WASHINGTON TIMES — Actor Wil Wheaton confused and angered a number of his fans Monday when he blamed a courthouse shooting on the National Rifle Association.
Three people died and one person was injured in St. Joseph, Michigan, Monday when a criminal at Berrien County Courthouse stole a deputy’s handgun and began firing.
Mr. Wheaton, perhaps best known for his work on the movie “Stand by Me” and the “Star Trek: The Next Generation” television series, posted a profanity-laced tweet as news broke.
“Welcome to America. It has been 0 days since our last mass shooting. #F**ktheNRA,” the actor wrote.
Witnesses said an inmate who was on his way to jail managed to steal the officer’s weapon, a local ABC affiliate reported. The shooter was killed on the scene.
