DA declines to prosecute superintendent for carrying gun on school property
Dec. 12– Hardin County Director of Schools John Thomas has been carrying a firearm on school property, Sheriff Sammy Davidson said this afternoon.
"I did call John and tell him not to carry his gun to school," he said.
Davidson said Stacy Moore, a school resource officer and sheriff’s department investigator, observed a holstered pistol under the director’s jacket while he was at Hardin County Middle School on Nov. 14.
Signs at schools across Tennessee state: "Felony. State law prescribes a maximum penalty of six years imprisonment and a fine not to exceed $3,000 for carrying weapons on school property."
Exceptions to the law include active duty military and federal civil officers acting in their duty capacity, along with on-duty state, county and city law enforcement officers, and private police or security guards employed by the school.
Davidson said he has turned the matter over to District Attorney Hansel McCadams.
Hardin County Board of Education Chairman David Long said he has been in contact with McCadams to request an opinion in the matter.
A formal letter from McCadams to the board will be available to the public after the board’s regular monthly business meeting scheduled for 4 p.m. today, he said.
Saying the board has not yet seen the letter, Long declined to release it to The Courier.
McCadams told the newspaper at 3:45 p.m. that he has decided not to prosecute.
(Ed. note: This is a developing story. Details to follow.)
UPDATE, 5:15 p.m.– In the letter to the board, McCadams explains the decision, saying Thomas had the gun holstered on his person, and it was seen "glancingly" by a board employee on school grounds. "There is no allegation it was brandished or displayed in any offensive or defensive manner."

McCadams says also that following his review of the various statutes governing school security, "I believe Mr. Thomas has a legal defense to a criminal charge. I have reached this conclusion having also considered a school director’s duties per state law and the exceptions enumerated by statute."
Asked if he was director of schools, would he carry a firearm on school property under existing laws, McCadams said, "The school board needs to look into other avenues of providing security to the campus. That’s probably not where they want to go."
Asked if he was aware Thomas was going armed on school property, Long said, "No. I did not know he was carrying a gun on the school grounds."
According to the board chairman, there was "nothing inappropriate" in the director’s actions. "It did not violate Tennessee law. That letter fully explains it."
"I’ve made up my mind I won’t be carrying anymore," said Thomas.

So, I guess if I have a permit to carry, I can do so on school grounds as long as I keep it holstered and do not brandish it in a offensive or defensive manner. Is that correct Mr. Mcadams? The law seems pretty clear to me regardless of who has a gun. So, if you can allow him to carry on school grounds, so can I.
Yeah Baby

Does not matter, no guns on any school property except those that meet the guide lines, which he does not.

If I was a school superintendent or principal, or even a teacher, you bet I would carry if I had a license! Some of these school shootings could have been prevented IF teachers and staff were allowed to pack. It is my RIGHT to bear arms. If they want to face off over that, fine. We will meet at the Supreme Court.

Even if he looks humble and haggered he still a sorry MF for DA, and he should be made to resign immediately. Did he post a letter to editor in your local paper? He did in the Camden paper about how he going to get tuff about drugs and gangs. He must be running low on cash. Think he might need some friends with guns since his were all taken?

I have seen his letter in the P.I. but he sounded not too convincing on his war on drugs when he's accused of doing them himself. Everybody talks about his cocaine habit that he had in past.

Very interesting. Thank you.

I do know last year at Inman they changed the dress-code. No more long T-shirts, oversized pants or sweatshirts with hoods and pockets could be worn in class. There were others, but the general idea is, I think, that kids can conceal items under baggy clothes too easily. The dress-code was not bad, just sensible. Teachers do fear for themselves and the kids, and with all the shootings and violence in the country they are just looking out for everyone.

Why should the schools be any different than the Henry County sheriff's entrance-way or a lawyer's office? You find people there behind glass windows and you have to speak into an intercom to whomever. So schools should have the same protections, IMHO.

What am I talking about?

I'm talking about concealed weapons. Kids who wear over-sized clothing that can hide knives, nunchucks, small weapons and anything else they can think of that could take someone out. And, by the same token, teachers and the principal are not allowed to have a concealed weapon in the school, all for which they have no defense. So, schools changed the dresscode so that it makes it more difficult to hide dangerous weaponry, and kids can not conceal so easily.

Go back to 'Joker's' link and 'Disgruntled's' post and you will see what they are talking about.

I am pro second amendment, and anyone who passes the state requirements should have a right to carry, and that would include school personnel who need to watch who's coming and going in the schools where children have no defense.

Does this help?

Not a problem, Honky Tonk, I guess it did sound a little off topic on the first post.
