Man Arrested at Va. School for 'Rifle' Stunt
December 20, 2012
Shenandoah County (Va.) Sheriff's deputies arrested a 33-year-old man Wednesday for entering a school bearing the same name as the one where the Conn. shooting occurred carrying a 2-by-4 board with the words "high-powered rifle."
Following the incident at the Virginia county's Sandy Hook Elementary School, 33-year-old Christopher Gerrit Johnson was taken into custody, reports North Virginia Daily.
Johnson, who was not armed, is being charged with disorderly conduct. He was reportedly "bringing awareness to public safety," Maj. Scott Proctor said.

Seems like his first go-round in school didn't take.

I UNDERSTAND WHY HE DID WHAT HE DID BUT UNFORTUNATELY THE COURT WILL COME DOWN HARD ON HIM. APPARENTLY LESSONS WERE NOT LEARNED, HE ENTERED THE SCHOOL WITH WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN AN ASSAULT RIFLE. HERE IN MY TOWN, THERE IS NO SECURITY IN THE SCHOOLS K1-K12. NOT NEEDED I'M TOLD BECAUSE THIS THING COULD NEVER HAPPEN HERE.

That sounds pretty stupid and a poor idea for a public awareness campaign.
I don't see how he could be arrested for it though. That sounds pretty extreme.
Couldn't he just have been sent home and told not to conduct his "actions" at district schools?

The guy does not help the 2nd amendment doing idiotic stunts. Should have stood out on the sidewalk with it and a sign.
