Man to face charges for shooting dad
A 24-year-old Boardman man will appear in Mahoning County Area Court today to face a misdemeanor negligent assault charge after accidentally shooting his 51-year-old father in the leg Saturday night.
Raymond Cerni Jr. is accused of shooting his father, Raymond Cerni Sr., at their Montrose Avenue home shortly after trick-or-treat hours ended about 7:50 p.m. In reports, police said Cerni Jr. “appeared to be intoxicated.”
Cerni Jr. and a witness to the shooting told officers there was no argument before the gunfire and that the witness, Cerni Jr. and his father were discussing guns and ammunition when Cerni Jr. displayed his gun. When he tried to clear the chamber, the 40-caliber, semiautomatic handgun fired, according to records.

1. 42 years and I still haven't shot my Father.
Neither has my 52yo brother.
My son hasn't shot me either....
Nor my daughter
Nor my wife
Nor have I shot either of them
I'm going to assume it's my experience that I pass down to my family.
Stay safe my friends, but go prepared to save a life.

5. Not insisting on that may have been one of my biggest mistakes in my last disastrous relationship
I'm going through the one-year anniversary of a horrifying series of events that cost me some money and may have taken years off my life.
No more pious religious messed-up women for me.

9. It is not my believe that one should be licensed by the state to exercise a civil right.
You are the one that would demand that a permit/license to exercise a civil right. So the question remains. What are YOU doing to assure that a permit/license is required.
