A 76-year-old man from Auburn, Mass. says a bear was about to kill him when it entered his backyard recently, so he took his gun, aimed it, and fired. He killed the bear, but now the senior citizen and military vet is facing charges because he apparently didnt possess the right gun permit.

Shoot, Shovel, Shut up.
If you’re in your 70’s and it’s a bear, the shovel part might be a bit much.
A real problem in this part of the country—he was in MA—is that you couldn’t count on a jury of your peers automatically throwing this out.
He’s a vet that owns a guns? Does he even have peers in MA??
Depends what side he fought for.
Just a way to get rid of one more senior from the obamacare rolls....
latest idea for the left’s very ‘green’ and ‘back to nature’ death panel?
The new gun laws allow them to criminalize everyone. Then remove their right to bear arms. That is the plan.
The insane are running the Asylum.
The problem isn’t dangerous bears but dangerous leftists, obviously.
Second Ammendment is the only permit necessary.
Take it to the USSC!
It’s a damn shotgun, not a tank!
No law can obligate you to be a victim!
infringed past participle, past tense of in·fringe (Verb)
1.Actively break the terms of (a law, agreement, etc.): “infringe a copyright”.
2.Act so as to limit or undermine (something); encroach on: “infringe on his privacy”.

Go for a Jury trial, cause lawyers do not have much of a grasp on reality.
Here’s an interesting thought exercise. Had the gentleman had the right permit, would the outcome have been any different? No. The bear would still be dead, the human alive. Great! So what is the point of the permit anyway? Apparently we don’t need permits to achieve the desired outcome, so for efficiency’s sake, lets just eliminated permits. In these tough economic times, we can’t afford to waste resources on stupid, obviously useless things like these permits.
” will be left broke”
which is why he should sue under one of the various united states codes (I forget which one) for civil liberty infringment.
