Raw Story has a story that’s so funny it was almost a tragedy. It’s not the whole reply, but here’s one to mention when you debate your gun nut relative next time:
A prosecutor in Lapeer, Michigan says, вЂњNo harm, no foul,вЂќ after a charter school took the National Rifle AssociationвЂ™s (NRA) advice and hired a armed security guard who promptly left his handgun unattended in a student bathroom.
Chatfield School co-directors Matt Young and Bill Kraly announced last week that they had hired retired Lapeer County SheriffвЂ™s Dept. firearms instructor Clark Arnold as a security guard in response to the December mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.
Wednesday, the school had admitted to The Flint Journal that the retired firearms instructor had made a вЂњmade a breach in security protocolвЂќ and left his unloaded handgun unattended in the school restroom вЂњfor a few moments.вЂќ
вЂњThe school has put additional security procedures in place that follow local law enforcement practices and guidelines,вЂќ a statement from Young said. вЂњAt no time was any student involved in this breach of protocol. We will continue to work on improving school security.вЂќ
