    I've heard over the years that he is one of the few hollywood folks who understand the RKBA. Looks like he exercises his right too. I hope his daughter realizes that a paper order is just that.

    Daughter: Sorvino Pulled Gun in Dispute

    STROUDSBURG, Pa. (AP) -- "Goodfellas" actor Paul Sorvino pulled a gun on his daughter's ex- boyfriend after the man pounded on her hotel door and made threats, the daughter testified Tuesday.

    "He got in my father's face and said, 'Go ahead, Paul, shoot, I ain't done nothing wrong,'" Amanda Sorvino, 36, told a Monroe County judge. The judge granted her request for a protection-from-abuse order against Daniel Snee, 21.

    Amanda Sorvino testified Snee threatened to kill her at a hotel Jan. 3 in Stowe, Vt.; she said she locked herself in the bathroom and called both police and her father. Her 67-year-old father showed up before police, she testified. When police arrived, the young man was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, she said.
    Sorvino said that she met Snee when he was hired to care for her horses and that they began dating, but that the relationship soured. She said he then began threatening her, and her father "if he ever got in the way."

    Sorvino testified that although the threat happened in another state, she wanted a court order that would protect her at another home she has in Monroe County. The order lasts for three years.

    Snee could not be reached for comment because he was jailed in Vermont, it was not immediately clear if he has lawyer.
    Paul Sorvino, the star of 1982's "That Championship Season," did not accompany his daughter to court Tuesday. His screen credits also include roles in "Goodfellas" and "The Cooler."
    He is also the father of Mira Sorvino, who won an Oscar for her role in Woody Allen's 1995 comedy "Mighty Aphrodite."

    Nice to see a father doing his job. What I find interesting is how subsequent articles say Sorvino could carry the gun because he is a deputy. Umm, I thought Vermont did not restrict the carrying of lawfully-owned firearms by lawful people.

    Actually, it reads: " class="story"Sorvino, a deputy sheriff in Pennsylvania, is entitled to carry a weapon from state to state, Kaplan said."

    In Vermont anyone can carry as long as it is without the intent to do harm.
