Gun Fired Outside Bar

The action took place in Great Falls, Montana. A 20-year-old was arrested, but since he's got a clean record and comes from a good family, the "assault with a weapon and criminal endangerment" charges will surely be plea-bargained down to misdemeanors. Perhaps in Montana those charges already are misdemeanors. The important thing is that this young man doesn't have to forfeit his gun rights. He's young and will have lots of reasons to own guns throughout his long life.

Yes I made up that part about the clean record and good family, and the rest was pure sarcasm.

What's your opinion? Isn't it true this is what often happens with misuse of guns as well as accidents? Hasn't it been proven that people who do this kind of stuff tend to do it again? Oh, sorry, I just made that up too. But don't you think it's true?

Please leave a comment.


  1. MikeB: “Hasn't it been proven that people who do this kind of stuff tend to do it again?”

    Yes, people who do intentional acts of crime tend to do it again. It sounds like we are in agreement on that part.

  2. Plea bargaining is not reserved for gun crimes. It is the superlawyer way.

  3. Then we all agree. The system you guys support is terrible flawed, yes?
