So within a week of a school mass murder, you take it upon yourself to walk unannounced into and around at least two different schools to test their security. Your qualifications appear to be that you have a concealed carry permit and you have grandchildren in the schools.

You do sound smug. You also appear to have a horrible sense of timing. Why couldn’t it wait for say a month, once cooler heads can look at the matter? Or did you not want to miss the opportunity to make it about you and how right you are?

And let’s take a look at that “legal sense” of yours. You apparently think that you are free to walk into a school because it is “public”? Please. If you have the right to waltz around a public school then why are you upset no one challenged you for doing just that? I mean those are your rights, correct?

You sound like a hothead. Good luck with that.

You may ask me - what have I done? For one, I didn’t do what you did, that’s for sure.

“Remember that these reporters used to think everything was an AK-47; now, every ‘scary’ firearm will be an AR-15.”

You’re right, but the new buzzword is Bushmaster.

*Laughing*

I paused before typing "AR-15," trying to decide whether or not to type "Bushmaster." So count me in.

I don’t think if a teacher would be alarmed if he or she saw someone walking up the steps with a board. They might strain their eyes trying to read what he wrote on it.

You gotta know what you did was foolish.

True. With the high number of attacks lately, you should never have left your Weapon in the car. Had someone actually attacked the school at that moment, you would have been defenseless, and unable to show how having someone on school property covertly armed would help put a stop to this nonsense.

What was he charged with?

I think that has been cleared up, hasn't it ? He wasn't a student, bottom line.

Or six months....

But... what happens if TODAY, the day you put off doing it, is the day that a crazed lunatic feeding off the end of the world hysteria walks into the school and kills your children, or grandchildren?

I noticed they state he was 33, ergo not a student. Brings to mind a question... If he hadn't been carrying a board with those words , would he have gotten in ?

The same day of this massacre, a man walked into a Russian school and killed around 20 children, all with a knife. Funny how the media has largely ignored that story.

Thankfully the wise legislators in Kalifornia have outlawed the Bushmaster by name. Of course, virtually identical rifles with other names engraved above the serial number are perfectly lawful as long as you remove the pistol grip, flash suppressor, folding stock, and some other nonsense.

How a mass murderer could possibly kill dozens of small children without a pistol grip or a flash suppressor is a mystery to these same legislators.

I hope all the bird hunters, many of whom just aren't too interested in protecting gun rights and who were convinced that nobody was ever going to take away their guns, are paying close attention to what is happening. After all, nobody needs a semi-automatic shotgun.

In a rational country this idiot would be dead at the hands of teachers and parents.

Well, even as I "overreacted" and am "smug" (dismayed is more like it) I follow the rules, especially the gun rules. (Oh, wait, did you miss your /sarc tag? I really hope not!)

Probably trespass.

The last line of the article is:

Johnson is being held without bond and will undergo a mental evaluation.

That is perhaps the scary part of the story. They threw him into the loony bin. That is what the Soviet Union did with “dissidents”.

No. I meant it.

I follow the rules,

The problem is we are playing a deadly game, and they don't follow the rules. That is why rules making schools 'gun-free' zones have only led to more deaths in schools.
