What do a loaded assault rifle, a crutch, and a five-year old girl have in common?
- The loaded assault rifle served as a crutch to help a certain man get up off the couch in an Oregon apartment;
- The five-year old girl was living a carefree life in the apartment directly above the loaded assault rifle;
- The man got off the couch with ease, the girl upstairs was killed by his loaded crutch.
When reading the attached article, you’ll note the unnecessary additional information provided by the defense attorney (given the tragic outcome of this incident): the defendant was assured that the gun wasn’t fully automatic. This is the question that all of you should be asking right now: Why was the gun loaded – fully automatic or not – inside this guy’s apartment in the first place?
