Jon Andrew Meyer Jr. of Grants Pass, Ore., you’re our Second Amendment hero of the week!
GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) — An Oregon man told police he was using his assault rifle as a crutch to help him get up from a couch at a friend’s apartment when it fired a burst through the ceiling and killed a little girl upstairs, court records show.
A police affidavit said Jon Andrew Meyer Jr. told investigators the gun went off accidentally June 27at the Grants Pass apartment, the Grants Pass Daily Courier reported.
This man puts the “dumb” in freedom. But, friends, it gets better! It does!
Authorities say he was responsible for the reckless burst of rifle fire that killed 5-year-old Alysa Bobbitt of Shady Cove and wounded apartment resident Karen Hancock. The girl and Hancock were upstairs in the same apartment as Meyer.
The little girl and her mother were visiting friends there, but just what Meyer was doing in the apartment with the rifle was unclear. Court records say his fiancee had kicked him out of her place, getting a restraining order, and he listed his current residence as his sister’s home.
Though his fiancee, Victoria Kohout, told authorities that Meyer was a “big teddy bear,” her June 20 petition for the restraining order described him as an “unpredictable drug addict” who had threatened her with a gun, and threatened to burn down her house, slash her tires and break the windows on her car. The judge noted in the file that Meyer had four guns.
This is just so perfect. Another unpredictable, irresponsible gun loon on the loose in our communities, killing innocent people because he’s stupid, unpredictable and did I mention irresponsible?
I am so glad that our Republican senators have made it possible for such people to arm themselves to the teeth so they can kill innocent children. Thank you, NRA!
