A hard lockdown was ordered Monday in Homer school buildings after a parent came to school with a holstered handgun, officials said.
Homer Community School District Superintendent Robert Wright said the parent had brought a gun to school on Friday and was armed again when he returned to the school Monday to discuss Friday's incident.
The parent of a student at Lillian Fletcher Elementary School, who Wright declined to identify, came to school Friday to sign in his son,. The man was carrying a gun in a holster. Wright said the parent was questioned by a staff member; the parent asserted "his right to have it there" and he left the school without a confrontation, Wright said.
After that incident the school notified the authorities and the police told the man that though it was his right to have the gun, that it was best not to bring it to school.
However the man was not convinced so the school set up a meeting with him, and guess how he showed up for that meeting:
"And lo and behold, he showed up with his weapon holstered ... it was never out of the holster," Wright said. "And at that point I had to inform him that our protocol is that we go into lockdown just for pure safety of all of our students and staff, and so we went into lockdown at that point."
"They asked him to sit in the front lobby and they went into lockdown," Saxton said. "He left when he heard them go into lockdown."
Wright said the district went under hard lockdown -- he described it as a time when instruction is halted to focus on safety precautions -- for about 10 minutes at 2:15 p.m. A sheriff's deputy was called to the school but the parent left before the deputy arrived.
So while this idiot was walking around trying to feel like a real man, he traumatized an entire school full of children. Good job asshole.
You know what these Ammosexuals seem incapable of understanding is that them having a weapon does NOT make the rest of us feel safe. In fact just the opposite.
The reality is that when a gun shows up on school grounds, the possibility of a child being shot goes from 0 to 100% more likely.
That may not be the intention of the gun owner, but as we know guns can fall and discharge, they can be taken from their owners and used, or the owner may have something suddenly happen which angers them to the point of recklessness.
But the simple fact is, no gun, no gun deaths.
