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)

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.
Oh, yeah. The accused is under 18, so there are no public records on anything criminal he might have done in the past. The victim, however, is not exactly pure as the driven snow.
