When Locals Attack

To the Members of the Yale Community:

Consistent with federal reporting requirements and in order to increase awareness of personal safety, I write to let you know that today at approximately 1:30 pm, New Haven and Yale Police responded to a report of a man being shot at with a bb gun on Elm Street near High Street. Two teenaged males, 13-16 years of age, shot in the direction of the man walking on Elm Street. They are 5'8" tall; one was wearing a black backpack, and the other, a dark zippered hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans. Fortunately, the man, who is not affiliated with the University, was not seriously injured.

Anyone having information about this incident should call the Yale Police immediately. If you should witness suspicious activity, please report it immediately to the Yale Police at 432-4400.

Sincerely,

Chief James A. Perrotti

Surely, in light of this incident, we can add BB guns to the list of banned weapons. These BB guns serve absolutely no lawful purpose - they are used primarily to kill robins in rural Pennsylvania and attack law-abiding citizens in New Haven, CT. The Second Amendment should not operate as a bar to safety.

Refreshing the "tree of liberty,"

Your friend,

JJ
