Guns in School PSH

Apparently even having a picture w/ a gun is grounds for firing in Wisconsin.
BEAVER DAM, Wis. — A Beaver Dam Middle School teacher is on administrative leave after school officials discovered a photo of her with a gun on Facebook.

Schools superintendent Donald Childs says a concerned staff member brought the photo to the district's attention.

Yep. Some pantywaist gets their knickers in a twist over another teacher having a gun and gets them suspended. Sad.

They're gonna hate me.

Update: The photo in question:

Sorry. That's maybe a "You might want to take that photo down because some panty-waists might get the wrong idea and cause problems". Not a suspension.

UPDATE2: David reports that the WI ACLU is on the case defending her.

Sickens me.

I know a lawyer that has all the research on wrongful termination for mere gun ownership.

Matthew J. Bean

It falls under Employment Law, constitutional violation. He's not in Wisconsin but he can give a Wisconsin lawyer a running start at bringing down bigots like this.

Maybe we should start a petition to introduce federal legislation to have everyone on face book posing with an under age child be forced to register as a sex offender.

Geez, I wonder what happens if you have a blog called "The Armed School Teacher."

And the bigotry continues. From the article it seems like she has given in and pulled the picture instead of telling them to go pound sand.
