This happened today. On Thursday May 5, 2016, at 1:41 a.m., East Precinct officers responded to a residence in the 6000 block of Southeast Mitchell Street after the caller reported firing a gun at people in a Ford Taurus in front of his house after the occupants threw eggs at the home. Officers arrived in the area and contacted the resident, 68-year-old William Dean Thomas, and took him into custody without incident. Earlier in the evening, officers took a phone report from Thomas about his home being egged. Officers learned that Thomas was outside cleaning up from the first egging when the second incident occurred. Thomas was booked into the Multnomah County Jail on charge of Unlawful Use of a Weapon, Reckless Endangerment and Discharging a Firearm in the City. Thomas' handgun was seized as evidence and other guns in the home were taken as safekeeping Got it from a flash alert - should be here: https://www.flashalert.net/id/portlandpolice Just what the anti-gunners want... Another idiot using a weapon for the wrong reason. I see that and get angry at the guy for being stupid and then roll my eyes waiting for it to be used as ammo by some lib next time I'm talking firearms and politics. Don't get me wrong. I'd be pissed if someone egged my place too. I might have even gone and confronted the guy (gal, kid, whoever) in the car. I probably would have been CCing just in case it escalated and cause I always am/would have been when it happened. Going to get my soapbox, be right back. But seriously... CAN WE STOP DOING STUPID CRAP WITH GUNS??? It's illegal. It's dumb. It's giving them more reason to want to ban guns. It's making us all look like stupid trigger happy redneck idiots. And then this guy will whine that the dems are trying to take all our guns. Ya don't say... Okay, I'm done.
