Guns People Play IV

Another fine reason for conceal and carry.

TEMPE - Police have arrested a man who fired a gun while running after a group of people he mistakenly thought were trying to steal his car. Police arrested Daniel Serrato, 22, Tuesday in the 1800 block of East Broadway Road after he reportedly thought he saw four people trying to break into his car, parked in his apartment complex, police said. Serrato chased the four on foot and when he got about 80 yards of them, fired a .40-caliber pistol in the air while he was running, police said.

No one was reported injured and nothing was damaged, police said. Serrato was arrested on suspicion of unlawful discharge of a weapon, police said.

It was hardly concealed.

Other Side said...

True. However it is just another example of what can happen when a gun is easily available, like if it were being carried and concealed.

The article does not tell us whether the moron-with-gun was licensed to carry.

And yah, this stuff happens.

In Texas, there have been license-revocations--about 1/10th of 1%.

Stunning number, eh?

Other Side said...

It will happen less because of Doyle.

Dad29 said...

Really? That statement implies that the shooter in this story WAS "licensed," which is not documented.

If he wasn't, then he's just another typical crook, and Mark Green/JB VanHollen will see to it that typical crooks are in JAIL, not on the streets.
