Charlotte, NC – It was a very scary situation inside a 3rd Grade classroom at University Meadows Elementary. A gun went off inside a student’s desk, the bullet, missing the 20 or so students in the classroom and hitting a wall.

hahah *sigh* kids will be kids am I right?

Just kidding ;) This kid is going to get into so much shit from his parents and from the school.  Rightfully so, he needs to know that bringing a gun to school isn’t acceptable nowadays.  I’m sure the rest of his life from this point on he will practice proper trigger discipline.  I can imagine his parents will get scrutinzed too considering they are responsible for him obviously.

As you can imagine, I don’t buy the fact that the gun went off on its own.

I just realized that I typed my comment assuming it was a boy that brought the gun to school.  How sexist of me, a little girl is more than capable of doing such a dumb ass thing as well. :P

I was glad to read that all the kids are alright.

Sounds like it’s time to add some Eddie eagle and some Jeff Cooper to the curriculum.

Asheville, North Carolina – Regional Airport police arrested a 23-year-old Ohio man who was carrying a handgun and listening to police radio scanners near the runway around the time President Barack Obama’s flight was leaving Asheville, according to investigators.

Joseph Sean McVey, 23, of Coshocton, Ohio, is charged with going armed in terror of the public, a misdemeanor, said Asheville Regional Airport Police Capt. Kevan Smith.

So showing up to “talk” to the president with a handgun, a fake ass police car, no valid license, and rifle scope dope is only a misdemeanor? I would have assumed it would be been treated a lot more seriously.   The article said McVey was just in the parking lot though, so I guess it wasn’t considered an imminent threat.

I also wonder why he was monitoring police frequencies, and had digital cameras mounted on his front and rear windows.  It would make sense if he works for a security company, because all that equipment would probably be standard in some company cars.

Residents in King were fumed over the weekend after a state of emergency declaration because of bad weather restricted the sale of alcohol and the carrying of firearms in vehicles.

Under North Carolina law, statute 14-288.7 automatically went into effect. And that law which goes into effect when there’s a state of emergency prohibits the transportation, purchase sale and possession of firearms other than on one’s own premises.

HUH? Why?  Any particular reason? such as fear of looting etc..?

“We did find some people on the streets,” May said. “We didn’t take any enforcement actions. We spoke to the people driving and helped them to get to where they needed to be.”

Wow, how noble of them. :roll:

One question on my mind is, how is everyone supposed to find out about this “emergency deceleration”?

My guess is that it’s broadcast on the Radio and on the TV, but since I never listen to the radio and don’t have satellite or cable, how would I find out about it?  In fact, I don’t even currently own a cell phone.  I use the internet for everything.

If there was some snow on the ground and a few fallen trees, and I thought I could make it to where I was going,  I wouldn’t hesitate to go.  Why should I have to consult numerous sources for the O.K.?  If they ever expect these notification systems to even partially work, they need to broadcast the warning across every type of communication device.

That said, no one likes being told what to do.  Especially when it involves having their rights taken away, even temporarily.

I hope that Police Chief Paula May is ready for the:
