Congratulations, Christopher A. Reed! You’re Our 2nd Amendment Hero Du Jour

That didn’t take long:

Civilian guards ordered to leave shopping center after one accidentally fires rifle

LANCASTER, Ohio — The armed civilians who have been guarding a military recruitment center here are gone, ordered off the property after one of them accidentally discharged his rifle on Thursday.


One of them has been charged with a misdemeanor after he accidentally fired his AR-15 rifle. Someone from the recruiting center at 1530 River Valley Blvd. flagged down an officer at 12:01 p.m. to report the incident, Lt. Shane Wilson said.

The shopping-center owner issued a statement saying it was decided that “for the safety of tenants, customers and construction personnel working in the immediate vicinity of the Military Recruiting Center, it would be best to request the removal of the armed individuals.”

Christopher A. Reed, 28, of Lancaster, was charged with discharging a firearm in the city limits, and was issued a summons to appear in Fairfield County Municipal Court on Tuesday, according to the police incident report.

Reed told police that he was holding his rifle outside the recruitment center when someone asked if he could take a look at it. Reed agreed, and while he was trying to clear the ammunition from the weapon, he accidentally fired one shot into the asphalt pavement.

The only damage was a hole in the pavement. The rifle was taken from Reed pending his appearance in court, the incident report says.

Conviction on the fourth-degree misdemeanor is punishable by a maximum of 30 days in jail.

Reed was convicted of the same offense in 2013, and was fined $50, court records show.

Score one for our safest, most responsible evah! Clearly that $50 fine from his last incident was a deterrent! /sarcasm

Um, yeah, I’ll pass, you fucking klutz.

  1. Sometimes one sentence says it all.

    As of yesterday, there have been 204 days so far this year. There have also been 203 mass shooting events so far this year.

    That did not include Lafayette.

      I saw on the news, either last night of the night before, Jim, that it is now officially 204 for 204.

      By the way, Jim Wright updated the Seven Stages essay *again*, and reposted it yesterday.

      I don’t know if it was here or on Facebook where I first saw this, but it hit me like a hammer, and it goes like this: Since as a nation we have evidently decided that children dead in school is a bearable loss, the arguments about guns, from both sides, are largely moot.

      What in bloody hell has happened to us as a society?

  2. “What in bloody hell has happened to us as a society?”

    We decided that “FREEdumb” is more important than public safety.

  3. Another ‘says it all’ — this time in cartoon form. And I wish I knew how to imbed it in my comment.

  4. America has found a way to make freedom and liberty ugly.
