Without gun control, it will be the wild west!

Oh, wait:
A Massachusetts man faces multiple charges after allegedly shooting cars left in parking spots that had been shoveled of snow, days after two feet of snow blanketed the town.
Jose Osorio was arrested Friday after witnesses reported he fired multiple shots at two parked cars that were parked in shoveled spaces on a street in Fall River, Massachusetts.
With 2-3 feet of snow to be shovelled, I can see why the gentleman might have been upset at his lazy neighbors.  But this seems a bit extreme.

And what sort of guy breaks out his gat in a situation like this?
Osorio faces multiple charges, including carrying a firearm without a license, carrying a firearm after being convicted of a violent crime and discharging a firearm within 500 feet of a dwelling.
Ah, I thought so.  Good thing there's all that Massachusetts gun control!

I was in Connecticut one winter (without a car) and I had a work buddy that had shoveled out his parking place. He cam to pick me up for a home cooked meal at his place and some jerkwad had taken his shoveled out spot. He had left an orange cone to "reserve" his shoveled out spot. He was only gone about 20 minutes. He went ape-shit and backed his 4x4 Suburban up to the jap car and hooked a tow strap to the tie down and drug it down the hill and deposited it in a snow bank.

I was a bit worried about what happened but nothing ever came about his actions.

Yeah, I've heard about this, sort of: People shovel a spot in front of their house, then others come by and take the spots because they can't get anything closer to where they work. From what I was told, by someone who lives in the area, is that most of the locals are opposed to the obvious solution, which is to make the streets resident-parking only, because they all have their cars registered in NH.
