Sounds to me that the kid could dish it until it came back to him. I believe it was a prank gone bad but kudos for the punishment because he needs to learn. I would of called the cops to if someone pointed gun at me.

He throws a dead skunk on her vehicle then snaps when she does the same? He has power issues. We'll be reading about him in the future...

This story is just too funny - I just sprayed coffee all over my keyboard. There is a whole lotta FAIL in that story. Thank you, Pioneer Press, for brightening my day a little. These stories about slack-jawed, northwoods hillbillies - keep 'em coming.

Did I get this right, the boy who leveled the gun at his sister's head was the person who brought the dead skunk into the picture in the first place, putting it on his sister's car? Then he threw a conniption and threatened people with a gun when the dead skunk was tossed at HIS truck? Have I got that right so far?

Why does this teenager with a short fuse and the common sense of a kindergartner have a firearm in his possession?! He should NEVER be allowed to carry again, period. My 7-year-old niece knows better than to point guns at people (she doesn't run with scissors, either) and she certainly knows that if she dishes it, she better be willing to take it.

This is pretty much the norm for this area. The stretch of Highway 53 between Cloquet and the Range makes Appalachia look like Paris. There are some seriously scary people there.

Sounds like on the range they just cock empty guns - citiots actually load the gun and fire it for things like this...

LOL! From what I understand, they are not supportive of two lesbian interracial couples having children there either!

Look in the mirror if you want to see the scariest person who ever posted on this site.
Remember honey, I will send the men in the white coats to pick you up and bring you back to electro-shock therapy again.
