A Nurse with a Gun

Good Grief!

WEST NEW YORK - A man was arrested after accidentally shooting his girlfriend in the thigh with a plastic BB gun Sunday, police reports said. Pedro Dubon, 38, of the 200 block of Cliff Street in Cliffside Park, was charged with aggravated assault and unlawful possession of a weapon, reports said.

The woman was shot in the upper right thigh with a plastic pellet fired from an air-powered rifle at a home on 50th Street and Bergenline Avenue at 12:44 p.m., reports said. Jersey City Medical Center responded, but the woman refused
treatment, reports said. The man appeared to be "playing around with the gun" and the bullet ricocheted off a wall before hitting the victim, reports

"No one should be using any kind of weapon indoors," West New York Police Director Oscar Fernandez. "It might not kill someone but it could injure someone seriously."

Note how an Air Soft pistol becomes a "weapon"? Even more amusing alarming, note how a plastic pellet becomes a "bullet"?

Thank goodness we have the Society for the Promotion of Virtue and Suppression of Vice to be our wetnurses and keep us from putting our eyes out! They try their best to keep us safe from non-threats... but...

Ever been to a police website? Check out their advice for when you are confronted by a robber, rapist or attacker: It usually involves "Scream" and "Don't resist." Shore 'nuff, Occifers. Yer the experts, right? Right.

NJ basically treats air guns like regular firearms. If you want to buy an air gun target pistol you're supposed to get a handgun purchase permit from your local PD. It's pretty pathetic.

In NJ anything that can launch a projectile of any type by any means is cosidered a weapon. The only exception being paint ball guns. No airsoft, no BB guns, no sling shots. After all "It's for the children" Jim B

If someone is going to learn gun safety on his errors I would rather see him doing this with ASG rather than with real thing... The whole story is ridiculous...
