A discussion about the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting massacre leads to Lester Davis allegedly firing his gun in the direction of another man at the All Cuts Barber Shop in Wentzville,  MO.

 St. Louis Post-Dispatch: One of the patrons was discussing last week’s shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown and commented that the incident “makes me want to murder the suspect,” police said.

For unknown reasons, (Lester) Davis took the comment as a threat and asked, “You want to murder me?” Davis then walked out to his Volkswagen sedan, retrieved a loaded Smith & Wesson 9 mm pistol and fired three times in the customer’s direction, police said.

Lester Davis has been charged with first-degree assault, armed criminal action and unlawful possession of a weapon. He is in jail and his bail set at $400,000, the newspaper reports. This is proof some people shouldn’t be allowed to own a gun, period.
