This is what happens. The charges are inconsistent with the degree of irresponsibility. This is a guy who has proven himself incapable of safely handling guns. Why wouldn't he lose his right to own them? Do we have to wait till he kills someone?Charged with a class B misdemeanor count of reckless conduct is Gregory Vaillancourt, 30, who police allege misfired his pistol on July 24 at 1:30 p.m.
According to a police report by Officer Dean Outhouse, Vaillancourt's neighbor reported finding a bullet hole in the side of his house near a front window and said he thought the bullet had also dented his stainless steel refrigerator. Outhouse reported he then interviewed Vaillancourt who admitted accidentally firing his gun while cleaning it in his living room the day before.The officer's affidavit states the bullet went through Vaillancourt's television set and a wall before traveling 45 yards across the street, passing through the neighbor's house, ricocheting off the metal refrigerator and into a rear wall.
