(Newser) – An Indiana high school business teacher has admitted to writing a threatening message on a chalkboard. "Period 6 (only)," it reads: "(A) You are idiots!!!! (B) The guns are loaded!!! (C) Care to try me????" The teacher "had been absent two days prior, and he was reacting to some comments that were made by the substitute teacher," an official says. The longtime teacher was sent off campus; whether he'll keep his job is unclear, CBS 2 reports.

A student took a picture of the message, which a school official spotted while monitoring student Facebook pages. "We’re not saying in fact that there is a threat. That’s what we’re determining by interviewing the students, the staff," says a police chief.

This sounds more like a multiple choice question then a threat of violence. Of course, given the sad state of our education system, a multiple choice question is probably more of a threat than a gun.

It's not the fault of guns for a mental case teacher.

At this rate we will have guns outlawed by this generations graduation. The government and school systems are programming kids to fear guns and any reference to them in today's world. That works great if you intend to take over a country.
