him out along with all the lies he told!

the person who keeps judging all these posts as mean and clueless must be kin to him. if i saw him in the gym working out with his bad hip that is getting him a check every month I would report his ass to the SS office because people like him are why this country is broke! that bad hip didnt keep him from making all them youngins he aint supporting! then he gonna hobble around town on a cane. get real. he is crazy. frowny face or not, its the truth!

you all need to look at your own back door before you start talking about someone else. We will all be judged one day and it's not by you. Thank God!!!!!!!!!!

You all love to beat a dead horse don't you? These people have been separated for almost two years. Both are alright by me. Who cares where EITHER one resides or with WHO. As far as the "gun" issue is concerned,the man went to the school to pick up his kids. Yes, he had a gun in his truck under his seat for which he has a permit and license to carry. He has never made a secret of it and he has never denied the existence of this weapon. You might be VERY surprised to find out who ELSE has the exact same LEGAL permissions and carries a gun in their vehicle, on their person or even in their purse. He should have used better judgement and waited on his kids OUTSIDE as advised instead of following his habitual routine of going in to the ex wife's classroom to get the kids. Yes, she did make it clear via the Sheriff that she wanted no part of him. The gossip hounds and people who have "other" motives would like for all readers to believe that this man went to the school seeking vigilante justice with the INTENT to brandish a weapon against his soon to be ex wife when he was simply there to pick up his children. He never raised his voice, he never acted out in any way. When he was asked to leave the property, he did so without further adieu. Perhaps the principal was a tad bit too hyper since it was the day of the Sandy Hook shooting. Perhaps the ex wife feels slighted and has a bigger bone of contention to pick since he decided to seek comfort from his old mistress. Who knows what sex, lies, and videotape scenarios could unfold. Should we be concerned about school safety and take precautions? YES. Is this person a threat to the public and should they be tried in the court of public opinion? NO.
