A 68-year-old concealed carry permit holder from Massachusetts — always our safest, most responsible ever, don’tcha know! — broke a few laws he should have known better than to break. He brought his loaded gun (and a knife!) across state lines into Rhode Island, into a baseball game, where it fell out of his waistband (so safe, you guys!), at which point he got busted. Ta da:
Police said Scott Guild, of Mansfield, Massachusetts, was apprehend after a female patron saw him drop a handgun from his waist at the ballpark around 8:30 p.m. on Saturday.
The witness told police Guild then picked up the gun and went onto the men’s room.
When they reported to the scene, authorities found Guild in the rest room.
According to police, Guild was also in possession of a knife, which was immediately seized by officers. Authorities noted that the knife had a blade length of at least three inches.
They then located the gun in Guild’s pocket, along with three additional magazines.
While Guild has a current concealed carry permit from Massachusetts, he does not have a Rhode Island permit to carry a firearm.
Guild, who was taken into custody, was charged with carrying a pistol without a permit, and weapons other than firearms prohibited.
Wait, I thought CCW holders were so safe and responsible, ready to jump in and save us from the scary rapists and murderers who are everywhere? No?
I wonder what he was going to do with that knife and gun and extra magazines, anyway? Save us all from the next mass shooter or perpetrate a crime himself? It’s always so hard to tell the good guys with guns from the bad guys with guns these days.
