He also had a semi-auto handgun on his hip.
Probably not as safe as your kid at this school...
Just days after calling its newly hired armed security guard "a tremendous asset to the safety of our students," a Michigan school released a statement saying the retired firearms instructor had caused a "breach in security protocol" by leaving his handgun unattended in the school's bathroom.Thank goodness this could never happen with a loaded weapon because...well, because.
Clark Arnold, formerly of the Lapeer County Sheriff's Office, was hired as a security officer by the Chatfield School in Lapeer following a review of security procedures in the wake of last month's shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary.
The interview was posted one day after Arnold had accidentally left an unloaded gun in the students' bathroom "for a few moments," according to a Chatfield School official.
I wonder if Wayne LaPierre will be available to visit the families of the elementary school students who will, no doubt, be victims of future accidents involving these armed security guards. After all, someone has got to explain to the grieving parents why kids have to be sacrificed on the altar of the 2nd Amendment so that this country's well-regulated militia can continue to sport assault weapons.
Based upon the way him and his organization runs and hides after each tragedy involving guns, I don't think he'll be available.
