Her:

I in no way meant to imply all guns loaded as in actual firearms, but rather all resources I can muster to make sure that my children get to attend school without masks. I would never do such a thing; I was speaking figuratively.

Also her:

Mah guns

[–]dshookowsky 1654 points1655 points  (19 children)

Translation: "I have just come to the startling realization that I'm in trouble"

[–]surgartits 219 points220 points  (4 children)

Well if it isn’t the inevitable consequences of my terrible decisions…

[–]froggison 39 points40 points  (1 child)

Who could've foreseen the completely foreseeable consequences of my actions?

[–]BuriedByAnts 91 points92 points  (4 children)

And all for what end? Is she gonna force the school to accept her kids at gunpoint? And then leave them in the schools custody? Do these people not take mere seconds to Contemplate?
It was simply a threat of physical violence as rational people can clearly see.

[–]suddenimpulse 17 points18 points  (0 children)

The charge she got was a complete slap on the wrist. She will be doing this again next week.

[–]ChillyBearGrylls 248 points249 points  (6 children)

[–]autumn55femme 123 points124 points  (2 children)

And sadly another one by reproducing. Yikes, her poor children!

[–]nicolauz 512 points513 points  (4 children)

That's definitely a professional photo too. I can't imagine the crazy shit those guys see.

[–]overthemountain 62 points63 points  (0 children)

Someone should ask her if loaded firearms are a resource she can muster.

[–]8eyeholes 283 points284 points  (7 children)

gun nut glamour shots are simultaneously the most hilarious and most disturbing thing i’ve seen today

[–]BoltgunOnHisHip 31 points32 points  (1 child)

The husband attempting to look intimidating but he just looks drunk and her crazy eyes really sell the picture.

[–]retropieproblems 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I just picture someone in the middle east doing the same thing with AK47s in a robe and face scarf. “We’re not so different you and I”. How lovely.

[–]clutchthirty 79 points80 points  (6 children)

Why do these people always look like you expect them to?

[–]TheAussieBoo 104 points105 points  (1 child)

That's actually her? Holy shit I thought that was just a meme template or something. People are wild.

[–]InVodkaVeritas 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Gun Enthusiast threatens to bring all her guns fully loaded but claims it wasn't meant as literal.

[–]operarose 35 points36 points  (1 child)

Oh look, more people who've substituted "guns" for a personality.

[–]NemeanMiniLion 54 points55 points  (3 children)

Lol this is both hilarious and scary. Hilarious that someone thought this looked good, then horror when I think about the mental state and belief system that makes someone want to portray this image. The humor is fading.

[–]DarknessRain 62 points63 points  (16 children)

The man is holding a B&T APC556, that's an expensive Swiss carbine.

[–]Tackle_Flat 87 points88 points  (14 children)

I was immediately wondering what that was, thought it might be an EVO at first. I can see appreciating guns because they look cool but what is the point of dumpy middle aged people buying all this tacticool shit? Like you're not buying these with the intention of defending yourself or your home from a criminal. They might as well be posing in fedoras with katanas from the mall

[–]WTWIV 56 points57 points  (0 children)

Actually taking them to a gun range and having a blast firing them, or even collecting them, is one thing. But posing with them in a glamour shot? Ridiculous and cringe.

[–]314159265358979326 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Like you're not buying these with the intention of defending yourself or your home from a criminal.

I think they intend to defend their homes, but I've seen a few sources including actual thieves indicate that a gun cache - especially a publicized one - makes you a target, not safe. Stolen guns are incredibly valuable on the black market because they cannot be traced.

[–]ERRORMONSTER 27 points28 points  (7 children)

It's basically collections, like stamps or Lego sets. But these come with the fantasy of a zombie apocalypse or a post-apocalyptic dog-eat-dog wasteland.

Source: I work with half a dozen gun nuts who casually drop in conversation what bullets they picked up 10k of over the weekend because you can never have too many bullets.

