    This teacher is truly a hero. His/her quick thinking and attention to surroundings probably saved multiple lives that day. Nicely done.

    With all these guns being confiscated at high schools, where is the NRA when you need them? Shouldn’t the NRA be defending their “god-given right to own and bear arms”? Shouldn’t the NRA be declaring this an outrage that guns are being taken away from American citizens, who have a Constitutional right to have weapons?

    Oh, wait, that’s right, they only defend the right of FAR RIGHT conservative rural people to have guns – I almost forgot! Isn’t that what the conceal carry training and license is for – to weed out liberals, lefties and blacks from conceal carry? When all the classes and trainers are rednecks in camouflage from the sticks, it sure discourages certain people to apply, I’m certain!

    KSDK should try checking the security at this school. Just kidding. Seems to me when “A teacher took the gun away and found another gun in the backpack as well.” there are some real security issues that need to be investigated. How can a student have a gun on school grounds and get away with it until he pulls it out to use? How many backpacks are packing on a given day anyway? 2, 3, 4, 5……? 1 is too many.
