Dad Legally Brings Gun To Trampoline Park, Cops Called (Video)

An unidentified dad brought a handgun to the Sky Zone trampoline park in Roswell, Georgia, on March 19 (video below).

The father had the weapon in a holster as he bounced around at the kid-friendly attraction, prompting the general manager to call the police, reports WSB-TV.

According to the manager, the man refused to store the gun in his car, and so police were called.

The man, who chose to remain anonymous, told the news station that he arms himself to protect his children, even when sleeping. The gun-toting father said he has a concealed carry permit, and the trampoline attraction did not have a "no weapons" sign.

Police said it is the responsibility of the business to post a sign that bans guns, and that the man didn't break any laws.

"I guess the guy felt that since there wasn’t a sign up, that he could carry his gun in there," resident Vincent Freeman told the news station.

"The way the laws are now, I don’t suppose he was [within his rights to carry a gun]," resident Georgia Kraff added. "I don’t think it was a wise decision on his part."

Judith Forgoston, a parent, stated: "I think there is no reason to have a gun in a place where there’s kids, and definitely no reason to have a gun while you’re jumping."

The manager is not planning on posting any signs banning guns.

In more gun news, one person was killed, and 15 people were injured after shots were fired inside a Cincinnati nightclub on March 26, reports WLWT.

O'Bryan Spikes, 27, died in the shooting at the Cameo nightclub, which police believe involved multiple people firing weapons. So far, no one has been arrested, but police are reviewing surveillance video from inside the club.

Of the injured people, two victims are in critical condition, three are reportedly stable, while four were treated and released.

Assistant Police Chief Paul Neudigate stated: "We are in the middle of a very horrific situation that occurred at the nightclub with multiple victims."

"You have innocent people shot, just for going out to have a good time," Mayor John Cranley said of the shooting. "That's totally unacceptable. It's totally evil."

Councilwoman Yvette Simpson added: "There's no reason that anyone should ever feel like they could go into a club, shoot a club up, because they're upset with someone who disrespected them or otherwise hurt them earlier in the day. So I continue to say, yes, guns kill people, but people kill people."
