Not The Onion. AR-15 stolen from school in Tenn

RED BOILING SPRINGS, Tenn. (WTVF) — School administrators in Macon County said they are still investigating how two former students broke into a gun safe to steal an AR-15 from a school resource officer's office.

Officials say the two suspects, Adam Cisneros and Lee Clark, entered the Red Boiling Springs School overnight, crawled through a window in the School Resource Officer's office and then managed to breach a gun safe to steal the AR-15 and two bulletproof vests. The theft was discovered Thursday morning.


The gun and vests were found buried behind Lee's home.
...

But how did an AR-15 end up inside of a school? Boles said it is allowed under a Macon County Sheriff's Department policy that allows School Resource Officers to bring personal guns on to campus along with their service weapon.


"They are there for the protection of our students, and if that's how the sheriff's department feels is necessary for that, then yes, I am supportive of their policy. But we do no make those policies," Boles explained.

I've seen them cracked open with probes, magnets and paperclips in under 5 seconds on YouTube. Some of the biometrics have cheap locks as bypasses which makes them easy targets for anyone with a pick kit.

But usually five year olds can’t get past these locks. A teen will be able get a gun anywhere in this country as long as they have the cash.

We got the alert on our phones the other day. Red Boiling is less than 15 miles away. It’s where we go to buy liquor. They got the first liquor store in Macon Co. ever, about a year or so ago. (What they do in my town is not allow people in office who would likely vote to allow booze here.)

Other than that I’ve heard nothing until now. Oh, and I just wrote Director Boles a terse email.

I didn't know you were from that area. So much gorgeous outdoors there. I grew up spending a lot of time in the mountains of Western NC. Lots of dry counties over there too and plenty of guns. Could we get them to worry less about the Chardonnay and more about the assault rifles??
Probably not but you gotta love the irony.

Definitely not FROM here, but living here for the past few years due to circumstances. Friends and family who today look at me bug-eyed asking how I like it here, and I answer truthfully “it has its charms.”

Throughout the year we’ll hear rifle or shotgun out in the surrounding woods. It’s not a murder town. One of the local newspapers has the headline, Man in Underwear Arrested for DUI. See, a regular DUI would be boring. But this ‘ol boy was toolin’ around in his skivvies, and the paper just couldn’t resist adding to the front page headline.

My step father in law came by the other day to practice with his newly-acquired (I forgot the name!) .22 bolt-action rifle he picked up used, at a flea market. He suffers groundhogs intown and the city and neighbors won’t raise a stink about the occasional .22 being popped. The “city” is 4-5 miles away at best.

Parked in the gravel drive, resting the barrel on the door of his F350 he sent a few into a large tree opposite the street. Together we would walk over and see how he did and adjust the sights, in between a few shots of tequila. “These days I only drink agave ...” he says, when he’s out of good beer. I did stop him from pulling the trigger once, as a neighbor was driving by that he failed to notice.

With firing a gun across the street (it’s a hillside on the other side) and sipping a little tequila late morning, it sounds rather depraved and horrible. But the other day Lemon I think it was you who talked about not judging people automatically and getting better immersed in whatever culture surrounded them as a way of finding common ground You could say I’ve done a bit of that, and this city boy has learned a few things about the South and more recently about rural living and being surrounded by poverty. There are real advantages to it ... not many I value long term for myself perhaps, but enough to respect.

This is like the start of a good book, I wanted you to keep telling the story.

When I first started coming here and then living here, I wrote frequently to a friend describing my day as therapy. It was overload and I had to stop smiling smiley
