NRA member arrested for loaded handgun on school property

According to J.J. Burns of King City, California, "All of them [NRA members] have a guiding principle of being law-abiding citizens and believe our constitution is the law of the land. NRA members obey all the laws that regulate the use and ownership of guns; criminals don't."
NRA members like 47-year-old Christian Zaccagni of Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. Zaccagni is a student at Luzerne County Community College. On Monday he gave a Power Point presentation in one of his classes urging students to lobby against gun control and to join the NRA. On Tuesday, Zaccagni was arrested and charged with possessing a weapon on school property and with carrying a concealed weapon without a license.
An anatomy teacher had called campus security after Zaccagni displayed erratic behavior in the classroom. The teacher was alarmed when Zaccagni was using a scalpel to make gestures to his throat. Campus security discovered a loaded handgun in Zaccagni's coat pocket. And even though Zaccagni claimed he has been around firearms for most of his life he admitted he did not have a permit to carry the weapon.
"The permit application is sitting on my China cabinet at home," Zaccagni said. He told reporters he "forgot" he had the loaded gun in his pocket. "I'm very sorry. I'm going to get expelled," he said.


  1. By making it easier for people to get concealed carry permits and getting more guns out there, it makes it easier for people like this to walk around.

    What is the sanity of the shall issue laws?

    Why are they pushed down the throats of the people?

    Even more importantly, why are discretionary CCW laws that were proposed by the Handgun Owners of America in the 1930s being repealed?

  2. Laci,

    I'm confused or you are.

    Are you saying that not having a concealed carry permit makes it harder for mentally ill people walk around?

    As for as the other aspect, what harm did he do?

    He broke the law against carrying on campus. Yes but he harmed no one.

    Are you saying that erratic behavior should be against the law?

    By the way..what is your evidence that he is actually an NRA member?
    The fact that he advocated joining an group of people dedicated to protecting our constitutional rights?

  3. Realize my questions were for Laci, but would you care to answer also?
