    using firearms in ways that they likely never intended to use them.

    Like this 32 yr old guy in Brooklyn, Thomas Dunikowski, who thought he was using his illegal AR15 for self defense, when he expressed the rage of his neighborhood, and shot at some drunk, angry teens in the street...

    Now he's facing attempted murder and other charges. The first trial ended in a hung jury, last month, and the second trial is going through pre-trial hearings.

    When contemplating using a firearm for self defense, no one expects that it is they, who will ruin their own life, and ruin the lives of their own wife and children, because of a rashly deployed firearm.

    Curious readers can find links in my recent comments, or google Brooklyn AR15 shooting trial Thomas Dunikowski.
