Gun nut tasered after assaulting cops and heckling dad of girl shot to death (video)

If you want to understand why American has a violence problem, you need go no further than this video of Daniel Musso, a proud defender of the Second Amendment bullying and heckling the father of a girl shot to death by her husband, then assaulting the police and being tasered in response.

This took place yesterday in Concorde, New Hampshire.

It may come as little surprise that shortly after, police went to question the man, he “struggled” with the police for a minute and a half, according to the local news, and the police ended up having  to taser the man to subdue him.  I’m not usually a fan of tasering, but in this case I’m happy to make an exception.

Here’s the video of the heckling and bullying:

Here’s a short background on the story, then the video:

Yesterday afternoon [June 18, 2013] a group of hecklers and bullies try to shout down the father of a gun violence victim. John Cantin’s daughter Melissa was shot and killed by her estranged husband in Manchester, NH in 2009. John was also shot, but he survived. John refused to be silenced. Instead, he bravely continued to share his daughter’s story and call for common-sense legislation to reduce gun violence.

Here’s what the local news reported on the incident:

After numerous interjections, Musso [the heckler] decided to walk away, but Concord police had been called. When officers began talking to him, Musso initiated physical contact with police, [local reporter] Sexton said.

Officers struggled to subdue Musso for about a minute and a half, Sexton said, before they had to use a stun gun on him.

The Manchester Union Leader backs up to the cops’ story:

Witnesses said Daniel Musso, 52, of Brentwood was asked by police to move. He placed his hand on an officer, was tasered and arrested.

Police said Musso was charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and two counts of simple assault.

Here’s the video of the gun-lover being arrested, and more from Raw Story:
