    Post Chilling Picture Painted By Asst. DA in Self-Defense/Alleged Criminal Homicide Case

    An argument made by an assistant district attorney in an Omnibus Pre-Trial Hearing held August 20, 2018, paints a chilling picture for any legal owner/carrier.

    The ADA said "the act of carrying a gun was pre-meditation."

    The ADA said "that shooting center mass is a first-degree, intentional killing (as opposed to intent to kill)."

    This information was shared with me by the mother of the accused who attended the hearing.

    Anymore information to this particular event?

    Did this take place in Pennsylvania, if so where?

    And owning a fire extinguisher shows intent to set your own home ablaze.

    Got it.

    Having a penis is the intent to commit rape. Someone should ask the DA if he has a penis.
    Rules are written in the stone,
    Break the rules and you get no bones,
    all you get is ridicule, laughter,
    and a trip to the house of pain.

    He's a DA, he is a penis.

    The act of carrying a handgun in a holster supported by a belt is premeditation. Holsters are designed for quick access to the gun.

    (Believe it or not, someone fully believing this posted it as a warning in a forum).

    The act of putting new brake pads in my car is pre-meditating having to stop when someone pulls out in front of me and might kill me.

    The act of hanging a fire extinguisher in my house is pre-meditating how to deal with a cooking fire that might kill me.

    That said, tell me why cops carry guns.

    Again, tell me why cops are taught to shoot center mass.

    Please tell me the accused has a good attorney.

    I'd want to see the details of the case, whether the shooter was licensed, whether he open carried on foot, etc.

    Bringing a gun to the robbery you're planning, for instance, WOULD be evidence of premeditation. Bringing it to the Walmart when you buy bread and underwear, not so much.

    I've heard "self defense" claimed by bad guys who shot the homeowner after the homeowner pulled a gun because men were kicking in his door. It's not self defense if you're provoking the response.

    There was a case many years ago, where a sentence was struck down on appeal because the DA told the jury about all the other guns that the defendant owned, and stressed what a dangerous man he must be. The appeals court held that this was a 2nd Amendment violation, to hold his lawful ownership of guns against him. Seems like there's a parallel here, maybe.