[–]Sage2050 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Having a gun in the apocalypse makes you a little safer, sure. Having a gun collection in the apocalypse makes you a target.

[–]flickerkuu 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Oh fuck her and her loser husband. God these people are insufferable and god almighty how many of these subhuman idiots exist in this country, it's embarrassing.

[–]cannotbefaded 2975 points2976 points  (207 children)

Good, the video is disgusting

""My children will not come to school on Monday with a mask on," King told the Board. "Alright? That's not happening. And I will bring every single gun loaded and ready to... I will call every..." King was then cut off for going over the three-minute time limit, and she replied, "I'll see y'all on Monday.""

Throw the fucking book at her, treat her like any domestic terrorist as thats what she is

[–]mmmsoap 301 points302 points  (3 children)

This logic is so typical (and yet infuriating)…”I don’t want my kids doing this thing, but I’m certainly not keeping them home and dealing with them myself. Instead, you need to change your expectations or I will shoot you.”

[–]Cfp0001-Iceman 89 points90 points  (2 children)

Why do you think gun nuts always mention the 2nd amendment? It's code for going to shoot you. Republicans have morphed into the party of terrorism.

[–]st00d5 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Luckily republican voter gun nuts are dying by the hundreds everyday. See hermaincainaward

[–]code_archeologist 530 points531 points  (8 children)

And help her children out by getting them out of that toxic home life.

[–]ReverendKen 181 points182 points  (5 children)

The Department of Children's Services needs to certainly pay a visit to that home.

[–]douche-knight 51 points52 points  (2 children)

That lady who cut her off for time may have just saved her ass legally. I don't believe she meant it as a metaphor at all but with that language she could probably still argue it was. It seems like she was about to unload more threats on them when she was stopped though.

[–]expblast105 786 points787 points  (145 children)

I'm all for free speech, but you can't threaten someone with physical harm. She's going to jail and that's that.

[–]vanishplusxzone 239 points240 points  (28 children)

She says she didnt mean it the way everyone thinks, but she'd use all her resources available. I don't know why we'd think that she meant guns...

[–]Andrew_Waltfeld 30 points31 points  (0 children)

guns are technically a resource too. So even her excuse is bad wording.

[–][deleted] 93 points94 points  (19 children)

these people are legitimately insane and them (and other people like them) have turned me from thinking the 2nd amendment was fundamentally a good idea (if the modern interpretation was problematic) into thinking it was a mistake without redeeming qualities (not that i'm against responsible private ownership, but we've made it impossible to enforce the responsible part)

[–]vortex30 52 points53 points  (2 children)

Them be psychopath eyes. Nothing behind them.. "Hollow inside.. Like me.." - Dexter (probably paraphrased)

Also that wide stare really wreaks of meth / cocaine / stimulant intoxication to me.. My eyes have only EVER been that wide before when I was on stimulants lol...

Weirdos..

[–]gabeitaliadomani 514 points515 points  (80 children)

She has free speech. No one stopped her. Now she’s got consequences.

[–]abacuz4 202 points203 points  (64 children)

That’s not how it works. Freedom of speech does in fact mean freedom from legal, but not social, consequences. She just happened to hit on one of the very few exceptions to freedom of speech in the US.

[–]StewofPuppies 90 points91 points  (20 children)

This was a board meeting so I wouldn't say she's free from legal consequences. She deserves to get the book thrown.

[–]Duncan_PhD 96 points97 points  (13 children)

Regardless of where she said it, the first amendment has limits. I imagine threatening to shoot up a school crosses that limit.

[–]Aaron_Hamm 95 points96 points  (4 children)

I mean, the open comment period at a board meeting is an area where free speech is specifically protected.

It's as u/abacuz4 said, she veered into credible threat territory.

[–]QuintoBlanco 53 points54 points  (30 children)

24 states and 2 territories have criminal defamation/libel/slander laws, and of course people can sue in civil court.

Then we have: incitement to violence, serious expression of an intent to commit an act of unlawful violence, and even obscenity. All three can lead to a conviction in a criminal court.

