Parent allegedly pulls loaded gun on another parent during argument at Chuck E. Cheese.

Tawana Bourne, Connecticut Woman, Allegedly Pulled Loaded Gun At Chuck E. Cheese

Newington, Conn., police arrested a woman at a Chuck E. Cheese on Monday evening after she allegedly pulled a loaded gun during an argument with another parent.

According to police, Tawana Bourne, 30, of Middleton, Conn., "brandished a .380 semiautomatic handgun and chambered a round" during a verbal altercation at the restaurant, which is geared toward children. No one was hurt in the incident.

"That's a step up from just having a handgun in your possession," Newington Police Sgt. Chris Perry told ABC local affiliate WFSB. "There's non-verbal intent there. So, that's how I'm assuming the victim took it and that's how we took it."

A witness claiming to have been the woman on the other end of that gun told the Hartford Courant that the argument began after Bourne's son pushed her 2-year-old daughter off of a ride.

3. We'll see more of this kind of stuff as callous people continue to arm up and carry in public.


When you can't even take your kid safely to Chuck E Cheese, it's time to do something.

4. I would sue the armed party for every cent they had or will ever have. Psychological harm.

7. We've become a society

that finds a gun not only protection from bodily harm but also protection from actually participating in that godforsaken practice of independent cognition. That is what these gunheads are saying with their actions.

9. Because it's never too soon...

...to introduce the kiddies to junk food, gambling, and gun violence. And now you can do it all in one stop at Chuck E. Cheese.

10. Well of course.

Isn't this exactly what the NRA wants? That we all have guns and we carry them and we feel free to use them at any time?

What's the problem here?
