If I understand correctly, he brought the gun into the school and if that is the case than Ralph should be fired

According to this updated article, the gun, ammo, and hunting knife were all found in his vehicle.

Perhaps he was under the mistaken impression that both houses of the Georgia legislature had already approved the pending legislation that would make it legal for him to have a gun in his vehicle on school property.

Where in that article does it say he had that stuff in his vehicle?
If it is against the law for me to pick my kids up with my gun in the car then it is against the law for him to have on one school property also. NO EXCEPTIONS
And before you ask YES I do have a current valid Georgia Concealed Carry Permit.

Oh well, isn't THAT a clever idea! What is the point of that bit of bureaucratic insanity?

A world gone insane. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimated 52,447 deliberate and 23,237 accidental non-fatal gunshot injuries in the United States during 2000. I'm sure that the record has been trumped since then.

I cannot believe that he was later released from custody.

Better read the back. Personally I thin the school law should only apply to minors. So when you drive by the school and are in possession, are you in violation?

Not sure which side of the issue you are. If you tell me who you voted for then I'm sure I would better understand your position.

Well, suppose your wife drops the kids off at a Camden school then heads down to Jax or up to Brunswick to work. Wouldn't it be great if she could carry a firearm in the car for self defense without having to drop the kids off then drive back home to pick up her pistol.

Suppose your teenaged daughter has night classes at the college in Brunswick. Wouldn't you feel better about her being in that neighborhood and on the highway alone at night if she could carry a handgun in the car and park the car and the weapon legally on the campus?

Hell, if more teachers had guns at school, maybe the kiids would act better.

Ralph is a good Christian. I don’t believe he meant anything, but I don’t know .might have over looked them being in the truck. I think he had a permit for the hand gun. Don’t judge him until you know all the facts.

I hate to say it, but yes in todays climate it is not a bad idea to carry a weapon when out and about especially at night.

Don't judge? How can you overlook a handgun and lots of ammo, a shotgun and shotgun shells, and a hunting knife being in your vehicle? Especially when they are right out in the open. Come on people. This man knew he was wrong. My only concern now is what were his intentions? With all of that stuff? I thank God a teacher saw them and not a student. God only knows what would have happened if a student came across that vehicle and broke in and took any of those items.

It says it in the first paragraph. I just re-read it this morning and it is still written like it was when I posted the link yesterday.

Exactly.

While it is true than we now have a couple of post War on Poverty generations of middle and upper class liberals who have been systematically guilt tripped since elementary school into feeling that they might just have to be like sheep to the slaughter to atone for the sins of their forbears when attacked by one of the "unfortunate" miscreants from the permanent, uncivilized, underclass created by the welfare state, they are, thankfully, still in the minority here in the deep south.
