All right, let's say he wasn't old and senile acting on some unfounded suspicion. Maybe the neighbor had been guilty of picking fruit and the old guy had just had enough. What he did would still be all wrong? Does anyone deny that?A neighborly dispute over bananas has resulted in the arrest of a Port St. Lucie man.
Richard Jeff told police that he was walking in his back yard this week and picking up branches and debris when his 85-year-old neighbor Joseph Giacomo confronted him.
Jeff said Giacomo accused him of stealing bananas from his tree.He says Giacomo pointed a gun at his head and threatened to shoot. He claims Giacomo was holding a black firearm that looked like an automatic weapon.
Let's say in his mid-eighties he's begun to suffer from any number of conditions which would make him an unfit gun owner. Shouldn't something be done about that?
There may come a time in the life of any gun owner who lives long enough, when the danger he poses to himself and others supersedes his need for self defense. Am I right?
