    He was really playing Russian Roulette with his career on that one.

    On a serious note, the article says he is charged with 12 felony counts of brandishing. That seems wrong. I understand there may be 12 victims, but it was one incident and should be one count.

    This guy is a real hard azz, my brother had him a few years back. He thinks he is above getting in trouble for anything. Hope they hang him out to dry over this, but what I can't figure is this happened around the first of the month and it's just now in the news??

    Kill twelve people, get charged with 12 counts of murder. Assault twelve people, get charged with 12 counts of assault.
    Rob twelve people, get charged with 12 counts of robbery.

    but....

    Threaten twelve people, get charged with 1 count of threatening a person? Is threatening an entire class of students the same as threatening just one?

    Well....it was a welding class. Maybe he was working in an educational bit with a little play on words by wielding a gun.

    I'd say the chances of my medic class taking him down before he got to 12 rounds approaches 100%.

    Maybe his students were talking big about how they would respond if an active shooter ever crossed their paths. Maybe now they are rethinking those plans!

    I would think "Brandishing" should be a "per incident" not a "per person" thing.


    Maybe the local CA is trying to leverage a plea?

    "We'll let you off with ONE count, if you plea to it."

    But, the crime he is accused of is "brandishing", which is the ACT of exposing the firearm. Which, should be one thing. Even if 35 people had been in the room.....

    Not really clear, from reading our Code:

    Perhaps one way of interpreting the Code is that it is a violation for EACH person that has fear induced.....
