    By Tom Callis, Peninsula Daily News
    PORT ANGELES, Wash. - A 37-year-old woman was arrested after the Clallam County Sheriff's Department said she threatened several people with a handgun in the Wal-Mart parking lot.

    Clallam County Undersheriff Ron Peregrin said Teresa Nadine Dumdie of Port Angeles threatened four other customers with a .22 caliber handgun at 4:54 p.m. Friday outside the store at 3500 E. U.S. Highway 101.

    No one was injured.

    Peregrin said Dumdie had argued with customers in the store after they had asked her to stop cursing and yelling at an employee.

    He said she was upset with the employee, saying she had sold her the wrong kind of ammunition.

    After she received her refund, she walked out to the parking lot, removed a gun from her car and confronted the customers she had argued with earlier inside the store, Peregrin said.

    "The long and the short of it is, she didn't like what was happening at the store ... and as a result, pulled a weapon and threatened people with it out in the parking lot," he said.

    Sheriff's deputies arrested Dumdie at 5:05 p.m. across the highway from Wal-Mart. She was booked into the Clallam County jail on investigation of first-degree assault.

    After this she may not be allowed to have one.
    +1000....let those who commit the crimes be punished, not the rest of us that ARE responsible. She's lucky one of those customers wasn't packing themselves....she could very well be dead right now. I know I would have responded with something a bit bigger than a .22.........

    How would you decide in advance of this situation that she didn't qualify? That is what it really comes down to. Until you demonstrate that you are unfit, you have a Constitutional right. This is where some states have stepped over the line by requiring that you prove that you are fit to carry a pistol. They interview your neighbors and friends. If one of them says something negative then they deny you your rights.

    Walmart is looking for an excuse to get out of the gun business - K-Mart used the same one. This is all the need.

    I used to converse with a police officer from North Carolina. His opinion of gun ownership was that if you weren't eligible to own a gun, you probably shouldn't be allowed out of jail.

    That police officer was absolutely correct. That's the real idea behind our justice system, and it used to be the way things worked. People were a lot freer back then, because our legal system followed the rules.

    More people get killed with .22 than with any other caliber and this is a fact.

    Well if it happened the way the story says it did then this is just terrible for all of us, just more fodder for the haters. It would be much easier if people understood that for them to be free everyone else has to be free to. I hope justice is served on this one, there was never any reason to bring a weapon into this scenario.

    There is no way I could decide that for anyone. It just sucks that the idiot doesnt pay for this, people like us do.

    I agree it sucks, but it is the price we pay for living in a free society. Well at least that used to be the thinking.

    Sometimes insane, bad, sociopathic people do things. But we can't legislate everyone else because they do.
    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.

    U.S. v. Minker, 350 US 179, at page 187
    "Because of what appears to be a lawful command on the surface, many citizens, because
    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)

    Well, I guess there was an upside to the flat tire I got on my mobility scooter Friday.
    I was planning on going to the PA WW Friday afternoon to buy an office chair as well as seeing if the scooter really had the range to go there and back from Sequim. I'll try again on the next warm dry day we get.
    Perhaps if you would use a real computer you wouldn't have to apologize for not being able to do so many things on the internet!

    Jeeper I still plan to get my uncle up there one of these days to meet with you and your collection. I'd also like to get the info on that scooter of yours.
    I was thinking that you need to do away with the tubes and go to the tube replacements.
    Send me an email and we'll chat.

    I believe that 9mm or .25 acp has killed more people than the .22 lr. I am not positive but I am pretty sure I heard that some place. It seems like it was the .25 acp. It would make some since because a huge amount of gang bangers carry them. I don't know I looked but never found anything but it seems like I heard it someplace.

    I think it is according to how you want to interpret the stats. If you include wars it may be the 9mm. I think that I saw where the .25 was #1 for killing California LEO. For average citizens I think it was the .22. No matter how you look at them the .22 is a lethal caliber and to laugh at it shows ones ignorance.

    Quite true... A .22 HP HV round can definetely kill. I am thinking that the lady probably bought the wrong type not caliber. Maybe she wanted hollowpoints or a different grain, who knows. But she should have been shot when she threatened other customers with a gun.

    +1

    The .22 LR fired in almost any weapon configuration is downright lethal depending on shot placement. I would not hesitate to "shoot to end the threat" if someone was threatening me with a 22 rimfire or any firearm for that matter.
