(Nearly) Everything That's Wrong with USA . . .

. . . in one brief news bit.
BELLINGHAM, Wash. -- A Washington state man has been arrested on allegations that he pointed a handgun at a pregnant woman because she was smoking a cigarette.

Bellingham police spokesman Mark Young says 24-year-old Justin Dain Palmer reportedly stopped his pickup truck Wednesday to shout at a smoker on a sidewalk, "Who the heck smokes when they're pregnant?" The woman replied, "I do."

Police stopped Palmer a short time later. Young says Palmer acknowledged confronting the woman but denied pulling a gun. Police say they found two semiautomatic .45-caliber handguns in his pickup's center console.

Young says Palmer was arrested for investigation of pointing a gun.

threatening pregnant woman with gun cause she was smoking? A society in which we control pregnant women but not guns?

Now, if there is a racial angle, it's just about perfect, isn't it?

Only two handguns?

Obviously not a true Amurkin.

I had trouble buying a bottle of booze when I was pregnant. It wasn't even for me. :(
