Gunman Fires on Florida School Board; Kills Himself (VIDEO)

In yet another terror-filled incident, 56-year-old Clay Duke entered a Panama City, Fla., school board meeting with the intention of shooting school board members. Duke, who was angry about his wife being fired, disrupted the meeting by proclaiming that he had "a motion" and spray-painted a large "V" with a circle around it on the wall. When he turned back around, Duke threatened the room with a gun. After excusing the women and children, he turned to the school board. School board member Ginger Littleton returned to the room and hit Duke with her purse, to no avail. He ordered her out again. School superintendent Bill Husfelt tried to talk Duke out of the attack, or at least letting the other board members go. "Will you let them go? You're obviously upset at me, so why are they here?" Husfelt said in the video. "This isn't worth it. This is a problem." Duke then fired on the school board members, who dropped beneath their desks. Mike Jones, a school security officer, exchanged fire with Husfelt and eventually wounded him. Husfelt fell to the ground, where he killed himself.

Duke was obviously crazy, but why is it so easy for crazy people to get guns? Is this what Second Amendment advocates want? More senseless terror and killings? Counting down to the next public shooting.
