    PA - Elementary School Teacher's Gun Found in Bathroom by Children, Chambersburg

    Beth Jean Dixon, 63, put her holstered pistol on a toilet tank when she used the unisex, one-toilet bathroom Aug. 25 at Cumberland Christian School, in Chambersburg, police said. They said she forgot about it and left.

    Four children, ages 6 to 8, used the bathroom while the gun was on the toilet. One child told his parent, who told a teacher.

    Why would a teacher feel the need to carry a gun with her into the bathroom? And this was a Christian school. BTW, Dixon resigned.

    Complacency regarding guns will kill and has killed a comparable number of US citizens as those purposely aiming and firing a gun. This is no different than kids finding guns lying on the back seat/floor of cars their parents place them in, the kitchen/living room table the parents provide etc and firing it. Jmo.

    Glad no one was hurt - this time.