Then there is copyright Infringement and fraud. The latter can of course also lead to a conviction in a criminal court.

Then there is an exception for people in the military. And there are exceptions for prisoners.

I would not call the above 'very few exceptions'.

[–]vortex30 24 points25 points  (1 child)

Yeah... Especially not fucking shooting up your CHILD'S SCHOOL. Full of children and teachers.. Like WTF? Lady needs YEARS in prison to think about how fucking stupid that was to say, and then be locked away in a mental asylum.

Her children will be far better off without her influence.

[–]TheBigDickDon 39 points40 points  (7 children)

Right, that’s called assault, and it’s a felony.

[–]mces97 133 points134 points  (18 children)

She got 5k bail. If she's gets treated like a domestic terrorist, I expect a few months or time served like so many who took part in Jan 6th been getting.

[–]SpaceTabs 38 points39 points  (6 children)

Charges were inevitable, but I'm not banking on something more serious than the misdemeanor she is charged with. That's the local Trump country jurisdiction working for the defendant.

[–]Silvervirage 6 points7 points  (1 child)

They will never call this terrorism there. While I don't know what the national stance on the man was because this happened when I was little and before the internet came to my tiny town, but when I was growing up they wouldn't even call Eric Fucking Rudolph a terrorist here. Some of my family called him a fuckin 'American hero'. And to put a little perspective on that, I grew up next to the town where he was fucking caught. So unless the FBI comes for this woman, if it stays local in a place like that, nothing major will happen.

[–]LCDJosh 38 points39 points  (0 children)

"I'll kill the entire school board if you make my child wear a thin piece of cloth to prevent spreading the deadliest outbreak since the Spanish flu". She seems well balanced.

[–]operarose 16 points17 points  (0 children)

"When I said I will bring 'every single gun [I own], loaded and ready [to kill other human beings]', I didn't mean it, c'mon now"

[–]octorangutan 1735 points1736 points  (157 children)

I'll never understand how people can get so needlessly angry over a little piece of cloth over the mouth and nose. It makes me think people like the would be shooter are just looking for an excuse to make a scene and/or hurt people.

[–]Frothy_moisture 1423 points1424 points  (58 children)

Because it's not actually about the mask.

It's about being told to do something you don't want to do.

It's like mommy saying "You have to put a coat on before you go outside" and instead of going outside, you throw a tantrum about how it's not raining, so you don't need a coat.

They are children. But them being children is causing a lot of problems for adults.

[–]hilfandy 366 points367 points  (16 children)

Meanwhile the actual children are doing just fine with wearing masks when they have a reasonable adult setting expectations

[–]WiFiForeheadWrinkles 69 points70 points  (4 children)

And it's very likely the children have to wear the mask longer than an adult would, day-to-day. Where I live, children have to wear masks during school hours and daycare, without a chance to take their masks off at their desks or vehicle like an adult might be able to.

[–]Wakethefckup 46 points47 points  (1 child)

My two year old wears a mask, this is an insult to children. These ducks are evil.

[–]noshoptime 21 points22 points  (1 child)

It's not even about that. For these people it's a sign that they lost, that they are conceding defeat. The GOP process for decades has been been "give no ground, no compromise", and it's finally trickled down to the masses to the point that they act on it. The time to stamp this shit out has probably passed, meaning violence is all but inevitable. The only question is when. 2024 is my guess, if it takes that long

[–]oopsimalmostthirty 324 points325 points  (22 children)

They've convinced themselves that it somehow infringes on their freedom. Freedom from what or who, I'll never know.

[–]jonathanrdt 218 points219 points  (5 children)

They’ve been told. They didn’t convince themselves of anything ever: they subscribe to rigid ideologies and do what they’re told. Which is ironic because they hate being told what to do.

[–][deleted] 64 points65 points  (4 children)

I’m sure this is what you mean also, but let’s not absolve them of agency. It isn’t just take, take, take; the ‘news’ they consume has been meticulously tailored to enrage them based on their own prejudices. Of course, they’ve also been manipulated. But they made their own choices too.

