Dec 14, 2010. The place Panama City, Florida – school board meeting. Enter: Clay Duke , 56. Husband, and “gentle giant”, aggravated stalker, previous gunman, and depressed individual. Fired 14 rounds at school board members, was shot and then shot himself.

Angry at his wife’s firing from her job, he went to avenge her.  Now the world was rid of a psychopath but ended up with an unemployed widow. Either way we we are screwed and more importantly so is his wife.

On a more serious note, feel free to watch the video, the more graphic part is not at the end of this video you have to play part 2.

I would like to do a play by play just to make a point. As you watch, notice how people just ran out of that room scared out of their wits and as fast as they could because of one “idiot’s” possession of a gun. Scary for sure!

> At :21 seconds Clay spray paints the “V for Vendeta” on wall as people STARE.

> At :30 seconds these people who came to listen to the school board meeting, after having been granted permission by Clay, either engage in fight or engage in flight… mostly flight with some freezing and definitely some begging.

> At 1:00 Ginger Littleton comes bravely at Duke with her PURSE but seems to faint after her attempt fails. Notice everyone else that didn’t leave is still in FREEZE mode.

> At 3:29 the school safety officer, Mike Jones, arrives but refrains from causing any more panic(thankfully). Hooray! No Mall Cop Tactics!

> At 5:57 Clay fires.

Part 2:

News Report (extra)

Should we feel sympathy towards Clay Duke because of his depression, the effects of a failing economy on his family, his lack of healthcare benefits? I don’t really want to argue what you think you should feel.

What I will say is that what I noticed here was the way these people reacted when they were allowed to leave. They probably felt they made it out alive by the skin of their teeth and the last bit of mercy or sanity Clay Duke happened to muster to allow them all to go. (that was a mouthful) You get my point.

Think about it, this guy is dead, partly because a (nice guy) security guard was hanging around just keeping an eye open and a finger on the trigger.  Yeah,he happened to have a gun on him – thank God! (yes, I said, “GOD”)

So lets put it this way again, the current Federal Government would like to do away with the fifth amendment(did I say fifth? Wait that is another abuse of power amendment, I MEANT 2nd!) Back to my point, do away with guns because potentially there are enough psychopaths out there who could be pointing those guns at us and we need to make sure they cannot become armed. Yeah. That’s it!

Imagine that! Yes, the idea that only police officers or the government(employees) be the ones allowed to carrying guns puts me at ease.

No, it actually it should scare you to death. Just like Clay Duke scared those people and had them at HIS MERCY, yes, the government can do that to you too when it is only they with the power to carry a gun. 

Luckily we will have our purses and man-bags to defend ourselves.
