Gun control laws fail: Man uses gun to threaten woman
The Sandusky Register is reporting on yet another example of how gun control laws are a failure at preventing criminals from obtaining firearms or from harming others.
According to the Register, a 49-year-old Greenwich man is accused of pointing a loaded pistol at the head of a 44-year-old woman Friday at a Greenwich residence, telling the woman he was going to kill her, then pulling the gun away and shooting a cooler.
From the story:
- Ronnie G. Freeman, 49, 2600 block of Ohio 13, Greenwich, was charged Monday in Norwalk Municipal Court with felonious assault, a second-degree felony, and having weapons under disability, a third-degree felony, Norwalk Prosecutor Stu O'Hara said.
The incident began with a late Friday night fight between Freeman and the woman, O'Hara said.
Freeman allegedly had been drinking alcohol, O'Hara said.
After the alleged gun threat, Freeman fled the home and took the gun with him, O'Hara said.
Freeman called the woman early Saturday from Mickey Mart in New London.
At the time, Huron County Sheriff's Deputies were talking with the woman, O'Hara said.
New London Police were sent to Mickey Mart and arrested Freeman, O'Hara said.
The gun was not recovered, he added.
The newspaper goes on to observe that Freeman allegedly is under disability -- meaning he's not allowed to possess a gun -- because of a drug trafficking conviction in 1984.
