Beer pong is serious business. Police are searching for a group of ‘responsible gun owners’ who took it upon themselves to ‘stand their ground’ against a loss at the popular drinking game.
At around 1:20 a.m. on Sunday, police responded to a call about a shooting at an Ames, Texas party. A group of men became upset when they lost the game which, in any variation, simply means they got to drink more. Two of them then pulled out their weapons and began wildly firing into the crowd of people as they ran to their car.
Daihza Jackson and Decoris Rucker, one of the shooters, were treated for gunshot wounds. Police are searching for the other shooter, “Crazy Chris” Hackett. Authorities are attempting to learn the names of the other men involved.
The Second Amendment guarantees the right to carry a firearm for self-defense, but like all rights it is not absolute. Just like one can not scream “Ebola” in a crowded movie theater, carrying a firearm is something that one should only be allowed to do if he or she is sane, responsible, and not likely to open fire in a crowd.
