    Hey! This just came to me....

    Maybe his lawn mower really isn't a lawn mower at all, but a Transformer!

    The guy goes down to Junior Sample's Auto Sales and THINKS he's buying a prime 1974 Chevy C10 pickup, equipped with racoon tail on the antenna, and a gun rack. He gets home, goes in and grabs himself a PBR from the frig, comes back outside and there's an MTD sitting in his driveway.

    It could happen because I saw the movie.

    I still dislike the fact that he got arrested for shooting a gun at his own stuff. Thats ridiculous.

    I think it was the "shooting at stuff in a drunk and disorderly way with an illegal firearm" that got him in trouble.

    I don't want a drunk guy shooting off any weapon in my neighborhood.

    He could end up with more problems than just being charged with discharging a weapon. Aricle said it was a sawed off shotty, if it's under 14", it qualifies as a short barrell, which means you have to pay the ATF a $200 tax stamp and register it. Having an unregistered class III weapon is a big no no, and will land you in federal court.

    Before seeing the picture....

    Guy shoots his lawn mower? Really? He has a fu manchu. No doubt about it.

    No one acts that cool without one. Just sayin'[/QU

    Well what are the odds that his neighbor knew he was drunk? He couldn't have been too drunk, he hit the lawnmower.

    Bingo.

    Firing a weapon in town/city limits while drunk is bad.

    Screwing around with a unregistered NFA weapon is *really* bad.

    For those who don't know, Short Barreled Rifles and Supressors (aka silencers) are legal to own, however, there is a very specific process to having them registered for legal ownership along with the $200 tax stamp. BATF frowns on trying to circumvent the process and the govm'nt really frowns on not collecting the tax money.

    Some thoughts...

    * I don't think anyone's mug shot ever looks good.

    * There have been times in my life when I've wanted to shoot my lawn mower. However, I would think shotgun shot would just splatter off the engine. Need something with some oomph to pierce an engine block. I mean, you want to kill the thing, not just make it mad.

    * However, I don't think I've ever mowed my lawn while drunk. I've been known to have a few beers after mowing. If I drink before mowing, I think I'd just say "awww, I'll just do it tomorrow". Besides, mowing while drunk may be against the law.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    He ought to be able to hit it with a shotgun, hard to miss.

    Sounds to me like the mower had it coming.
