David Codrea picked it up:

Florida school board shooting shows failure of ‘gun control’ on multiple counts

Superintendent Bill Husfelt, who acted bravely, albeit futilely, had time to say “Please don’t†before assailant Duke opened fire. The rest had to resign themselves to diving for cover in terror.

Why? Isn’t Florida one of those states with “shall issue†concealed carry and a “stand your ground†law deemed so radically dangerous by the anti-gunners that the Brady Campaign harassed arriving passengers at Miami International Airport, warning them to be wary of “nervous or frightened residents†who might initiate violence against them in a dispute because of the state’s “Shoot First Law�

Yes it is. But that’s trumpedâ€"at least in the eyes of the Bay District Schools boardâ€"by policy:

[quote:2yxbglfd]In accordance with the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990, employees of the District, parents of students, and visitors (with the exception of law enforcement officers) shall not possess, discharge or attempt to discharge a weapon as described in School Board Policy 7.203 on any facilities or real or personal property owned by the School Board. An employee, parent or visitor in violation of this policy shall be referred to law enforcement for possible criminal prosecution.

Great article on the futility of gun control to stop criminals from killing or attempting to kill innocent people in a "Gun-Free Zone." I like to call them "Victim-Rich Environments."

Yeah, that sure is a strange wording. I assume it would be up to the arresting officer to use his/her discretion on whether they wanted to arrest for the offense. Then it would be up to the DA to decide whether or not to charge him.

I would guess you are at least getting arrested. Then the DA will decide whether to charge you or not. I guess if you get a really anti-gun DA, you're SOL.

Another fact about the gunman in the article. He was a "prohibited person" so the law forbidding him to buy and be around a firearm didn't work, either.

Then there’s this inconvenient truth about the attacker:

[quote:2hheq5jz] State prison records show Duke was charged in Oct. 1999 with aggravated stalking, shooting or throwing a missile into a building or vehicle and obstructing justice. He was convicted and sentenced in Jan. 2000 to five years in prison but was released in Jan. 2004.
The guy was a “prohibited person,†forbidden by law to have a gun. I guess that law didn’t work, either…[/quote:2hheq5jz]

Also, if the lady who whacked him with her purse had been armed, she could have put a well-aimed headshot right to the back of his head.

What could have stopped Duke sooner?

Well, we know board member Ginger Littleton had time to sneak up behind him and whack him with her purseâ€"placing herself in grave danger of being murdered at point blank range.

If you have time to do that, someone with the right equipment, training and mindset would certainly have time to squeeze off a few rounds. Watch the video and see that for yourself.
From his facebook page, it also appears the guy was not a right-wing gun nut, either. He was a left-wing nutjob.
Addendum: And evidently, no “right wing extremist gun nut†was he. Based on his Facebook page, his favorite influencing haunts included “The Progressive Mind,†“Media Matters,†and other so-called “progressive†websites. His bio paragraph substantiates a self-absolving resentment mindset.
