    Losing a job, aint worth losing your life, pal. These are tough times, but these aren’t the end times…

  • Not a very smart idea to bring a shotgun into a bathroom and start shooting it off like a crazy person. He’s lucky the cops didn’t use deadly force. Overall, this is the most bizarre story i’ve read all day.

       yeah he could have blown the Sh– out of that place…..

  • Reckless hell, I hit just where I was aimin’.

    I need a youth model 20-gauge for one of my sons.  Want to sell it? Cheap?   Bail & all that you know.  Just trying to help you out.

    I don’t write headlines for a living, but it seems to me,  in an industry that seeks drama to sell papers, the firing of the shot is much more dramatic than bringing the gun with him into the bathroom.

      LOL, I thought the same thing. ” MAN SHOOTS GUN IN STORE”… now that is what I would expect from BDN.. because I bring a gun in the bathroom all the time, helps me feel safe on the can.. LOL

    It is pretty hard to lose a union Mill job…  I suspect backwages after he gets out of jail along with a promotion.

    Is that a shotgun in your pants , or are just happy to see me ??

    I’m intrigued by the interestingly precise yet uselessly vague mention of how much ammunition he had.  “More than six”.  Not “a few” or “several” or “nine” or “2,745” (admittedly, that last is logistically improbable), but specifically “more than six”.  Does that figure represent some kind of threshold?  If you have “more than six” shotgun shells, can they tack on possession with intent to distribute or something?

    Mind you, it sounds as if he was doing a little distributing, albeit possibly by accident.  I don’t see the point in discharging a shotgun in a restroom on purpose if you aren’t shooting at anyone, unless it was his innovative idea for handling a clog in the U-bend.
