It's a safe bet that he was a lawful gun owner because the charges did not include illegal possession of a gun or anything like that. It's only a slightly bigger leap to consider the possibility that he also held a concealed carry permit, this being Pennsylvania and all.A Plymouth man faces charges after allegedly threatening his ex-girlfriend with a gun early Sunday morning. Andrew Drury, 22, of Downing Street, is charged with reckless endangerment, terroristic threats, simple assault, harassment and disorderly conduct.According to arrest papers, police from Plymouth, Larksville and Edwardsville went to a home on Aben Lane around 2:45 a.m. where Maria Villano said Drury was pointing a handgun at her. While on her cellphone with Luzerne County 911, Villano said Drury was running towards his home on Downing Street.Officers found Drury sitting on a couch in his house. He was arrested without incident, telling police the gun was on the night stand in his bedroom. Police found a holstered 9-millimeter Highpoint Model C9 gun that was loaded but didn't have a bullet in the chamber.
Whenever the crime is one of domestic violence, in which the CCW permit plays no part, it is often overlooked in the reporting. And to the great enjoyment of the gun-rights advocates who love to boast about how responsible and safe they are, these concealed carry permit holders who switch sides by committing a crime go undetected as such. They look just like all the other formerly lawful gun owners who become criminals.
