Post Armed School Security Guard Clark Arnold Leaves Gun Unattended In Student Bathroom

Armed School Security Guard Clark Arnold Leaves Gun Unattended In Student Bathroom

Armed School Security Guard Clark Arnold Leaves Gun Unattended In Student Bathroom


The National Rifle Association sparked controversy in the weeks following Wayne LaPierre's call to place armed guards in every school. LaPierre called such a move "the one thing that would keep people safe," but one that may have backfired for a charter school that took his advice to heart.

While President Barack Obama and gun control supporters have expressed skepticism about staffing schools with armed guards, Chatfield School in Lapeer, Mich. -- like LaPierre -- felt that its students and staff would be safer with such security measures.

So school officials announced last week that they had hired retired county sheriff Clark Arnold to serve as Chatfield's armed security officer.

"It's a tremendous asset to the safety of the students," Chatfield School Director Matt Young told WNEM. "Providing a safe environment and an atmosphere where parents are comfortable, students are comfortable, and feel safe so that they can focus on learning."

But just days later, school officials revealed to The Flint Journal that Arnold had "made a breach in security protocol" by leaving his unloaded gun in a school restroom "for a few moments."

This is just plain brilliant.
Of course, this ain't something to consider for the NRA...

In a nation of thousands of guards and thousands of schools a guard left an unloaded gun for a few moments in the bathroom. No one was harmed. Why is this even news?

Because some are talking about putting an armed guard in every school. Chances of stupid **** happening greatly increases.

So if you would not trust a retired county Sheriff who would you trust with a gun?

What does that mean? Did he lay his UNLOADED gun on the counter to take a p*ss? Or did he leave it there and go across the school grounds? Who saw the gun, where was the guard, what were the circumstances? It was unloaded, it's like leaving a stick on the counter.

It doesn't inspire confidence, but if it was indeed unloaded, and he was in the vicinity taking a leak, then no one was ever in real danger...
