Authorities arrested Eric Hamilton, 18, shortly after 3a.m. yesterday at a home on Wetmore Road E., Thompson said.
Hamilton was fired from his job at the warehouse earlier Thursday, authorities said, but the dismissal appears to be unrelated to the shooting.
They figure it was unrelated because the two guys were arguing over a girl who worked there.
So, how would that 18 to 20-year-old law have worked in this case? For one thing he wouldn't have had to procure the weapon illegally. As commenter Mike said over at TTAG, "Bad law be damned."
That attitude, prevalent enough among mature gun owners must be extremely operative among the 18 to 20 age bracket since they're even more oppressed than the others as far as their Constitutionally protected human rights go.
I know. Give them their rights in order to prevent them from having to break the law. That's the general idea isn't it? Some say get rid of all the gun laws using this same twisted and self-serving mentality.
