This article details the events... Interesting points... > The teacher was a reserve police officer (so apparently all LEOs are not gun experts) > Sounds like typical semi-auto AD... dropped the mag but didn't clear the chamber... then pulled the trigger. That violates 2 of Col. Cooper's 4 rules in my book. But obviously, he was the only one in the room professional enough to handle a hand gun. In all honesty, I have serious misgivings about having teachers pack heat in schools. This guy was trained and was an LEO, and he still managed to F it up. What about little miss teacher who has her snubby taken from her purse? Uniformed SROs is a much better option, but even in FL, we see how much good that did. Our country needs to seriously reassess the way we handle mental illness and monitor individuals on psychiatric drugs. I read an article which leaked the testimony of the CT state police chief in which their research showed that nearly all school shooters have been on psychiatric drugs and that Satan worship has also been prevalent. Yet we continue to allow the head shrinkers to be the "experts" who tell us what to do (and cover their own arses).
