Gun debate. Bow and arrow defeats shotgun in Marstons Mills, Massachusetts
THE gun debate took a twist when Dwayne Peters, 31, of Marstons Mills, Massachusetts, and his neighbour Nathan Hess, 30, rowed.
One thing led to another. Hess scooped up his bow and shot an arrow through the window of Peters’ truck, breaking the front and back windows. The arrow came to rest in a trailer in the yard next door.
Peters preferred a shotgun, which he used to shoot the front and back windows of Hess’ Volvo. What happened next explains the police’s attitude to guns:
Police arrested Peters , charing him with discharging a firearm within 500 feet of a dwelling, injury to real or personal property, carrying a firearm without a licence, disorderly conduct, unlawful possession of ammunition and carrying a loaded shotgun on a public way. He was held on $5,000 cash bail and is scheduled to be arraigned in Barnstable District Court.
And Hess? Well, he will be summonsed for malicious destruction of property over $250.
Bow and arrow wins.
