While this is not meant to be political - I'm sure it'll quickly end up that way.
 
Awesome story, and quite funny to boot.
 
 

‘Cowboy’ lassoes drunk Georgia man after shooting rampage at Memorial Day rodeo

By David Edwards
Tuesday, May 27, 2014 11:09 EDT

A Georgia man was in custody on Monday and authorities were searching for a second man after police said that both suspects opened fire, and shot several people at a Memorial Day rodeo.

According to The Atlanta Journal Constitution, deputies said that 25-year-old Celestino Moras showed up drunk at a rodeo in Bartow County on Sunday, and was asked to leave because he was not invited to the event.

The property owner told WSB-TV that Moras pulled out a pistol and opened fire, leaving three shot.

When Moras ran out of bullets, one of the rodeo cowboys reportedly lassoed him. Moras was then beaten by other guests, who tied him up until deputies arrived.

Authorities said that two people were shot in the lower body, and one person was shot in the neck. However, WSB-TV reported that “the three wounded guests suffered only minor injuries and were treated and released from local hospitals.”

A fourth person suffered cuts on the hand from a knife.

Moras was taken into custody and charged with aggravated assault. He was being treated for wounds to his face.

WAGA reported that the U.S. Department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement had issued a hold request for Moras.

Deputies were also searching for a second shooter, who they believed had fled the Bartow County area.

Watch the video below from WSB-TV, broadcast May 27, 2104.

The only way to stop a bad person with a gun is a good person with a piece of rope.

Guessing, by the end of the article, he is probably not even in the country legally so he is not allowed to own a gun. Maybe we should deport people breaking the laws? What a crazy thought to go after the criminals for breaking laws, just crazy.

Deportations are soaring under the Obama administration. What's your point?

I didn't change the subject, in the end of the story it said.
WAGA reported that the U.S. Department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement had issued a hold request for Moras.

I pointed out that not being a legal resident/citizen he was not legally in possession of a gun. So he broke the current laws on the books. We don't need more laws when we don't even enforce current laws.

Internal documents obtained by the House Judiciary Committee show that the Obama administration has been “cooking the books” in order to reach their “record” number of deported illegal immigrants, chairman Rep. Lamar Smith said Friday.

You did change the subject, this has nothing to do with immigration.
