Are we safe or what! Doesn’t it feel great to live in a country where the right of every jakeleg to own a firearm is protected by a basic law of the land? I’m starting to feel safer already:
A gathering of young men drinking in a Winona apartment came to a sudden and tragic halt, when a man living there playfully pointed the gun at a friend’s face while drunk and fatally shot him, according to prosecutors.
Lucas R. Schultz, 20, of Winona, was charged Tuesday in Winona County District Court with second-degree manslaughter in connection with the Nov. 11 shooting of 20-year-old Riley Holden Sass-Loken, also of Winona.
See, that’s two we won’t have to worry about again. One mistakenly thought it was all right to keep a pistol simply because it was cool. Out of the gene pool. The other may never be allowed to possess a handgun for the rest of his life. But don’t count on it. Isn’t it great how that works?
