And assuming no other un-constitutional laws were broken--WHY should anyone care? And WHY does it matter that he is a teacher?

In 48 states he could lawfully be permitted to carry that weapon---you can trust him to teach children but NOT with a weapon? And we wonder why Illinois is a corrupt pit of insane government gone-wrong.

and personal, to lib trib, I hope it's hot down there when you arrive.

This man didn't do anything wrong. Illinois' gun laws are unconstitutional and thus illegal. The 2nd amendment is all the justification he needs to carry a firearm. He should've been more careful and purchased a better concealment holster like this - http://www.securityprousa.com/decoshho.html

Hey stupid, he made threats to the owner and more that you will never know. Sounds like you own guns and support him without knowing the facts. Typical idiot you are.

Do you know what the threats were? The news story said he was sitting in his car in the parking lot. Unless he pointed the gun at someone and threatened them, how is there a crime, unless he did not have a permit to carry a gun? He did not attempt to flee. I'd like to know what the other person who made the complaint did or said.

Well in Illinois there is no such thing as a carry permit. And he was found in the lot after "fleeing" from the business.
