Idiot Teacher “Accidentally” Discharges Firearm in CA Classroom

Is it coincidence that the moment we start pushing for teachers and school administrators to carry, suddenly there is an “accidental” shooting in a classroom by a teacher…

I don’t think so. Of course this is exactly the situation that liberals and gun control advocates LIVE for. Guess where it happened? None other than California.

The Washington Post reports:

A teacher who is also a reserve police officer trained in firearm use ‘accidentally’ discharged a gun Tuesday at Seaside High School in Monterey County, Calif., during a class devoted to public safety, school officials said in a statement. A male student was reported to have sustained non-life-threatening injuries.

The weapon, which was not described, was pointed at the ceiling, according to a statement from the school, and debris fell from the ceiling.

Seaside Police Chief Abdul Pridgen told the Monterey County Weekly that a male student was “struck in the neck by ‘debris or fragmentation’ from something overhead.” Pridgen said whatever hit the student was not a bullet.

However, the student’s father, Fermin Gonzales, told KSBW 8 that it was his understanding that fragments from the bullet ricocheted off the ceiling and lodged in the boy’s neck. The father said the teacher told the class before pointing the gun at the ceiling that he was doing so to make sure his gun wasn’t loaded, something that can be determined visually.

If the teacher had been properly trained, this would not have happened. There is a major difference in knowing how to shoot a gun and actually knowing how to handle a gun.
There are no “accidental” shootings, only stupid people.
