Florida man who took AK-47 to a middle school gets house arrest

Christopher Freeman

I originally posted about Christopher Freeman here.  He’s the man who took an AK-47 Mini Draco ‘pistol’ to his son’s middle school in West Palm Beach, Florida. While at the school he reportedly threatened school faculty in the following manner…

“I want to see the guy who slammed my son. I’ve got something for him,” Freeman reportedly said. “You’re going to need more than what you’ve got because of what I’ve got.”

Freeman did not brandish the gun and claims he forgot he had the ‘pistol’ on him at the time.

I guess that’s a normal defense in Florida because originally was charged with two counts of aggravated assault and disruption of a school function, but prosecutors did not file those charges. Instead, pleaded guilty to one count of possessing a weapon on school property.

Apparently, Florida legislators haven’t learned since Parkland because according to the terms of Freeman’s plea he’s been sentenced to a year of house arrest and can’t own a gun…also for a year. Once it’s 2020 he’s free to once again carry a rapid-firing ‘pistol’ equipped with a 30-round magazine in his pants once again.
