    Relax.

    He didn’t say the teacher said that as a part of this incident. I read it as something he’d told some other teacher some other time, as if Pofs’ source was talking about him after this incident, and dropped it in as something he’d heard previously in an unrelated way.

    You don’t know. So until you do, relax.

    Nope. He refers to this incident. Now were we not just talking about bad and misinterpreted news? lol

    Why does it have to be about a weapon and not the chosen location? As in, NOT here. If was talking about my safe it could have been next to my camera lenses.

    Where? And if so, why wasn’t it part of the news coverage?

    I’m not saying Pofs’ guy didn’t hear this. I’m saying he could have heard it last week, last month, last year, whenever.

    Regardless, until he returns and tells us, we don’t know.

    Lol! Why all the spin? You read the same crap I did yet your take is he was referring to another time yet the post clearly said...

    Not sure how you came to your alternate conclusion...

    I had a science teacher teach how to make hydrogen, also when I was in school they taught us about the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. They don't want your kids to know their rights. My kid recently graduated, he wore nothing but gun shirts everyday. Never had a problem and occasionally shoots with a former teacher.

    The schools teach this common core crap and not the Constitution ! WTF ! If you love your kids home school them or at least spend a few hours everyday teaching them what they won't get in school.

    if this were the case wouldn't they have searched his car, produced a gun, and led him out in handcuffs?

    Don’t believe everything a teacher tells you, 85% chance their liberal.
    Who , as a intelligent gun owner, would say I’ve got a gun in my car in a school parking lot ?

    This is what the teacher told me.

    If he did say it, I can see them firing him.

    Plymouth has changed alot in the last 20 years. Great hunting areas are now full of city people in their townhouse communities.

    Face it people it was a stupid comment. Why did the teacher feel the need to say that? It had nothing to do with the conversation . But I full heartedly disagree with the response as well.

    It's all right of the to talk negative about fire arms, but if you you talk positive you get you put on leave.

    Ill advised comment for sure, given today's climate. The comment the whole event makes on modern society, and where it's headed is discouraging.

    I'm guessing if indeed the school was locked down, do to a "medical" emergency, the guy was wishing the Modern Sporting Carbine that is (was?) in his gun safe was instead in front of him on his desk, and the gun and safe being forefront of his mind at that moment whole Freudian slip or whatever thing came into play.

    It’s OK to own a gun.

    I had a history teacher in 7th grade (1970) who was a marine in Vietnam. Quite a character. I remember one day he brought in his scrapbook for a show and tell.... To this day I can still remember him tell us " If you wanted to get Charlie's attention all you had to say was napalm!" I run into him on occasion and still a great guy.

    It is, but frankly a teacher shouldnt be suspended for talking about owning a gun, for chrissakes.

    And maybe most of his class isnt tide pod eaters, but it only takes one or two to ruin it for everyone else.

    Eventually maybe MA will end up like the way they hire prosecutors in some counties in NY.... they literally have a rule in place says that they cannot own
    firearms or have a handgun permit, etc, otherwise they won't get hired- because they don't want them empathizing with gun owners. The whole thing is
    puke worthy...

    I don't know about private, but I can tell you that public schools are off the rails hysterical about virtually everything, especially those evil guns! The whining and hand wringing among many of my whacky colleagues is [puke]producing. Luckily I have some good colleagues who I've taken shooting, and some nice kids!

    Have a friend who is a private school teacher in single-gender school in MA. Great majority of the teachers are very liberal, but for most part students (white, middle to upper class) are the opposite. In the recent past they [the students] have gotten a ton of leeway on amount of sh*t they can get away with saying/doing before there are any disciplinary measures, if any at all. Next time I see him I'll ask what the students' opinions on those "evil guns."
