Thanks for all the info JT. i wish our politicians would use facts/research for something other than reinforcing their position on emotionally charged issues. clearly the problem lies within the scope of mental illness and societal influences on "gun culture." it's just way easier to blame guns than the people who misuse them i guess. i'd be curious to see if anyone's researched the frequency that california gun owners are victimized due to the laws regarding "safe storage transportation" of firearms in the state. that said, the pro-gun lobby is anchored just as deep in emotional and fear based rhetoric as the uninformed dems on the other side of the issue.

owning a gun and itching to use one at the first legal opportunity are two completely different things though they fall under the same "right" to firearm ownership.

not taking any stabs at you in particular JT. i just find the whole situation a little strange, i'm also in no disagreement that the indy's journalism wasn't quite up to par with the gravity of the situation (something as serious as the potential discharge of a handgun in a densely populated residential neighborhood is no laughing matter). i know the firearm wasn't discharged but in my opinion that's the next logical step to retrieving and brandishing it. at the stage in which this story was reported, i can only surmise that without police intervention it was quite possible someone could have been killed. i think regardless of the letter of the law, as members of a community it's important to understand that handguns and their use (or misuse) come with incredibly grave consequences. i don't care if it's "legal" or a "right," the last thing we need is irresponsible people presenting their handguns at any legal opportunity. i'll happily change my opinion when new evidence is reported that the use of a firearm in any capacity was justified.

given the location, the use of a firearm would only be justified if there was an immediate mortal threat with no other option (closing the front door and ignoring the off leash dog). firing a handgun on DLV seems massively inappropriate with an unreasonably high risk for collateral damage. i don't think a dog understands the whole "brandishing a firearm" thing either... pretty poor judgement displayed by the defendant. sure, defend your "right" to own a gun but this guy ain't your poster child. maybe it'll launch his celebrity career though? george zimmerman 2.0 right here.

OhMan hit the nail on the head. This SB life is so tough, it's hard out here on these vicious streets. the clean running water, parks, schools, ocean, beaches, especially the refrigerated food an the electricity at grandma's house where i live. you don't know how hard this life is, homey.
