As a political writer, I have a tendency to get into some very heated debates over politics and more often than not, I’m challenged to actual physical fights to settle the issues being discussed. I have never considered getting violent over my beliefs, or the beliefs of someone else, so this story is extremely shocking and disgusting to me. What has happened to America?
An Ohio man accused of shooting another man in the leg during a fight over presidential politics last month has turned himself into police.
Cleveland.com reports 45-year-old Darnell Hall has been charged with felonious assault.
He appeared Saturday in Cleveland Municipal Court, where his bond was set at $15,000.
The July 25 shooting at Winston’s Bar in Cleveland came after the two men started arguing about the presidential election. Police say Hall left the bar, returned and opened fire, striking the 60-year-old man once in the leg.
But at Saturday’s hearing, defense attorney Harvey Bruner said the bar owner tried to grab Hall’s gun, which caused the gun to fire one shot.
Bruner said the 60-year-old man had said Republican Donald Trump would be a good president. Hall disagreed.
I don’t know what kind of gun it was, but there is no firearm in the world that goes off by merely grabbing it. All of the guns that I know of need to have the trigger pulled in order to discharge, and it’s really hard to pull the trigger from in front of the gun, meaning that ultimately, Hall is the one responsible for the shooting.
