A transgender teacher in Florida has been removed from the classroom in the Hernando School District (HSD) and law enforcement officials have seized the individual’s firearms after they allegedly made a comment about wanting to shoot students.

WEAR ABC 3 reported that the teacher, who uses “she/her” pronouns, had recently learned of a social media post in which their “sexual orientation was being discussed negatively.”

The teacher was sent to the school guidance counselor’s office on March 24 after reportedly claiming to be having “bad thoughts.”

The teacher allegedly made “concerning comments about self-harm” and said they were having “suicidal thoughts” and that they owned firearms and “wanted to shoot some students due to them not performing to their ability.”
