I really need to refresh on my Bill of Rights and the US Constitution. I know anything necessary is legal, regardless of the apparent insanity. I know
this is just another attack on the 2nd Amendment. The utter disgust I have at the kind of person(DA) that would use this kind of situation to add to
the #'s of their successful endeavors on their political resume is just the kind of person the gov is trying to promote its own recruiting. Shameful.
The guy was protecting himself. I'm amazed he dropped it on the 1st shoot. It usually takes a head shot from a high power rifle to drop a bear.
An Auburn, Massachusetts, man is facing charges for killing a bear in his backyard. The odd incident unfolded after the animal chased Richard
Ahlstrand around his yard. Apparently unable to escape, the 76-year-old turned to his shotgun.
So I would think the only reason a person would illegaly bait and kill a bear is to turn it into a trophy. You would NOT shoot it with a shotgun if
that were your intention.
Seems like a crazy story, perhaps an example of our laws gone wild. Where is the common sense here? It shouldn't take lawyers, judge and jury to
find it. In fact, the more our democracy breaks down and relys on the 'system' to sort it out later, the deeper we dig our hole.
