Not too far from me...

due in part to the media coverage. His lawyer's playing up the 'he was on medication' angle.
Anyone on medication heavy enough to be used as a defense angle... shouldn't be allowed to own a firearm. (or a frying pan for that matter)
He had to be crazy to carry a "Wolf .50-caliber black-powder single-shot rifle, police said. Black-powder rifles fire round bullets that are loaded one at a time, into the breech or the muzzle."
Did he have all the gear to actually shoot it?!

Modern day musket. He should have worn a bright red jacket and stood in a line with a dozen of his buddies.
I wonder if he had a powder horn?

He couldn't have meant any harm, he didn't have a drummer with him.
maybe he meant harm to one person every five minutes

Maybe he just wanted to get himself shot. People today are nuts.
