Officials horrified after first graders get a hold of gun meant to protect school against mass shootings

Officials horrified after first graders get ahold of gun meant to protect school against mass shootings

Officials at an Ohio elementary school were shocked to learn that a gun stored on campus was found by two first-grade students who picked it up and removed it from its case, The Columbus Dispatch reports.

According to reports, transportation director Vicky Nelson, who was trained as part of the district’s concealed carry program and allowed to have a gun on school grounds, left her firearm in an unlocked case as she went to the restroom. Also in the office was her grandson and the daughter of a co-worker, who were both first graders. When she returned from the restroom, she saw that the gun had been taken out of its case and left on the desk.

“I’m assuming that the child picked up the gun from behind the desk and had been holding it,” Superintendent Dan Freund said.

Revealed: Republican lawmaker aided group training young men for ‘biblical warfare’

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/aug/13/matt-shea-biblical-war-washington-team-rugged

The Republican politician Matt Shea connected close allies with a group offering training to young men in “biblical warfare” that includes how to use knives, pistols and rifles, with lessons based in part on the teachings of a Georgia-based neo-Confederate pastor, emails obtained by the Guardian reveal.

Shea, who is an elected Washington state representative, later made videos in support of the group, and appeared alongside them at a gathering at a religious community in remote eastern Washington. He also paid the founder of the group money from his campaign fund in 2018.

In his email to Shea, however, Caughran offers a different description, saying that the group exists “to provide patriotic and biblical training on war for young men”.

Caughran also wrote: “There will be scenarios where every participant will have to fight against one of the most barbaric enemies that are invading our country, Muslims terrorists (sic)”.

In his email to Shea, Caughran goes on to list weapons training as part of the event for attendees. The training will “show them how to work better as a team, both in achieving physically demanding tasks and on the battlefield. Those who attend will learn combatives, the use of a knife in defense, close quarters shooting with rifle and pistol and how to work effectively in teams of 2, 3 and 4.”

In 2018, representative Shea was revealed to have distributed a document entitled “Biblical Basis for War”, which appeared to lay out a plan for a theocratic takeover, including the instruction to “kill all males”. Shea denied this interpretation of the document, saying instead that the material was notes for a sermon.

Last May, the Guardian revealed that at the 2018 God and Country event, Shea warned of civil unrest while Robertson urged the audience to prepare for civil war.

Proud Boys plan to terrorize Portland behind phony rubric of rally protesting far-left terrorism

https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2019/8/12/1878401/-Proud-Boys-plan-to-terrorize-Portland-behind-phony-rubric-of-rally-protesting-far-left-terrorism

The Proud Boys are coming to Portland, Oregon, this Saturday, and they’re planning on bringing the heavy-duty violence.

In one video he posted online, Biggs can be seen swinging around a Trump-themed baseball bat, promising to bring it with him to Portland, where it will be “put to good use.” And that’s just a sampling.

When the rally was first announced, Biggs broadcast a video to Periscope, while wearing a shirt with the words “Training to Throw Communists Out of Helicopters”—a variation on the popular “Pinochet Did Nothing Wrong” T-shirts the Proud Boys sell on their website—in which he launched into a verbally violent eruption at his antifa critics.

“You’re not gonna feel safe when you go out in public,” he warned. “Every time you turn your shoulder or your head, you look over, you’re always gonna feel like myself or someone else is gonna be there looking, because that’s what we’re going to do. You’re scum, you’re filth, you’re anti-American socialist fucking pricks, and I’m not gonna let that shit happen in this country.”
