Too soon: ‘Glee’ episode takes on worked-up ‘gun yahoos,’ misfires with viewers

It turns out you didn’t even have to watch tonight’s episode of “Glee” to hear the sermon on gun control. The New York Daily News spoiled some of the suspense earlier today when it revealed that (spoiler!) the school shooting at fictional McKinley High was just an accident — a student had brought her father’s gun to school under the influence of those fear-mongering gun nuts.

Teacher Sue Sylvester claimed the gun was hers, taking the fall for the incident, but not the blame. “Parents with troubled kids are too busy working three jobs to look after them, and the gun yahoos have everyone so worked up about Obama taking away their guns that every house has a readily available arsenal,” she explained.

A member of the Newtown Action Alliance had posted a warning on Facebook, advising other members not to watch. Too soon?

Another spoiler: the shooter was special-needs student Becky.
