Police: Patron angered by ketchup pulls gun at McDonald's
Posted 1:02 p.m. today
MEMPHIS, TENN. — Authorities in Tennessee say an irate woman pointed a gun at fast food workers because they gave her ketchup instead of jelly.
Asia Vester, 20, was arrested Tuesday and charged with aggravated assault and unlawful possession of a weapon, news outlets are reporting.
According to a Memphis police affidavit, Vester was in the drive-thru line of a McDonald's last week when she received her food and realized her request for jelly was either forgotten or unheeded. She instead received ketchup.
Words were exchanged with several employees. Vester was accused of pulling out a gun and pointing it at employees, the affidavit says.
Surveillance video led police to Vester.
Since Vester is under 21, it is illegal for her to possess a weapon. Vester is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday. It's unclear whether she has an attorney to speak for her.

She should be glad they didn't give her some of that Kentucky jelly.
The only common sense gun legislation was written about 229 years ago.
I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.
she'll get some KY Jelly soon enough.

You can't get a license to carry in Tennessee till your 21 and you can't buy a gun from an FFL but once you turn 18 you can buy a handgun in a private sale in Tennessee and it's completely legal.
I found that out by spending 5 minutes on Google which the reporter was obviously too lazy to do

I do not relish reading stories like this.
If you use JP-8, then it's technically not waterboarding
Well maybe she is in violation of federal law. Fact is I do not know enough to guess. This is from the ATF website:
An individual between 18 and 21 years of age may acquire a handgun from an unlicensed individual who resides in the same State, provided the person acquiring the handgun is not otherwise prohibited from receiving or possessing firearms under Federal law. A Federal firearms licensee may not, however, sell or deliver a firearm other than a shotgun or rifle to a person the licensee knows or has reasonable cause to believe is under 21 years of age.
