I’m sure by now some of you have heard the tale of 27-year-old Christopher Freeman from West Palm Beach, Florida. Freeman is accused of allegedly entering his son’s middle school with a loaded AK-47 pistol Mini Draco in his waistband. In case you’re wondering, this is what an AK-47 pistol Mini Draco looks like.
And here is the gun in action…
How that is considered a pistol is beyond me. And while it’s not supposed to be fully automatic it’s obvious that a large amount of ammunition can be fired in a very short time. When the ‘pistol’ was discovered on Freeman it was said to be fully loaded, with a round in the chamber, and a 30-round magazine.
Freeman reportedly went to the school angry because his son claimed that a teacher had ‘slammed’ the child. When Freeman got to the school a not so very pleasant conversation took place between Freeman and school staff…
“I want to see the guy who slammed my son. I’ve got something for him,” Freeman reportedly said. “You’re going to need more than what you’ve got because of what I’ve got.”
A nearby police officer was said to have noticed the butt of the gun sticking out of Freeman’s pants. The school was placed on lockdown and Freeman was arrested. Freeman claims he forgot the gun was there. While Freeman is said to be limited to the use of a wheelchair, I seriously doubt that he forgot he had the rather large gun that’s supposedly a pistol on him. That’s not even taking into account that Freeman’s threat seems to specify that he had some kind of weapon him.
How can we hope to have non-violent school children when we have reckless gun-toting parents like this?
