18. A guy shoots out tires...people see him do this...

he claims he blacked out and has no recollection...and no one thinks he should be prosecuted?

This, my friends, is the problem. Any misuse of a firearm, whether accidental or intentional, should be prosecuted. Period.

If the argument about gun control stands on the premise that such laws would infringe upon the "responsible gun owner's" right to bear arms, somewhere society has to define exactly what "responsible gun ownership" entails.

I agree that bogus arrests shouldn't be held against anyone, but that idea doesn't seem to apply to this particular shooter.
