David C. Carter Professor Fuller Library Research 1 May 2012 Teacher Fires blanks at scared group of students. This welding teacher lined up twelve kids and reportedly fired blanks at them for no obvious reason at the time. My first thought would be that this teacher either has a very twisted sense of humor, or the kids drove him to asking his teacher friend to borrow the blank gun. The gun never had the ability to cause any real harm nor does it possess the ability to do anything but make a loud noise. For all intents and purposes I think that this guy is in the right.
