Beware_LAC

Phil Cowherd III has been a member of the Harrisburg, N.C. Town Council for 15 years. He was elected mayor pro tem three times, according to his biography on the town’s website. But Cowherd didn’t seem too civic minded when he allegedly shot his son after a Carolina Panthers game on October 5 according to his wife. Cowherd believed the son an intruder said Sheila Cowherd in a 911 call. “My son was banging and knocking my door apart, I don’t understand why, but my husband must have been afraid– he went and got the gun.” Scared or angry? Sheila Cowherd also said her husband shot her son in the leg because he wouldn’t stop “banging on the door.” Authorities believe it was a fight between father and son.

Beware the Law-Abiding Citizen–Friendly Fisherman Shoots Two Deputies

Beware_LAC

Scott B. Peters is described by neighbors as “quiet and friendly.” He was often seen “fishing at a
nearby lake.” There was no documented history of domestic abuse at his home. But last week, when police were called to his Holiday Hills home in suburban Chicago for a domestic disturbance, he greeted them by allegedly firing an assault weapon through the door while wearing a military style helmet and a ballistic vest. Two McHenry County deputies were shot. More firearms were found in the residence.

Friendly fisherman who shoots deputies through the door with an assault weapon–another reason to Beware the Law-Abiding Citizen.

Beware the Law-Abiding Citizen–Legal Gun Owner Fires at Chicago Commuter Train

Beware_LAC

The call came in just before noon last Thursday. A man with an assault rifle was firing at a Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) Blue Line train at the busy downtown station of LaSalle Street and Congress Parkway. The suspect had 60 rounds of ammunition. Chicago police arrested Lorenzo Jones, 25, preventing what might have been Chicago’s own Long Island Rail Road Massacre in which 6 were killed and 19 wounded in 1993. Jones, they said, had an extensive arrest record but also a valid Illinois Firearm Owner’s Identification Card (FOID) making him “eligible to possess and acquire firearms and firearm ammunition.” Whether Jones was issued a FOID card despite his arrest record or authorities fail to revoke his FOID card as his arrests piled up, he was a “law-abiding citizen” in the eyes of the law!
