Thanks for the link, Hook686.

I'm not a lawyer, but as I read the decision, it seemed to me the appellate court had focused on, and by suggestion so had the trial court, the fact that the defendant was not licensed to carry the weapon, and that the act of bringing a loaded gun into a tavern was unlawful and careless on his part.

It also read like his using a loaded gun as a bludgeon in a crowded enviroment met their standard for negligence.

I wonder if he'd have been better off using the gun as a gun, and shooting the guy with the knife...