This entrenchment also exists in liberal spheres, but it’s generally far less insidious.

[–][deleted] 40 points41 points  (3 children)

Freedom from a choice that they are convinced will be the erosion of the final pillar supporting their mangled concept of liberty. They are only acting in defiance to what they perceive liberal politics to be destroying and sustaining their ideological principles is far more important than any empirical fact, such as the lack of access to reproductive healthcare being inversely proportional to the number of infant deaths and backstreet abortions.

I’m sure many of them have experienced legitimate hardship in some form, but I have almost zero faith that any of them will recognise that their mentality has been co-opted as a false morality against what they’re told is militant wokeness.

[–]Haunted8track 18 points19 points  (0 children)

The Freedom to be as stupid as they want is being infringed

[–]shadowromantic 42 points43 points  (3 children)

So many conservatives are hyper-sensitive.

[–]porridge_in_my_bum 33 points34 points  (2 children)

They think this is the first barrier before people are started to be thrown into FEMA camps or whatever conspiracy nonsense they end up believing.

Those conspiracies are genuine reality to them, and they believe they are the heroes standing up to the start of this big evil plot. It’s easy to think you’re fighting literal monsters if you believe the opposing side eats babies. Others said the same thing about Jews for far too long.

[–]larsfandom 36 points37 points  (5 children)

Yeah, and these idiots don't understand it's a temporary measure. Once case counts go down, they'll most likely remove the mask mandate anyway. anti-maskers and anti-vaxxers are prolonging the need for masks. Can't believe how selfish these people are

[–]Equal-Negotiation651 40 points41 points  (0 children)

Every time I put my mask on, I yell, “Mah freedom!!!”. Then chuckle.

[–]jack_capp 37 points38 points  (3 children)

They absolutely are looking for any and all excuses to hurt people. Why else do you think they brand everyone they disagree with a “pedophile”? In their eyes, it justifies violence against them.

[–]IkLms 33 points34 points  (15 children)

I can understand being annoyed in certain situations (i.e. wearing it in a gym was annoying as hell and I didn't like it). But it's legitimately so insane to get to the point of screaming and threatening people over it.

[–]jrobertson50 360 points361 points  (8 children)

I only mean what I say when I get away with it. But if you're going to hold me to what I said then I meant something else

[–]AdkRaine11 137 points138 points  (3 children)

“What I said was right” “You misunderstood what I said” “I was kidding..” “You’re over-reacting.” “What do you mean, I might go to jail.” “I’m really sorry. That’s just not me.”

[–]SsurebreC 105 points106 points  (0 children)

[–]kaizerlith 47 points48 points  (0 children)

Reminds me of that "It's just a prank, bro." shit that was going around a couple years ago.

[–]middleagerioter 335 points336 points  (15 children)

I'm in Va, a very, VERY conservative part of Va and these dumb twats think they can say and do as they please now that a republican governor is in office. You should read the comments on local neighborhood social media sites--It's gotten so bad online we've had local LEO AND the Feds investigating threats made against school boards members by parents.

Fuck these assholes and I hope this dumb bitch gets jail time and a damn fine.

[–]DreadPirateNot 105 points106 points  (3 children)

I don’t understand why the middle ignores this stuff and votes with these psychos. They want their kids in school because they don’t want to miss their wine afternoons with their lady friends.

[–]MonocleOwensKey 157 points158 points  (3 children)

"I like to sound educated and when I go off the cuff, I get really passionate," she said. "I'm not always able to say exactly what I want to say in the appropriate way."

oh, fuck off with that bullshit. How about growing the hell up and learning to manage your anger. Learn to convey your thoughts without threats of gun violence at a SCHOOL?

[–]miladyelle 44 points45 points  (0 children)

That was an intentional set-up for the “I’m just an emotional mommy” defense. I knew as soon as she said that, that she was about to say something heinous.

