A 35-year-old Lawrence man was arrested early Saturday morning after pointing a gun at his girlfriend during a fight.

According to Lawrence Police Sgt. Bronson Star, officers were dispatched to the 2800 block of Ridge Court about 3:49 a.m. Saturday in reference to a disturbance involving weapons. Officers were advised a man and a woman had been fighting in the street and the man was armed with a gun.

When police arrived at the scene they contacted both the man and woman, who were in a vehicle sitting in a nearby parking lot. The woman said that during the fight the man, her boyfriend, had pointed the gun at her.

No one was injured during the incident and police recovered the gun from the scene.

The man was booked into the Douglas County Jail about 4:22 a.m. on charges of aggravated assault.

Just wait until that Tea Party guy starts commenting on this story. He's gonna say that's it's our second amendment right to point guns at people, and that Obama's trying to strip us of that right.

I laugh about the Obama taking guns stuff. Obama has never said one word about guns, and all the Supreme Court does is strike down existing anti-gun laws. Pretty much as long as you check you guns at the border before entering NYC, in this country your fine. Now if Bloomberg runs for President, you will not be able to shut up the NRA.

To be fair, they don't say anything about what the woman did. There are things she could have done that would make it appropriate to point a gun at her. Chances are though this was just a drunken idiot that needs his gun taken away anyway.

She could have pulled a knife on him...probably not, but it happens.

You know, it's the darndest thing...punctuating my threats with a gun in my hand really seems to get my point across.

Gun rule #1. Never point a firearm at something you don't intend to shoot. Short of her threating him first with deadly force he has absolutly no reason to point a firearm at her. Loaded or unloaded. Although it sounds as though he may have been loaded. I am pro conceal carrry, but this clown needs have his fireams taken until he can prove he is adult enough to handle them properly. This kind of behavior is not what lawful gun owners and users need as their poster child.

I would recommend that she break up with him. That kind of thing should be a deal breaker.

It's still not as cool as the guy threatening his roommate with a knife in his mouth a few weeks ago.
