Parkland, Florida is getting farcically ridiculous.
A teacher at Parkland, Florida’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High—who said he’d be willing to arm himself at school to protect students—has been accused of leaving his loaded handgun in a public restroom, where it was picked up and fired by a drunk homeless man. The Miami Herald reported chemistry teacher Sean Simpson told deputies he left his gun by accident but, by the time he realized, the homeless man had already found it and fired the Glock 9mm at a wall. Simpson said he was able to grab the gun away from the homeless man, Joseph Spataro, who was later charged with firing a weapon while intoxicated. Simpson was arrested and charged with failing to safely store a firearm and posted a $250 cash bond, but reportedly faces no disciplinary action from the school, where 17 people were killed by a teen gunman on Feb. 14.
Ah, guns, those little rascals! They always run off when your back is turned or pants are down! This incident sounds just a little suspicious. Let’s look at the original article:
Not the most normal sight: a gun left in the bathroom stall.
But that’s exactly what went down on Sunday in a men’s room at the Deerfield Beach Pier. …
On Tuesday, the Broward School Board unanimously rejected the state’s new program to arm school staff, part of a new law the Florida Legislature passed after the Feb. 14 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High school shootings that left 17 students and educators dead.
Boldface mine. Could the motive possibly have been more obvious? Don’t quit your day job, Simpson, although the fact that you still have your day job teaching at Parkland School post-massacre after negligently arming homeless bums is damning.
