Read the Documents: Deputies Outline Whereabouts in Minutes Following Parkland School Shooting

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

According to WPLG, Science teacher Sean Simpson, 43, told police that he accidentally left the 9mm in a bathroom stall at Deerfield Beach Pier while visiting the beach Sunday.

Simpson told Local 10 he believed carrying a weapon did not violate the school board's rules. Local10 also reported that Simpson was also arrested and charged "with failing to safely store a firearm, a second-degree misdemeanor punishable by a maximum of 60 days in jail", and he posted a cash bond of $250.

Police say Sean Simpson left his gun in a public restroom.

Spataro was charged with firing a weapon while intoxicated and trespassing. I'm not sure. Would I have liked to have had the opportunity?

"Would I have been able to stop this gentleman with a semiautomatic weapon?"

"To leave $67 million on the table is just a travesty", school board member Robin Bartleman said, according to the Herald.

A week after the shooting, Simpson, who said he had been teaching at Marjory Stoneman Douglas for 14 years, gave a lengthy interview to MSNBC vouching for Parkland student activists who had been attacked by right-wing conspiracy theorists after the shooting.

"Some of us are willing to take training if it was offered to be another line of defense", he said. "They're not meant for hunting". As NPR reported, "the lawmakers rejected a statewide ban on assault weapons and limits on high-capacity magazines". He is not now facing any punishment from the school district.

According to the Miami Herald, Simpson said after the Stoneman Douglas shooting that he would be willing to carry a gun on campus if it were allowed.

In the wake of the shootings in Parkland, Florida's legislature approved a $67 million program that provides funding to school districts to train teachers to carry guns.
