In Kansas, where gun rights are a birthright, and no permit or training is required to carry a weapon, one of our safest, most responsible citizens evah just celebrated Wichita State’s win over Arizona by nearly shooting his 72-year-old neighbor as she read in bed:
A 22-year-old man grabbed his older brother’s handgun late Thursday night in west Wichita, stepped outside and fired a shot, Lt. James Espinoza said. The bullet struck the house next door, passing through the outside wall into a bedroom where it narrowly missed a woman reading in bed with her husband next to her.
A police report on the incident indicates the shot was fired from the back porch. Espinoza said there was no history of conflict between the residents of the two houses.
“Apparently, he had been watching the Wichita State game,” Espinoza said of the suspect, and the shot may well have been fired in celebration because the Shockers had just beaten Arizona.
“The timeline” for that explanation “would have been accurate,” he said.
