Day in and day out, we sadly hear of threats of shootings at schools. Horrifically, many of them lead to horrendous results. Thankfully, this recent event was averted.

I know I'm not alone when I say the seemingly never ending gun violence is gut wrenching as every story surfaces. The climate in our country over the gun debate is at it's boiling point for sure. I don't think it's a stretch to say people should carefully watch their words. Here's a perfect example.

This story just surfaced in a report from about a janitor at a school in Stafford Connecticut who is facing charges of making verbal threats against the facility. Police say they received a complaint that David Wachta had said he would shoot up the school last Friday.

Wachta surrendered to State Police on Monday, April 9th and he's been charged with first degree threatening and breach of peace. Police say he is being held on 100-thousand-dollars bond and is due in court today.
