The Hill: The Parkland, Fla., teacher who volunteered to carry a gun in school after the deadly Feb. 14 massacre was arrested Sunday for leaving his loaded gun in a public bathroom, the Miami Herald reported Wednesday.

Sean Simpson, a chemistry teacher at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, left his loaded Glock 9mm in the bathroom of a Deerfield Beach Pier on Sunday, the Herald stated, citing a Broward County Sheriff’s Office report. Simpson said he left the gun by mistake and that when he went back for it, Joseph Spataro, described as a vagrant according to the sheriff's report cited by the Herald, had already found it and fired it. Spataro was charged with firing a weapon while intoxicated and trespassing.

Simpson was arrested and charged with failing to safely store a firearm. He posted a $250 cash bond and was released, the Herald reported.

A dumb guy with a gun dealt with by a drunk guy with HIS gun. What could go wrong?

Slap on the hand. Not good enough. Conceal carry permit should be revoked.

And how is that different than letting an unlicensed person or drunk drive your car?  That happens all the time and no one really seems to give a damn if that person runs down a bicyclist or pedestrian, no path to the proper owner seems of interest there.

Just because it involved a gun makes it significant?

And how does that relate to a properly stowed or carried weapon?

nobody gives a damn if someone runs down a bicyclist or pedestrian? Where do you come up with nonsense like that? Anything to deflect from guns

Not really, it has taken relatively direct action by the state legislature to make vehicular homicide more than a violation of Right of Way fines, $179 for killing a bicyclist and still the same for killing a motorcyclist in a ROW violation case (Motorcyclist Organizations continue the fight to include motorcyclists as higher risk persons in vehicle collisions).  If the offender happens to be drunk, they might get lucky and get a DUI add-on on top of the ROW violation.  Some members of the State legislature are rabidly anti-motorcycle, probably even more so than anti-gun, considering that the move to protect all at risk pedestrians, bicyclists and motorcyclist has such a hard time.  To the point that dedicated funding from motorcycle license fees and license fees due to Motorcycle Safety Organizations has been withheld for years, being spent in general funding instead of safety...

Stupid reasons for some rules to not be enforced like Florida and its inability to make Texting a road penalty, too much concern that making it a penalty might impact minorities more than others (true, read Florida legislative history 2018 session).
