He can’t carry a gun, especially not there!
The Charlotte Observer would have us believe that a 17 year old is responsible for shooting another person in a park!
We all know that is impossible! First off, a person must be 21 years old to buy a pistol, and also 21 to receive a NC Concealed Handgun Permit. At 17, he’s not even old enough to legally purchase a rifle! So clearly this crime is impossible. Second, the location of the shooting is LC Coleman Park, a Mecklenburg County park. According to their rules and policies, (PDF)
SECTION 29: No person except duly authorized local, State or federal law enforcement officers, and duly authorized County employees or officers shall carry, possess or discharge any type of firearm, explosive device, air guns of any description (BB guns, paintball guns, pellet guns etc.), or bowie knife, dirk, dagger, slung shot, sling shot, leaded cane, switchblade knife, blackjack, metallic knuckles, razor, shurkin, stun gun, or deadly weapon as defined in the North Carolina General Statutes within any park unless authorized by permit issued by the Director.
So someone please explain to me how they can possibly believe that this crime has actually occurred. Of course, there is a different interpretation. It’s possible that there exist a class of people who will murder you, even if they have to break a whole bunch of laws in order to do it. Maybe it’s time to end this “no guns in parks” farce once and for all.
