Loaded gun found in LL Bean bathroom

Source: Portland (Maine) Press Herald

ELLSWORTH Police in Maine have found the owner of a loaded 9mm handgun that was discovered inside a bathroom at an L.L. Bean outlet store.

Police Chief John DeLeo says 72-year-old Benjamin Newman, a longtime local doctor, heard police were looking for the owner of the gun and notified authorities Wednesday afternoon that it was his, according to WABI TV.

They have charged Newman with reckless conduct, the TV station reported.

DeLeo said the gun had a bullet in the chamber when an employee found it late Wednesday morning in the Ellsworth outlet.

1. Should have both licenses revoked.

 

That includes his license to practice medicine. Hippocratic's oath says "Do no harm" - and what's the reason for the gun then?

Whatever gun permit he has should be revoked permanently.

Chambered too. What an idiot.

12. idiots don't need to go to jail

Fined quite good but don't need to overdo it like the NRA loves it..

thats to say... if everyone who was charged like that.. .. we'll also be putting everyone in jail who lets their tv fall over and kills the kids. well that should happen actually but to put this guy in jail.. would be like putting anyone in jail who doesn't have their flat screens mounted anywhere.

17. Doctors have a right to defend themselves, regardless of their medical oath.

 

And carrying a modern handgun with a round chambered is not unsafe.

However, leaving one's gun in a bathroom is definitely grounds for remedial actions and penalties.

22. The new auto pistols are safe with a round in the chamber,

they work just like a revolver on the first shot.

23. Depends on if single-action or double-action.

 

I carry a 1911. It has three safeties and is quite safe in condition 1.

32. Unless you leave it in a public bathroom - then your 1911 condition 1 becomes a 911 condition red

and why "shall issue" CCW is such bullshit.

Wow. And if some kid had picked the thing up and shot himself with it, are you thinking remedial actions and penalties would be in order?

3. He probably carries it in case he comes across an evil trial lawyer! It took me 3 years to

find doctors for my chronic condition. They refuse to treat me even though I have never filed a medical malpractice suit. My hats off to those who do, thank you!

14. AFAIC, any doctor who blathers on and on about tort reform is a quack.

I knew a doctor once for whom tort reform was his mission in life. I wanted to tell him that we don't need tort reform; we need insurance reform!

4. A pistol in the bathroom?

Did he leave the magazine at the newsstand?

People, please don't leave your firearms behind. If you feel you need to have one on you so badly, it's the least you can do to keep track of it when you're out shopping.

10. this doc should not be practicing medicine if he can't take his loaded gun with him

My mother has Alz. disease and this looks like early stage to me, like when mom went to warm up food in the 350 deg. oven on a plastic tray.

37. In my case, I have evidence. Guy FORGOT HIS LOADED GUN.

Your only evidence that I'm crazy is that I hurt your poor feelings with the word ALZHEIMER'S.

Wow. Your feelings are easily hurt.

ALZHEIMERS ALZHEIMERS ALZHEIMERS.

29. I can understand why he was full of fear (as a likely Faux Newz viewer) wandering in Ellsworth.

http://www.city-data.com/crime/crime-Ellsworth-Maine.html

Crime in Ellsworth per 100,000 in 2010
Murders 0 per 100,000
Rape 1 per 100,000
Robberies 4 per 100,000
Assaults 10 per 100,000
Burglaries 36 per 100,000

Automobile thefts 8 per 100,000
Arson 0 per 100,000

Crime index 209.3 vs national average of 306.9.

Be afraid...be VERY, VERY AFRAID!!
(and armed to the teeth while at all times - esp. when shopping for discount gumboots)

36. What you may not know

is that the medical establishment in Ellsworth sucks. It isn't relevant, but if the good doctor works at the town hospital he isn't good at his job either.
