How do you plead not gulity after you admited that you carried the gun to the school? He even admited he carried more that one time.

Is Curt not the county attorney? Seems like that would be conflictive if he is since JT is employed by the county and if he is fired from the BOE and decides to fight his termination who will Mr. Hopper represent?

I know John Thomas is a good person and he has done an excellent job as superintendent of schools for Hardin County, I pray this is resolved fast and he will be able to continue his good work.

HE WON'T BE CONVICTED IF IT IS LEFT UP TO OUR DISTRICT ATT. HE WOULD'NT EVEN FILE CHARGES. IT HAD TO BE DONE BY A PRIVATE CITIZEN. THIS SHOULD BE TAKEN OVER BY THE STATES ATT.

He is a good person but he broke the law! If that was just another kids dad bringing it in, nobody would care about how nice of a person he was they would want to put him under he jail bc he could if harmed someone, or what if someone would have gotten his gun from him and shot one of the other students??? It's more to it than hes a good guy, he has to be punished as any other would be, bottom line!!!

Did he have a permit to carry? Did he have it on his person? if he had a permit and did not have it on his person he is NOT guilty!

He had a permit to carry guns for 20 years... and has had tons of training. If a nut job came in that school, I would be HAPPY he has a gun on him to protect my kids and KNOWS HOW TO USE IT !!!

Good person means shit. The low life was so afraid of children that he had to carry a gun to be around them. Hopefully they nail his ass to the wall.

Do you know how we know you don't know the laws regarding Concealed Carry?

Go on, guess.
