Man accused of pointing gun at another at Little League ballgame

http://www.bendbulletin.com/article/20120429/NEWS0107/204290398/

QUILCENE — A Washington man was arrested Saturday evening at a Little League field after he threatened another man with a gun during an altercation. The suspect, 58, was booked into Jefferson County jail on charges of assault in the first degree, reckless endangerment, and harassment, police said.

Witnesses told police that the suspect was using “loud and profane” language when another spectator, a 64-year-old Quilcene man asked him to watch his language in front of the children. The suspect then allegedly walked to his car, leading the witnesses to believe he was leaving. However, he returned with a handgun.

More guns = more Second Amendment Solutions.

2. Stand your ground

It is simple, this guy was obviously protecting his first amendment rights with his second amendment rights. who does this 64 year old guy think he is telling an armed citizen he can not curse in front of children at a little league baseball game.

The 58 year old was terrified for his life and introduced a handgun into the situation to show the children how to act in this type of situation.

21. Obviously you have absolutely no understanding about the "Stand Your Ground" laws ...

I suggest you spend a little time doing some research rather than relying on the media to form your opinion.

4. true that

Nothing fuels the flames like a few drinks.

Guns and Alcohol dont mix. I have a friend who says "alcohol always wins".. I have seen that true, couple of drinks and somthing stupid is bound to happen.

52. Oh no, a story with the word GUN in it...

 

Don't get your panties all in a bunch, if someone does a criminal act, arrest them, try them and IF convicted (not before like you would like to do) throw them in jail.





















At least you didn't use the word ZIMMERMAN in this post

53. Yea, a "man" with a gun who used it to intimidate people at a little league ball game.

It's a little bit late after the fact, just like Zimmerman.

5. This guy will have his license to carry (if he even has one) revoked.

Depending on local regulations, an assault conviction will prohibit him from owning a firearm.

Can't say I would feel sorry the idiot.

7. So you complain...

... when the law doesn't work as you think it should (Martin/Zimmerman), and you complain again when the law does work as it should (moron arrested for assault and probably several other charges).

That's productive.
