A Rock Hill man who got mad that someone drank all his beer faces attempted murder charges after trying to shoot and cut two men inside his house, police say.
Henry Neal Barnes, Jr., 66, was charged with two counts of attempted murder Saturday.
One victim told officers Barnes woke up to find his beer had been consumed and he got mad, the report states. He ordered the people hanging out to leave.
After some people left, Barnes is accused of grabbing his .22-caliber rifle from his bedroom and trying to shoot one man with it, but it failed to fire, the report states.
Then Barnes pulled out a large knife and started coming after another man, swinging it back and forth, the report states.
No injuries were reported.
Isn't that a wonderful story to illustrate the difference between gun violence and knife violence? Doesn't that shoot all to hell the old argument that "if someone is determined they can kill with anything?" Doesn't this story show clearly what happens when no gun is available, or no gun that works?
