Kid pulls gun on complaining group behind him. Young and stupid. Youth is wasted on the young, they say.

A man is facing threatening and breach of peace charges, after police say he pulled out a gun at Stanley Golf Course in New Britain over a golf etiquette dispute.
Alejandro Baeza, 22, of Wethersfield, was arrested after course management said he grew agitated when the group of golfers behind him complained about the pace his group was playing their game. They said he went to his golf cart, grabbed a gun and flashed it at the complaining group.

Yup. Not a big deal. People kill, not guns. A golf club could be used as a deadly weapon as well. FWIW, I do not carry a gun unless I am hunting, but I don't begrudge someone there right to do so.

Pretty sure that guy used to post here.

NFL or NBA are good ones for that.

It just reinforces my belief that golf isn't for everyone.   The kid shouldn't be playing golf.   He should be playing another sport more suited for his gun toting ways.   Why keeps a gun in golf cart in the 1st place?   (Not meant to be a political, gun control/right question. )

How else are you going to settle rule arguments?

In Az. I bet there are more than a few folks that have a gun in a golf cart.  I was there recently and folks walk around with guns in holsters, felt like the wild west.

Never know when you might have to blast a drug smuggler. :tumble:

Ok, the guy with a bigger gun wins the rule argument.

Golfer A: "It's out of bounds."

Golfer B: "No,it's not!"

Golfer A: "I have a bigger gun than you have."

Golfer B: "On second thought, it is out of bounds.   My bad.  Peace."

He sounds like he'd be good friends with Aaron Hernandez lol but seriously, carrying a gun is no big deal, in the south where I live anyway. It is a big deal to point it at someone for anything less than a life threatening situation, though. Sounds like the issue is this kid owning a gun in the first place. I carry a gun with me everyday and I've thankfully never had to unholster it, and I've met some pretty rude golfers. LOL But, when you're coming down MLK past dark where I live, you don't mind having a sidearm with you.

Whenever I read articles like this, I think of a scene from the movie Grand Canyon...

Simon: I've gotta ask you for a favor. Let me go my way here. This truck's my responsibility, and now that the car's hooked up to it, it's my responsibility too.

Rocstar: Do you think I'm stupid? Just answer that question first.

Simon: Look, I don't know nothing about you; you don't know nothing about me. I don't know if you're stupid, or some kind of genius. All I know is that I need to get out of here, and you got the gun. So I'm asking you, for the second time, let me go my way here.

Rocstar: I'm gonna grant you that favor, and I'm gonna expect you to remember it if we ever meet again. But tell me this, are you asking me as a sign of respect, or are you asking because I've got the gun?

Simon: Man, the world ain't supposed to work like this. I mean, maybe you don't know that yet. I'm supposed to be able to do my job without having to ask you if I can. That dude is supposed to be able to wait with his car without you ripping him off. Everything is supposed to be different than it is.

Rocstar: So what's your answer?

Simon: You ain't got the gun, we ain't having this conversation.

Rocstar: That's what I thought: no gun, no respect. That's why I always got the gun.

LOL.   Good answer, Strandly.     BTW, shooting is an Olympic event.   Maybe the guy was planning to do some shooting practice while playing golf.

    • I don't have any new video to share but I have experienced some changes physically and with my golf swing that I have to think are going to be beneficial over the long haul. First I dropped almost 50lbs from a high of 223 I was able to get as low as 172 and bounced back up to 179 but I really would like to shed about 15 more to get somewhere in the 160s. Secondly I have noticed something of a habit a bad one at that seems to have gone away. I think since I have decided to throttle down a bit on my swing speed since I'm getting older I noticed I'm not letting go of the club at the top since there is no longer excessive wear on the glove on lower pad below pinky. I'm very hopeful that this is the year I get my game going again with hopefully a new job I'm trying for will give me more opportunity

    • An atrocity.
    • The claim is that it was equivalent to a 9-iron.   So it’s not far off.   Try pitching with that clunker though….
    • Sorry about the darkness, #wiferules. Same attempt - hands straight back to get wide at top.
