Giving alcohol to minors? That's a slap on the wrist.
Former Arlington Selectman May Face Charges For Underage Drinking Party
ARLINGTON (CBS) – Police broke up a 33-person drinking party at a former selectman’s home Friday night and it wasn’t the first time.This isn't the first time, either - the cops responded to a similar party three years ago. Which, naturally, makes me wonder if the kids in question were 13 and 14 at the time. In 2009, they were not charged. Less than two years later, in the same town, TJIC was stripped of his right to keep and bear arms for writing something unpopular on the internet.
Police say they were called to the house after receiving a report of a teen urinating on the street and found 33 16 and 17-year-olds. Police say 21 of those teens were drunk. Alcohol was found in the home as well.
Got that, folks? In Arlington MA, you can provide alcohol to minors and not be charged with a crime, but if you say something untoward online you lose your right to keep and bear arms. Makes sense, doesn't it? This is what happens when you have "may issue" licensing - for any reason whatsoever, the licensing authority in your town may decide that you are "unsuitable" and pull your permit.
Hell, I hope my chief isn't friends with the chief in Arlington...
That is all.
