A man shoots his son, then is subsequently shot and killed by his grandson. FREEDOM!!

Also, this…

VALDOSTA — On the first day of the new Georgia Safe Carry Protection Act, a misunderstanding between two armed men in a convenience store Tuesday led to a drawn firearm and a man’s arrest.

“Essentially, it involved one customer with a gun on his hip when a second customer entered with a gun on his hip,” said Valdosta Police Chief Brian Childress.

At approximately 3 p.m. Tuesday, police responded to a call regarding a customer dispute at the Enmark on the corner of Park Avenue and North Lee Street.

A man carrying a holstered firearm entered the store to make a purchase. Another customer, also with a holstered firearm, approached him and demanded to see his identification and firearms license, according to the Valdosta Police Department report.

The customer making demands for ID pulled his firearm from its holster but never pointed it at the other customer, who said he was not obligated to show any permits or identification.

He demanded the man’s ID again. Undeterred by the drawn gun, the man paid for his items, left the store and called for police.

Authorities arrested Ronald Williams, 62, on a charge of disorderly conduct, related to the pulling of a weapon inside of the store, according to the VPD. Police confiscated Williams’ weapon and took him to the Lowndes County Jail.

The police chief said no one can demand a person to show their gun permit. Under the new law, he as police chief and his officers cannot demand to see a firearms permit, Childress said.

“This is an example of my concern with the new gun law that people will take the law into their own hands which we will not tolerate,” Childress said.

    Thanks for censoring! ;)

    What ever.

    The problem with the grandpa killing was that everyone in the house wasn’t armed. Only the Grandpa and the Grandson. If everyone had been armed, then politeness would have, no doubt, reigned.

    If guns make you feel “safe” please raise your hand, and get the hell away from me.

    Well, I’m a Dem and carry a gun. Have you been to Wilmington lately?

  5. pandora says:

    I live in the city of Wilmington and do not own a gun and would appreciate if you didn’t walk our streets with one… because that always ends well.

  6. Liberal Elite says:

    Meh. So typical… ~90% of all gun deaths are family and friends.

    And what’s the point of having gun permits if no one can ask to see them? Georgia used to be such a nice place to visit.

  7. Brock Landers says:

    If 90% of all gun deaths are family and friends how does one account for suicide which far exceeds the number of murders in the US?

  8. pandora says:

    Suicide is part of that number – meaning, if you own a gun the odds of you (or a member of your family/friends) killing you or a family member/friend, or you killing yourself or your family/friend killing themselves with that gun is high.

    If you are carrying a fishing rod you have to have your fisning license visibly clipped to your clothing.

    Meanwhile, yesterday a Texas man watered the tree of liberty with six of his family members.

    @p “Suicide is part of that number”

    Maybe the suicidal gun nuts that BL knows aren’t really part of their families…

    The Georgia story is a reminder that gangs wear colors for a reason.
