San Diego teacher arrested for bringing loaded gun to school
A San Diego teacher arrested for having a loaded gun on campus once told students that he had the gun to protect the school, according to one student.

Farb Middle School teacher Ned Walker, 41, was arrested Monday in the school's parking lot for having a .380 loaded semi-automatic handgun with a 7-round magazine as well as a 2.5-inch locking blade knife in his car.

After the school's staff told the vice principal that Walker may be storing ammunition on campus, she contacted school police, according to district spokesperson Jack Brandais.

“A search of the two cabinets revealed no ammunition or weapons, however during a search of the parking lot and the suspect’s car in the parking lot, it was determined he was in possession of a loaded firearm,” said San Diego Unified District Chief of Police Rueben Littlejohn.

When he was first questioned by police, Walker denied possessing the gun, officials said.

Officers say they found a gun and wallet holster in the teacher's front right pocket during a pat-down.

“This employee has somewhat of an infatuation with guns and brought the weapon to the school to protect himself in the event of a violent intruder,” Littlejohn said.

Walker faces a felony charge of possession of a firearm on school property. He's also facing charges of possession of a knife with a locking blade.

Police are currently investigating the incident to determine how long he was carrying the gun on school grounds.

San Diego Unified School District has a zero tolerance policy involving weapons, controlled substances or violence.

“With the exception of police, no one should be carrying a gun on school grounds,” Littlejohn said.

A group of Ned Walker's former students said they knew the teacher had a weapon.

Walker’s former student Astin Martin told NBC 7 San Diego, "We all knew. We all knew that he had a gun.”

“He just said it was for protection for us. We didn't really think he'd doing anything with it, he's a good teacher," Martin said.

When asked how it became common knowledge on campus, Martin said Walker revealed that he had the gun to his students at the beginning of the year.

“'I just have it for protection reasons in case something happened at the school,'” Astin recalled the teacher telling the class. “And we're like 'Oh, [okay]', and he's like 'Yeah', and it was just pretty much, we knew about it."

Martin told NBC 7 San Diego the idea of a teacher having a gun on campus didn't bother the class.

"It made us feel extra protected," he said.

Parents feel differently. Janine Lint believes it’s completely unacceptable regardless of the reason.

"I understand that there's a point where we all want to protect the kids, but I think that's up to the school board to place security at schools. I don't think it's the teacher's responsibility to play security guard," Lint said.

Parent Jong Riojas believes there are other ways Walker could offer a feeling of security to students.

"No, it's not right. It's not safe for kids. He can do other things, you know, come in the school, talk to the kids, those things are safe, but gun stuff, that's very danger[ous], you know," Riojas said.

I would feel much safer if my college professors were armed. But unfortunately most of them are anti-gun liberals.

Yes, see how long he was carrying his gun without incident. He obviously has self-control and isn't sick in the head.

There's nothing wrong with wanting to have protection on you.

This is why you couldn't pay me to live in a communist California. Hopefully the state falls into the Ocean soon.
