33 things to know about White House gun violence plan
ST. PAUL, Minn. (KMSP) -
A St. Paul man has been charged with terroristic threats for pointing an AK-47 rifle at his daughter during an argument over the fact that she got two B's instead of straight A's in school.

According to the charges, 52-year-old Kirill Bartashevitch recently purchased the AK-47 due to fears that such weapons would be banned under President Obama's push for gun control legislation.

Oh yea. These guns are primarily used on criminals, right? These families need guns to protect themselves, right? If I were a betting man - this sort of scenario (using guns to discipline children) is MUCH more likely to happen. Needless to say, this was a ridiculously inappropriate way to use a gun.

This is a news item, even though it is a gun issue related article.

Kirill Bartashevitch is charged with two counts of terroristic threats for pointing the gun at his daughter and wife. Bail was set at $20,000 with the conditions Bartashevitch have no contact with his daughter or wife.

If convicted, each charge carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison and a $10,000 fine
Well, in this case, the law still works.
