Man Shooting Weapon Taken Into Custody

Park staff encountered a man speeding into the park though the exit side of the Ash Mountain entrance station in Sequoia National Park in Three Rivers around 2 p.m. on November 25th, Protection rangers responded and found the man near the Ash Mountain Visitor Center, where other park staff had encountered him a few minutes earlier. When they arrived, the man threw a pistol to the ground. Additional rangers arrived on scene within moments, and he was taken into custody without further incident. After further investigation, it was found that the man, a 42-year-old Sacramento resident, had discharged at least eight rounds in the vicinity of the visitor center while shouting about the end of the world and Armageddon. He was taken to a local hospital and held for psychiatric evaluation. Rangers found drug paraphernalia and approximately 10 pounds of packaged and processed marijuana (valued at approximately $35,000) in his vehicle.

It sounds like the marijuana was laced with PCP or something.

In the Wild, a Big Threat to Rangers: Humans

By KIRK JOHNSON

GOLDEN, Colo. —

... Two recent shootings of wildlife officers — one killed in Pennsylvania while confronting an illegal hunter, the other seriously wounded after a traffic stop in southern Utah — have highlighted what rangers and wildlife managers say is an increasingly unavoidable fact. As more and more people live in proximity to forests, parks and other wild-land playgrounds, the human animal, not the wild variety, is the one to watch out for.

“We’re seeing a little bit more of the urban spill into the wild spaces — city violence in the country,” said John Evans, an assistant branch chief of law enforcement operations at the National Park Service.

The new paradoxical paradigm is that gun violence will be reduced when more people have guns.



The cure for a fallacious argument is a better argument, not the suppression of ideas.

Due to declining population?

Just like in the Old West when everyone carried a gun. They had no gun violence back then.
