Maybe you should actually try reading what I wrote because that is not at all what I said and not what others defending him said. Not sure what posts you are reading.As many of us have stated earlier in many posts, nobody is saying this should not have been taken seriously. In fact, everyone has been saying over and over again that it should be taken seriously. You are arguing against imaginary foes. And for some reason hurling random insults at them instead of arguing in a mature manner.
To repeat what every defender of John has said over and over again: WE UNDERSTAND WHY THE SITUATION HAD TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY. All we are saying is that John is a good guy, and the fact that there was a gun at his home, like the homes of 30-45% of people in Knox county, is not proof that he intended anything. We are simply trying to stem the rush to judgment that was occurring on this discussion board.

So I hope that people are cooling down and realizing that miscommunication is the worst and happens on all sides.
On a side note, the dumbest thing ever heard, mentioned earlier, about people catching schizophrenia from a cat...
It may not be true, but guess what? It's something that is being studied. Look up information about schizophrenia and Toxoplasma gondii (a parasite).
Actually a pretty interesting field of research, and while I'm not saying it's necessarily true, it's something.
Important lesson: not everything you overhear is true, but it's the only amount of information you have to work with at the time. Jump to conclusions? Sure, if someone says you can catch schizophrenia from a cat- but you might miss out on something cool if you disregard it. If someone makes a threat? It's a hard judgment to decide what's a joke, but you might miss out on something important if you disregard it as well.
Life's a gamble. Who knew?