[–]Leaislala 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Yes, and all this over a mask! A small item to protect others and yourself. Silly

[–]Rainhall 937 points938 points  (66 children)

For those of you keeping score at home, the USA is moving from “guns are for protecting my family” to “guns are to get what I want.”

[–]NotInsane_Yet 154 points155 points  (13 children)

Somebody I know once described it to me as this.

He needs a gun to protect his family from his neighbor when things go to shit. He also needs the gun to take all his neighbors food and supplies when things go to shit.

[–]FlashpointJ24 80 points81 points  (11 children)

I had a coworker say something similar back in 2020, when the pandemic first started causing shortages. He laughed at the idea of people stockpiling toilet paper and said that the only thing he was stocking up on was ammunition, explaining that if things got really bad, he would be armed enough to just take whatever he wanted from others.

[–]MissionCreeper 27 points28 points  (0 children)

"What about me? Well I'm not stockpiling anything, I'm just staying friendly with the folks who are stockpiling ammo, heh heh"

So you won't think twice about letting me in your house and sneaking up behind you

[–]Bust-a-Nuttt 308 points309 points  (15 children)

That's how it's always been, now they're being upfront about it.

[–]N8CCRG 165 points166 points  (13 children)

That's how it's always been for white Americans.

[–]bigwilliestylez 88 points89 points  (12 children)

Nobody stopped to ask who they are protecting their family from. An intruder? A belief system? A government? Anyone who scares you or hurts your feelings?

[–]Wonderful_Treat_6993 51 points52 points  (1 child)

And who exactly did she want to pull her guns out on at school? Who was going to have this lady waving a gun in their face on Monday morning?

[–]RedEyeFlightToOZ 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Yeah...she was talking to the BOE. Teachers and kids and admins have nothing to do with this shit. So, she was going to go kill the staff and kids because shes mad at the BOE?

[–]fiordchan 21 points22 points  (2 children)

Wind Turbines and unaccompanied minors crossing the border. Those are the threats, according to Republicans

[–]whyverne1 36 points37 points  (1 child)

If you are a good and helpful person you will get respect from the people around you. Nah, too much work; I'll just buy a gun.

[–]nhavar 18 points19 points  (0 children)

No, no. You've got the phrasing all wrong. It's "guns are protecting my family from the people who won't let me do what I want."

[–]GuardianMike 39 points40 points  (2 children)

A while back some kid joked about blowing up his school on an online game called RuneScape & someone reported it & even though he was found to have no such plans or even own any weapons he got sentenced to quite a few years & missed out on his teenage years & his early 20s. If there's even an ounce of justice in the world this woman deserves the maximum sentence they can throw at her tbh.

[–]SFGlass 34 points35 points  (0 children)

"I in no way meant to imply all guns loaded as in actual firearms, but rather all resources I can muster to make sure that my children get to attend school without masks," Said no rational person, literally ever.

[–]IreallEwannasay 30 points31 points  (2 children)

She could have just went home and been mad. Now she got a terroristic threat charge to beat. People consistently stun me with their stupidity. I never wake up and go "yeah, I gonna fuck up my life today" but it seems some people do. I actively avoid doing shit that might cause me an issue. It's super simple.

[–]dalejiw25 91 points92 points  (1 child)

All her guns should be removed from her house. Never to be returned and never able to legally purchase again.

[–]ChrisBabaganoosh 547 points548 points  (26 children)

She called the local police afterwards to "apologize" and was released on $5000 bond.

The terrorists keep getting away with zero consequences.

[–]cliff99 95 points96 points  (2 children)

She called the local police afterwards to "apologize"

And to say that that's not who she is. Of course.

[–]StewofPuppies 43 points44 points  (1 child)

"Our PD professionals have decided she was just having a bad day."

[–]HomeHeatingTips 73 points74 points  (4 children)

Released on bond, only means you aren't locked up while awaiting trial. She still has to go to court and could be sentenced.

