The Rutherford family of Jay, Oklahoma, owned a vacant home on a lot just outside of town, and one day last week, neighbors saw several cars drive up to the home and called Tony Rutherford to tell him.
Tony Rutherford grabbed his gun, because that’s what you do, and headed over to the house. Upon arriving, he saw his older son’s pickup truck take off across a field; since the vehicle was supposed to be parked, Tony Rutherford gave chase and “fired his rifle at the driver several times.” At least one of those rounds hit the driver, who was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver was later identified as Rutherford’s 13-year-old son.
Just another case of shoot first and ask questions later in The United States of Guns.
