Two patrons inside the bar of BJ's Restaurant and Brewhouse in Eugene, OR got into a dispute as the Super Bowl game was nearing its end last evening.

One man was an Atlanta Falcons fan, who become very agitated and upset, as the Falcon's lead in the game melted away. He began to yell at another patron inside the bar, who was apparently rooting for the Patriots. The Falcons fan became so agitated and upset, that he pulled a handgun that he had concealed on his person, and fired a shot towards the Patriot fan, which missed and struck the bar's floor.

Thanks Buddy! ... That's just what we needed.

Why don't ya go get the shovel and bury us ...instead of adding more nails to our concealed carry and gun rights coffin?!

Let this be a reminder to all who carry or own a gun.
Any mishap with a gun can lead to problems for all gun owners.
Luckily it was just a injured bar top.
The gun owner might ( should not ) not get off so lucky.
I get that we all make mistakes ... But it behooves us a gun owners to take that extra moment to be safe.
Gun ownership isn't just a right , its a huge undertaking , that needs to be met responsibly.
To all who carry responsibly thank you.
Andy

Whatever led up to this, I hope the guy isn't a CHL holder, that will just be worse for us. If he's just a douche-nozzle carrying a gun without a permit, at least we can maintain some separation.

Either way, I'm not defending this guy, he needs to sit in jail for a while, and probably is going to lose any chance at owning guns in the future. Stupid azz move. :mad:

He was not charged with illegal possession of a concealed handgun, so it does indeed appear that he had an Oregon Concealed Handgun License.

The guy is 63 and retired, and had no prior criminal history.

Perhaps this is a case of early Alzheimer's? Or maybe alcoholic brain damage. Many people have brains that are in poor condition by the time they are in their 60's.

Here is a photo of the suspect, together with a photo of the establishment.

Well, I definitely don't like hearing that. CHL holders need to hold themselves to a higher standard, if for no other reason than to not be a roadblock to the rights of the rest of us.
