postheadericon Irresponsible? Gun Owner Jumps With Firearm Inside Trampoline Park

NORTH FULTON COUNTY, GEORGIA — A man is not being charged after Roswell police arrived in response to reports of an armed man jumping on a trampoline in a kid’s amusement center. The Sky Zone is a place for people to bring their kids and includes a section of trampolines. The man had a gun visible in its holster when he jumped atop one of the trampolines and started hopping. Parents became worried at the sight and told the manager who then asked the man to store his gun in his car.

The man refused. At which point, according to Kiro 7 News, the manager called police. However, police quickly determined that the man had done nothing legally wrong.

“I guess the guy felt that since there wasn’t a sign up, that he could carry his gun in there,” resident Vincent Freeman said.

The man told the manager he always keeps his gun on him to protect his children.

The question we’re asking our readers: was this an irresponsible practice?

As concealed carriers and writers of concealed carry topics, we constantly push responsibility and accountability for our firearms. After all, you can’t protect yourself or those you love if you can’t maintain control over your gun.

Nothing in the article suggested the man was jumping wildly or otherwise in danger of losing control of his firearm but the issue of public perception is a big one. It is this man’s right to carry a gun onto a trampoline inside a children’s amusement center. Until he loses control of that firearm, he’s not in danger of hurting anyone.

The question is: will other people trust him to jump around on a trampoline when their own children are potentially at risk?

It’s an interesting debate and I’m really curious to see what our readers make of this event. Nothing bad happened to anyone. No one was arrested. At most, I think the manager could have asked the man to leave if he is in a position to speak for the lease holder of the property.

postheadericon Attempted Armed Robbery Of Concealed-Carrying Pokemon Go Player In Vegas Park Ends With Gunfire: Be Aware Of Your Surroundings

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA — A group of Pokemon Go players came into some trouble while they were playing the popular game at a park in Las Vegas at 4am. The twist? One of the players, a concealed carrier, was armed at the time.

While trying to catch Pokemon –or whatever you do with that game– the group was met by two suspects that pulled up next to them in an SUV. Armed with handguns, the suspects demanded the group’s belongings.

In that moment, the armed player drew his firearm and the two sides exchanged gunfire. One person was hit in the Pokemon Go group, and one of the suspects was also hit. Both went to the hospital for treatment.

One person in the Pokemon group was shot once in the stomach and taken to the hospital. Meltzer said it’s unclear if that person shot is also the player who had his own gun but that the group of local players knew each other.

The man believed to be the suspect also appeared at the hospital with a gunshot wound to the back. A matching SUV was also found at the hospital.

Both suspects were arrested, and of course charges are expected.

I’ve seen this game played out in the wild and while some are trying to pay attention to their surroundings, most are oblivious. It’s an important reminder that, no matter what we’re doing, we are remaining focused on our surroundings at all times.

These things happen so quickly, after all.
