Little League halts season after parent fires gun at tee-ball game

1 hr ago

Raffling off assault rifles at Little League events isn't going to be too lucrative if parents are already bringing their own firearms. The North Vallejo Little League in California has suspended play after the report of a parent firing shots into the vehicle of a parent from an opposing team. "How do you bring a gun to a tee-ball game?" wondered Anthony Spears, whose son Andrew plays. League vice president Calvin Wells said gunfire has been heard near the field before and after the incident, and an emergency meeting has been called to decide the fate of the season. "I'd rather lose a season than lose a kid," he said. [Source]

i live in arizona and its not uncommen to see EVERYONE and their dog with a gun but ive rarely seen them at kids events. and if they are i never see them leave their holster. its all about the gun owner and how responsible he/she is. theres nothing wrong with taking your gun anywhere but if youre going to be stupid about it then theres a problem.
