Representative Wintle was arrested on Saturday after he allegedly pulled a loaded .22-caliber pistol from his waistband and threatened a man outside a Dunkin’ Donuts in Waterville, police said. Wintle made his initial court appearance on Monday on charges of carrying a concealed weapon and criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon.

The judge on Monday ordered Wintle to undergo a mental evaluation.

Fellow lawmakers indicated that Wintle’s behavior had grown increasingly bizarre in the days and weeks before his arrest. He since has been barred from the State House and is not allowed access to firearms.
Yep. One person goes nuts (becomes mentally ill) and the govt decides to cancel everyone's RIGHT mentioned in the U.S. Constitution.

The 2nd amendment prohibits the govt from regulating guns. That's its only purpose.