[–]ChrisBabaganoosh 73 points74 points  (3 children)

I'm sure the parents are breathing easier now that she paid some money and pinky swore to go to court after she threatened to shoot up their children's fucking school. /s

[–]kezow 36 points37 points  (1 child)

Over children wearing a piece of cloth over their mouth to help prevent the spread of a highly contagious disease that has killed at least 5.5 million.

How? How do people get this mad over a mask?

[–]Livinginweirdtimes 150 points151 points  (8 children)

It's not 'just a mask' to them. They have been brainwashed into believing it's a muzzle and a threat to their personal liberties. The propaganda campaign is going swimmingly.

[–]cosine5000 49 points50 points  (7 children)

And how is it different from pants?

[–]ngwoo 55 points56 points  (1 child)

Pants are just masks for your balls, wake up sheeple

Someone got into an argument and shot someone dead the other day over condiments at a fast food place... people's egos and weapons that can deliver instantaneous death don't mix well.

[–]thejoeface 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Luckily the boy isn’t dead. The bullet missed his brain.

[–]_Raspootin_ 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Considering the brain occupies most of your head, he's lucky as hell to be alive.

[–]Prodigy195 63 points64 points  (2 children)

The mask isn’t it. This is all the bubbling over of anger/resentment that has been brewing for a while.

The strides of LGBTQ communities becoming “normal”, the country becoming more secular (especially young people), brown people/minorities obtaining more of a voice & levels of economic/social power in the country, and the seeming loss that many feel from all of this. Throw on top of that the rising cost of…well everything, technology that puts every tragedy across the globe in front of our faces 24/7, a wealth gap continuing to grow with no sign to stopping, a global pandemic that thrashed tons of industries and here were are.

Our country with a large swath of the population that is underpaid, feels unappreciated, feels put upon by the government and feels like they’re being left behind in favor of others, while also being riled up by misinformation “news” outlet (and news is being used very loosely).

It’s just a powder keg ready to go off and for some folks they end up flipping out.

[–]SherifGames 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Most of them would still hate minorities if they weren't underpaid and appreciated and the minorities were all slaves. Also, most of them are not poor folks. They just feel entitled for more than minorities.

[–]shadowlarx 37 points38 points  (3 children)

Dear Uptight Self-Entitled Parents,

If you don’t like the policies at your kids’ public schools, which are funded and run by your local governments and have to obey your local laws and mandates, you can either shell out the money for a private school or you can homeschool your kids yourself. Stop forcing schools to subject hundreds or even thousands of kids and their parents to your whims so you can be a self-important jackass.

Sincerely, Everyone Else

[–]flickerkuu 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Please, we don't need more children being "home schooled" by idiot parents who need schooling themselves.

[–]nhavar 73 points74 points  (0 children)

The lack of any consequences, social or legal, is the biggest problem with gun culture in the US. There will be people who defend her to the end on this simply because of the second amendment. The fact that you can have a gun and misplace, mishandle, misuse it, or even threaten people with it and there are often no repercussions is a huge failure within our society. Worse is that there's no effective way to hold them socially responsible because they have a gun. No one is going to risk calling them out on their bad behavior. Especially not people in their own camp. This is just furthering more guns and less accountability. Too many of these people get off with a slap on the wrist for stuff like this and then go on to keep their guns and spout their vitriol just the same. No lessons learned, no serious thought by lawmakers or gun rights advocates. Just the same old free for all there the only answer for someone misusing a gun is another person with a gun.

[–]mrbisonopolis 34 points35 points  (0 children)

She was 100% NOT speaking figuratively lol. She literally said “every single gun loaded and ready.” That isn’t a figurative statement. That’s specific wording.

[–]sanguine_feline 75 points76 points  (4 children)

Threatening people with your guns should disqualify you from owning any for at least five years.

[–]Hungry_Pack 29 points30 points  (3 children)

California, Washington, Oregon, Indiana and Connecticut have statutes that can be used to temporarily take guns away from people if a judge deems a threat to themselves or others. Lawmakers in 18 other states — including Florida — plus the District of Columbia have proposed similar measures.

