It’s been over 100 days since I applied for a concealed carry permit in Providence. Discretion being the better part of valor, I pass this story on without comment. No punches pulled. It speaks for itself. From boston.com:
State Rep. Peter Petrarca was charged with firing a gun in a confined area in connection with a Dec. 11 incident outside a nightclub he co-owns. The Lincoln Democrat says the .38 caliber handgun was in his pocket when it accidentally discharged as he reached in to get his keys. No one was hurt. A city lawyer tells The Providence Journal the charge was dismissed after authorities determined the discharge was an accident . . . [Petrarca] agreed to surrender his firearms license and to contribute $500 to the state’s violent crime fund.
