On Tuesday, Bearing Arms reported on the negligence of a school resource officer and a Michigan sheriff and how their irresponsibility with firearms is influencing the debate on whether or not school teachers should be allowed to carry on the job. Now a California teacher, who is also a reserve police officer, is in trouble after bringing a firearm to school and accidentally firing it. One student was injured.
Here’s more on the story from The Washington Post:
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. 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.