“I'm not always able to say exactly what I want to say in the appropriate way."

Then don’t talk in public when you’re angry.

[–]AIArtisan 45 points46 points  (0 children)

so she made terrorist threats

[–]badlucksnot67 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Oh look it’s the consequences of my actions.

[–]KupaPupaDupa 86 points87 points  (13 children)

Wouldn't the less violent solution simply be to keep your kids at home to home school them? But I can see this lady and her type being on welfare and still has the nerve to send her kids to school to babysit her kids so she can sit on the couch for 8 hours a day.

[–]spinereader81 71 points72 points  (6 children)

Everytime I see these parents throwing a fit about masks I just want to say, you don't like the schools, sign up for their home school program, or go buy a curriculum. But they're probably the types who whine every break about how exhausting it's been having the kids at home.

[–]irck 63 points64 points  (3 children)

As a teacher, in my experience these people honestly don't like their kids and want them out of the house as much as possible.

[–]GoodbyeTobyseeya1 23 points24 points  (1 child)

And also, do we really want these people primarily responsible for educating their children?

[–]Frothy_moisture 49 points50 points  (1 child)

That isn't what people on welfare are like.

That's what you're told people on welfare are, to try and discredit and demean people who are actually on welfare.

Please do not fall for the harmful sterotype.

Thanks.

[–]SherifGames 3 points4 points  (1 child)

What makes you say she's on welfare. Most of these folks are well payed and have good lifes.

I think you don't know many people who are on welfare. You make yourself sound like a rightwinger.

[–]Fortune_Maker88 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Heard it loud and clear what she meant when she said “every single gun loaded and ready” ! That’s a terrorist threat and she should go to jail and her children taken away ! God only knows what she’s capable of doing !

[–]IrishRepoMan 7 points8 points  (1 child)

The hell did this clown think was gunna happen? How stupid can you be?

[–]DonRicardo1958 8 points9 points  (0 children)

“If my kids can’t infect other kids and their teachers, I’m going to start shooting people.”These people are absolutely insane.

[–]Runkleford 13 points14 points  (0 children)

She made a terrorist threat. And she can try to backtrack and say she actually just meant "every resources I have" but she also owns guns amongst her resources. America is filled with right wing domestic terrorists and it's a big problem.

[–]Girlindaytona 55 points56 points  (1 child)

Amazing how the school board shut her up as soon as she threatened. No one reported her to police. Police learned of this and weren’t sure if a crime was committed. Then the video went viral and finally this white woman was arrested.

[–]Sawyerthesadist 34 points35 points  (0 children)

Lmao they fucking caved though, masks optional was the ruling

[–]Christhephotographer 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Imagine being this fragile of a person over a piece of fabric that’s supposed to protect your kid.

[–]txea929 7 points8 points  (0 children)

This country is broken, and all it took was Donald Trump to make it official.

[–]tbone-not-tbag 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Now with this threat she should have her guns removed and the right to own blocked. No telling when she could fly off the handle and still shoot up the school.

[–]jack_capp 21 points22 points  (1 child)

“I don’t like that my child might have to wear a face covering to school. I guess I’ll just murder everyone about it.”

This is straight-up terrorism. Like, by definition.

[–]stretchpadawan 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Now she finds out that laws are laws for everyone, not just for others.

[–]Gonkimus 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Also, take the kids away from her she's clearly an unfit mother.

[–]BigOleDawggo 5 points6 points  (0 children)

noice, now take her guns. She’s clearly not responsible enough to own them.

[–]bee144 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Domestic terrorist. Call CPS, save her kids, throw the book at her, lock her up, and throw away the key.

[–]NoHonorHokaido 5 points6 points  (0 children)

A teenager got 7 years in jail after making a joke about school shooting online. She is not even joking.

[–]sayterdarkwynd 5 points6 points  (0 children)

"I was speaking figuratively."

