  •  It is so ridiculous that they think schools are (0+ / 0-)

    stockpiling ammo because schools, of all places, have a no tolerance policy.  A kid cannot even bring a toy plastic knife to school.  I heard of a case where a teacher was in the  process of moving. And she loaded up her car and went to school . Well she left her guns in her backseat and they were discovered. Teacher was put on probation and I think later fired or disciplines or something strong...for having weapons in her car.  She would move things gradually after school after loading her car..but she was dumb to put her gun collection in her backseat and then drive to school to work there all day with security guards in the parking lot making rounds.  

    Duh how dumb was she for this !!

    •  She wasn't as dumb as you'd think (0+ / 0-)

      Have YOU ever noticed when somebody is moving into/out of your neighborhood?

      Whats a safer place, a home (either old or new) where the neighbors see somebody moving and know they will be leaving a building unoccupied for lengths of time, or a secured, well-guarded lot?

      I'd argue that the firearms were safer in the secured lot if our goal is to ensure that they do not fall into the wrong hands. She wasn't stupid for securing them in the lot per se...

       Her mistake was leaving them visible to passers by, thus making them a target for theft (the bigger issue IMO) or disciplinary action (what sound like actually happened). That, is stupid, and careless. THAT is dumb.  THAT shows a lack of good judgement which needed to be addressed.
