Charges were filed Wednesday in District Court in Annapolis against Keith Elgin Shepherd, 32, a civilian police officer for the Army in Northern Virginia. He faces two misdemeanor charges: animal cruelty and discharging a firearm within 100 yards of an occupied home.
They obviously haven't caught on to the wisdom of the one-strike-you're-out idea. Two misdemeanor charges are not enough. If found guilty of misusing his firearm, this man should forfeit the right to own guns. I can see people arguing about accidental discharges, but when someone purposely misuses a gun, they should get the one-strike-you're-out treatment.
What's your opinion? By the way, what is a "civilian police officer for the Army" supposed to be?
