A 52-year-old man legally purchased an AK-47 because he was a-skeered of President Obama taking away his guns and rights and freedoms.
He even passed a background check, but see, he appears to have a bit of a temper. He admitted having a physical confrontation with his wife and daughter during which he felt the need to point the unloaded assault weapon at them. He said he knew it was unoaded. He made sure of it, in fact.
Ah, so that makes it okay to scare the living crap out of his family. Got it.
Terrorizing your child and spouse with an assault rifle is just dandy so long as you don’t kill them, accidentally or intentionally. Check.
Freedom of child abuse at the point of an AK-47! Second Amendment remedies! Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness! Let freedom ring!
But only bad guys use guns this way, not fine upstanding family men with nearly straight-A kids, right? Isn’t that how the argument goes? Come on, America, give the Family Man and military-style gun ownership a pass.
