I keep warning about this.   I told many times I worked with people who would forget their gun belts in the bathroom or other place they took it off.   We need more control of guns.  We need less guns in schools, not more.   Hugs

The Miami Herald reports:

According to the sheriff’s office report, Simpson told deputies he’d left his gun by accident. By the time the chemistry teacher realized his mistake, the Glock was already in the hands of a drunk homeless man who had picked it up and fired. The bullet hit a wall. Simpson was able to grab the gun away from the vagrant, Joseph Spataro, who was charged with firing a weapon while intoxicated and trespassing. As for the MSD teacher, he was arrested and charged with failing to safely store a firearm, a second-degree misdemeanor.



  1. Gah….I thought I’d reached saturation point but no, the anger still sizzles. Not at the stupidity but at the ‘normalness’ of the stupidity. If you’re wearing trousers AND a gun belt, of course you’d have to take the belt off when nature calls. 😦

    • Meeka I have even seen guys take off their gun belt to sit comfortably in a chair, then get up later and walk away forgetting they took their gun belt off. It is human nature. Hugs

      • Damn… Yes, it is human nature and so is a total disregard for the well-being of others. Not by everyone, but there’s a name for those who lack empathy and it’s not pretty.
