Another idiot with a PTC. Guilty of shooting at Somalians

MORON!!! Found guilty of attempted murder. Facing north of 20 years. Makes us all look bad and gives the antis ammo.

Remember, must not be a willing participant. In other words, one can't contribute to the escalation and have it considered self defense. Smh

Did it turn out that he really had a permit or did he just originally say he had a permit? I saw conflicting articles. Some said he just said he did but in fact did not. This most recent article makes it seem that he did. Either way....moron. Hope he rots in prison for a good long time.

Do you qualify for a permit after doing that, twice? Seems like a poor candidate to be granted his rights back, based on our current system.

Not surprised the Red Star Tribune got it wrong and hasn't since followed up with clarification.
