Irresponsible Gun Owner of the Day: Cameron Read


There was apparently a bad moon on the rise in Prescott Valley, Arizona last week. That wouldn’t have been a big problem if Cameron Read hadn’t also been one toke over the line. According to the police and, Read, his girlfriend and her son “were in [their] home when Read reportedly fired a round out of the window, and they reported hearing several more shots as they fled the home. No one was hurt.” Read was evidently trying to shoot the moon, after having smoked a little wildwood weed. “Prescott Valley police said they needed to use force to get Read into custody. He was booked into the Yavapai County Jail for two counts of disorderly conduct, two counts of endangerment, one count of resisting arrest, one count of criminal damage and one count of unlawful discharge of a firearm.” Yep, like so many before him, Read fought the law and the law won

    Please fix your “fought the law and the law won” link. It doesn’t point anywhere.

    That guy totally looks like the dad in the “Son, I am Disappoint” meme minus 100lbs.

    “Gun, I am Disappoint”

    Well maybe he was just Born To Be Wild.

    OW. Too many song references….

    How many shots did he fire at the moon, and how many hit?

  11. avatar JSF01 says:

    Obviously he simply misread one of those motivational posters. It’s “Shoot for the moon, because even if you miss you’ll land among the stars”

      Whichever marketing major came up with that slogan needs to brush up his Newton.

  12. avatar Russ Bixby says:

    Shoot the, moon? Maybe if he’d one of those elusive 900mm guns…

    Simon Cowell, is that you?

    Looks like a winner, doesn’t he?

    Another marijuana-related case of homelessness….

    Is it just me or did anyone else think this was kind of awesome when they read it?

    It’s not like our own government hasn’t nuked the atmosphere before just to see what happens. They also had plans to nuke the moon!

  17. avatar maltwit says:

    Any updates on the condition of the moon?

    I wonder if one of my Army buddies had to respond to that. He’s in the Prescott Sheriffs Department and he was never short of “interesting people” stories.