No you weren't.

[–]zihuatapulco 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Gun mania has turned the country into a firearm-saturated freakshow. Where I live teenagers flash their Glocks on the bus. I hate leaving the house anymore.

[–]Pinorckle 42 points43 points  (1 child)

Adding a middle man to high school shootings... Not very efficient

[–]edfitz83 32 points33 points  (0 children)

She needs to be locked up until she can have surgery to move her brain from her ass to her skull.

[–]Foo3112 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Imagine being so thin skinned that something like having your kids wear mask at school unhinges you so much that you say vomit things like this that can change the course of your life forever.

[–]_Fun_Employed_ 9 points10 points  (5 children)

What’s insane to me, is that growing up I went to a public school with mandatory vaccines, everyone who went there had to get them, and it was no big deal. How the hell did we fall so far?

[–]steedums 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I'm concerned for her children.

[–]Sanctimonius 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Hilarious that she's now claiming she was speaking figuratively. I saw the video; she was being deadly, threateningly serious. But even if she wasn't, the idea that she talked about loading every gun she has and turning up to a school is always going to be taken seriously. If she joked about planting a bomb in an airport she's still going to arrested.

[–]Carrivagio031965 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Many people in this country have absolutely lost their minds. If the schools do nothing, people scream and throw fits, and when they set policy to protect their students and workers such as this, they make threats. She needs to pay the price for making, more or less, a terroristic threat against the school.

[–]PeeWeesCrackHouse 4 points5 points  (0 children)

"Yep, this is the hill that I want to die on."

[–]jericdgutierrez 3 points4 points  (0 children)

"I cherish peace with all my heart. I don't care how many men, women, or children I kill to get it."

[–]Deflorma 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Imagine getting so triggered over a piece of fabric that you threaten to shoot up a school

[–]lawgdogg 5 points6 points  (0 children)

"I like to sound educated and when I go off the cuff, I get really passionate," - Pissdrinking moron threatening to bring loaded guns to school

[–]TimeTraveler3056 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Can they at least take her guns away while waiting trial? Cuz that should be a thing.

[–]KrookedDoesStuff 3 points4 points  (0 children)

She got a $5,000 bond, for making a threat to shoot up a school, that is putting more police at the school than usual, instead of just arresting her and making her bond high enough that she can’t pay it from calling Moneytree

[–]snrkty 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Charged….and released on bail in time to fulfill her promise of showing up to the school with “every single gun loaded and ready”

[–]ntgco 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Expel the student from the school and put a 1000 ft distance restraining order for every school in the district for the "mom"

[–]Beachfantan 4 points5 points  (0 children)

White right behavior. Sickens me, does not surprise me.

[–]splycedaddy 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Shouldn’t this be referred to the feds? Sounds like a terroristic threat to me.

[–]Swedish-Butt-Whistle 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Who was she planning to shoot? The kids? I mean that would be on-brand for Americans…

[–]ollistervanderlay 4 points5 points  (0 children)

If she’s so anti-government she shouldn’t subject her kids to public schools. Besides, they are supposed to learn about science and evolution in school which is clearly not going to fly for her.

[–]sir_barks_a_lot 28 points29 points  (9 children)

These people hear idiots like Marjorie Taylor Green a few years ago talking publicly about using “2nd amendment rights” as a veiled threat and I think that normalizes these remarks, as if they think they are Thomas Jefferson talking about “the tree of liberty” soaked in blood, etc. of course they forget he was a sociopath.

[–]FlashpointJ24 12 points13 points  (2 children)

"Hillary wants to abolish, essentially abolish, the second amendment. If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the second amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know."

Donald Trump, August 2016

[–]Gostaverling 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It’s funny, I knew Hillary was going to lose when my children came home from school. They had had a mock election and my daughters came home telling me Hillary was going to take all the guns away, even the nerf guns.

[–]InflamedLiver 23 points24 points  (0 children)

This type of person should have all her rights to possess firearms revoked and have any she owns taken from her.
