Not sure there’s really any criminal activity involved here, but someone’s a bozo. And just who that is may depend on your political affiliation. From Vancouver, Washington, comes the story of Jeffery Barker who is accused by the police of firing his shotgun into the air to scare off prowlers who were outside his home. The cops said there was no evidence of any prowlers on his property and allege that Mr. Brown illegally discharged a firearm. Mr. Brown offers a form of executive privilege as his defense, saying he was just following the instructions of Vice President Joe Biden. He sites a question and answer session with the Vice President in February in which he said, “If you want to protect yourself, get a double-barreled shotgun.” We eagerly await the judge’s decision on this one.
