    Man accused of attacking co-worker with nail gun

    Man accused of attacking co-worker with nail gun - Yahoo! News

    GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - A 27-year-old man is accused of spraying a co-worker at a home improvement store with flammable lacquer thinner, throwing a garbage can at him and shooting him up to 20 times with a nail gun, authorities said.

    Jacob Bertrand was arrested Tuesday on charges of menacing, reckless endangerment and second-degree assault in the June 4 attack, Grand Junction police said in a news release.

    Bertrand shot his male co-worker several times in the chest and at least once in the nose, police said. The victim's injuries were not life-threatening, police said.

    Most of the attack was captured on surveillance video at the store where the two worked, police said.

    Bertrand was being held at the Mesa County jail on $25,000 bond.

    There was no home phone number under Bertrand's name. An official at the jail said he couldn't say whether Bertrand had an attorney.

    I wonder what home improvement store it was?
    Gun control can be blamed in part for allowing 9/11 to happen.

    Not all nail guns are alike you know...

    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    Ummm... Before you guys laugh too hard...

    I did read an article not to long ago about a group that wants guns outlawed for they are unsafe to use. Not just any guns, mind you. Not our EBR's, or our semi-auto handguns... No... They want nailguns outlawed.

    As funny as the article was (to me), the group is deadly serious. And I don't believe nailguns are included with the 2A.

    You can now return to your regularly scheduled laughing session.

    Dipwad shot his coworker in the nose---which, I seem to recall, is located generally near the face and only slightly in front of the brain---with a nailgun and is only charged with assault????

    Where's the flippin' attempted murder charge?!?!?!

    Unless its contacting the surface to be nailed, a nail gun shoots the nails with very little velocity. Back in the days of being young and dumb, we would try to shoot soda cans off a window ledge with framing guns. They barely had enough power at ten feet to knock a can over.
    But the certainly can do some damage on contact, just ask two of my fingers.
