Cops: Mom pulled gun at Conn. Chuck E. Cheese's

By Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 05:25 a.m. HST, Feb 06, 2013

NEWINGTON, Conn. » A Connecticut mother has posted bail after being charged with pulling a gun and threatening another woman at a Chuck E. Cheese's restaurant.

Police say 30-year-old Tawana Bourne brandished a .380-caliber handgun and chambered a round during an argument at the children's game and pizza restaurant in Newington on Monday night. Police say both women were at the restaurant with their children.

Restaurant workers called police, who charged Bourne with reckless endangerment, risk of injury to children, threatening and breach of peace. She was freed after posting $50,000 bail and was ordered to appear in New Britain Superior Court on Feb. 19.

Bourne declined to comment.

Chuck E. Cheese's released a statement saying weapons are banned in its restaurants and managers are evaluating security.

Another perfect example of why the NRA and the supporters need to re-evaluate the rationale of why they exist in the first place. We need to get rid of ALL guns. Why in the hell would anybody need to bring a gun to Chuck-E-Cheese?

While I am a strong advocate of gun ownership, I too hate them. If it were possible to magically disappear all guns in the world, I'd agree with you. Then we could start on arrows, spears, knives, stones, fingernails and....make all people exactly the same size and strength. Cool. I would love it. No need for cops, no need for courts...... But my friend that doesn't happen in reality on this earth. Darn.

No, we should not get rid of all guns. Why? The criminals have guns and we can't protect ourselves. Isn't that a good reason why we need guns? Don't take my 2nd Amendment away. Remember, guns don't kill people, people kill people. If all the wrong people have guns, then the ones without is just plain "DEAD". So howzit, does that make more sense.

The NRA would respond by saying the other woman should have also had a gun to protect herself!
