Conservative Firing Line: Springfield, Ohio – Ok, this manipulation of the public by news media and anti-gunners needs to stop right now. It’s firmly gone out of control. A Springfield resident called 911 on April 5 because they thought a neighbor had a gun. It was a bassoon …a musical instrument…you know, one that makes sounds other than “pew pew pew.”
Eric Barga teaches bassoon at his old high school, Kenton Ridge High School. After he completed his teaching for the day, he drove to Covenant Presbyterian Church in preparation for bell choir practice. But he was about a half hour early, as practice usually started at 6:30 p.m..
So, he sat on the hood of his car and just started playing scales. You know, the “doe ray me” kind of thing, also definitely not “pew pew pew.”
But someone called 911 and told officers there was a white male with a rifle sitting on his trunk in front of the church.
