Tuolumne County sheriff's officials on Sunday afternoon arrested a 71-year-old man suspected of firing a gun at a store in La Grange because he was upset about who his granddaughter is dating.You never know which one of the formerly lawful and responsible gun owners is going to lose his temper. When that happens people can get hurt.
James Wesley Kennedy was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.
The confrontation began when Kennedy encountered a man whose son was spending time with Kennedy's granddaughter. Sheriff's officials said Kennedy objected to the relationship and a heated argument ensued. Kennedy fired a handgun, sheriff's officials said, but nobody was hit and no injuries were reported.
After deputies conducted an investigation, they took Kennedy into custody.
Since it's difficult to identify these dangerous folks before they get caught doing something wrong, we must take their actions very seriously. Any misuse of a firearm should result in the loss of gun rights. No plea bargaining, no calling it an accident, no nothing. One strike you're out.
