Ned Carter Walker, 41, faces one count each of possession of a firearm on school grounds and possession of a knife on school grounds. If convicted, he faces a possible sentence of up to five years and eight months in prison.

Walker remains free after posting bond.

If he had used that gun to stop a mass school shooting he would be a hero.

They finally get a teacher with common sense and cojones and they nail him to the wall.

Figures.

It’s really hard to determine whether it’s politicians or public school officials who inhabit the absolute bottom of the IQ barrel. But, they are indeed fighting it out, aren’t they?

His best defense is to claim that he’s “gay”. They’ll back off in fear of getting sued.

” The attorney said his client has no previous criminal record”

Well, we’ll soon put an end to THAT!

About the same.

One question, how did they find out? Did the moron show it to someone. The first rule of concealed carry is don’t talk (brandish) about concealed carry. People that you think are you friends WILL burn you.

More likely he would be prosecuted for violating the civil rights of the shooter. That said, even in Idaho we can't carry on a K-12 campus. Until that law is changed, you're just stuck on stupid if you carry in a designated prohibited zone.

How did they find out he had a gun and a knife? Did he tell, or display it?

From the article.

Rueben Littlejohn, the San Diego School District’s police chief, has said that staff members at Farb Middle School said they heard Walker was keeping ammunition in locked cabinets in his classroom. He also told students and staff that he had a gun and loved firearms.

Police checked the cabinets but did not find anything improper.

Officers contacted Walker, patted him down and found a .38-caliber semi-automatic pistol with a seven-round magazine. They also found a knife with a 2½-inch blade.

One would hope, but in Calofornia, both lawyers will probably be trying to get gun haters on the jury. Their stupid laws will create another felon, unable to own, or even touch a firearm.....

The details of who, what, when, where, and why are in the article... Short but informative.

a knife with a 2½-inch blade.

OMG a 2 1/2 inch blade. A pocketknife, just like the one I have carried since I was FIVE years old. That will be 60 years this fall. The only one who has ever been cut by my knife was me. Idiots...

It seems to be implied that the police pat down of him was at the school. If he was not on school property with the gun and 2.5 inch knife, then wouldn’t the charges against him be different?

Somewhere I saw it written, “Always carry, never tell”.

Appears to be somewhat self-inflicted. The worst of all species to tell anything you want kept quiet is a child.

I am no lawyer, and I don’t play one on tv, but I think their pc is a bit light and without a warrant this should get tossed if he has a good lawyer.

It's only a matter of time until another Sandy Hook massacre happens.

Newtown taught us that school officials are idiots (no armed defense, the doorway was right next to a classroom, and the substitute never got a key) and Boston taught us that gun control is worthless.

Next time it happens we ought to blame the surviving teaching staff. They should be shown NO MERCY and be treated as murderers. In sense, they will have accomplices to murder.

My children will never step foot in a school unless I get overwhelming evidence that the administrative staff aren't idiots.

Don't forget that leftists are at war with children.

The more innocent someone is, the more they hate them. The purpose of the schools are to brainwash them and mold them into expendable tools of the state. Their lives are of no value to the leftist vermin as proven definitively by Kermit Gosnell.

He was an idiot for announcing it to the world but that doesn’t make this situation any more sensible.

I’m amazed that there aren’t massacres every five minutes in California. Not only do the laws punish the innocent but the guilty (even murderers) are treated like precious unicorns.

Your honor, my client is a gay, muslim, transgendered, agoraphobic, lactose-intolerant pedophile ...

Case dismissed!

Ah, but an un-Constitutional law IS VOID. So we carry to our hearts content in liberal demented mecca “gun free zones” — for the safety of ourselves and young innocent ones, while others who choose to live on their knees foregoing their inherent right to self defense become victims.

And let us not forget the 11th commandment, thou shall not get caught. In this case, that means to avoid a search of one’s person, by any means necessary.

Self-defense and taxes are a bit different eh? One gambling your mortal life and the lives of others? There is no analogy. Bobbleheads would stand taller off their knees.
