A convicted felon has been arrested after shooting a man while showing off a handgun that he shouldn't have had.
John B. Brown II, 40, was arrested March 1 after the shooting in the 1200 block of Keswick Blvd. An arrest report says Brown shot a man in the foot while showing off one of the two handguns in his car.
Police found a loaded .38 caliber gun under the passenger seat and a loaded .22 caliber semi-automatic in the center armrest.
The shooting was ruled accidental, but Brown was charged  with possession of a handgun by a convicted felon.
Here's the thing.  Shooting someone unintentionally through stupidity and negligence should be as much a crime as possessing a gun as a felon.  Either one should result in immediate arrest.


  1. Mikeb once again can't tell the difference between an accident and a crime and demands immediate arrests without any investigation.

    1. Greg, how come when the police are called to an accidental shooting and they look in their little computers and see that the gun owner has a record, they slap the cuffs on him immediately? I'll tell you why. It's because they don't need a long fucking investigation to determine who the gun owner is. They can tell that in a matter of minutes. The difference is they don't take gun negligence seriously enough when the guy is one of you, a law-abiding gun owner. This clown in Kentucky is a perfect example of the special treatment you guys often get. Sometimes, eventually there are charges, sometimes not.
