    My Comments: Moron, Grade A, One Each! Thank god the female photog was not named Trayvon.................

    “I am licensed to carry a concealed handgun, which I withdrew and used to fire a warning shot AWAY from the paparazza” Jon says, adding, “It is well within my rights under Pennsylvania law when someone is trespassing on private property.”

    Just another altered-reality star demonstrating just how stupid he can be.
    When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

    A news story says that the police confirmed that she had followed him from work, was trespassing on his property and that he was withing his right to fire the shot. The police say they will not be investigating further.

    It is certainly not how I would have handled it, but according to the police, the photographer was wrong and Jon was right.

    Warning shots (unlike this very unique case - very rare and only because he has some fleeting fame) will most often make you the criminal! If you whip it out, do so with the intent to use it. Otherwise, show some adult judgement.

    I guess she was about to thump him on the head with her long camera lense? He is a Moron!

    Warning shots are only dumb depending on where they are fired. When fired at COM, they are very effective at warning.
    The worst thing about growing old is that other men no longer see you as dangerous.

    @ Old_Dog... Please excuse my ignorance... (which is much sometimes...), what does COM stand for? Thanks.

    I have no idea who Jon Gesselin is and why PAPARAZZI would harass him. But he is an idiot that makes all of us look real bad.

    Funny, piggy snort laugh! (I'm with ANGLICO, didn't know what CMO meant either - was thinking it has to do with country music).

    Hm. So, Pennsylvania statutes support a citizen in using a deadly weapon to warn off trespassers on property?

    Trust me, PA ain't Texas, and even Texas would have proplems with this one, depending. The dude is vey luck if he gets only a warning! You and I would probably not be so 'lucky'.
