Prosecutor In NRA Shirt Case Pulls Gun In Office

posted on October 31, 2015

Back in May we reported on the case of a 14-year-old in West Virginia who was arrested for wearing an NRA t-shirt to school. Now there comes a bizarre twist: One of the prosecutors in his case, Chris White, has been suspended for brandishing a firearm inside his own office building. 

White’s supervisor, Logan County Prosecutor John Bennett, says that the incident happened because secretaries had decorated the office for Halloween. “He said they had spiders everyplace and he said he told them it wasn’t funny, and he couldn’t stand them, and he did indeed get a gun out. It had no clip in it—of course they wouldn’t know that—I wouldn’t either if I looked at it, to tell you the truth.”

Compared to the actions of White—who reportedly suffers from arachnophobia, as if that explains it—wearing a shirt with a gun on it doesn’t seem too extreme.
