Oh, look! Another responsible gun owner gets drunk and sad, pulls out his guns and starts shooting up the neighborhood after getting into an argument with someone.

And he did it with children in the house. Viva la Second Amendment!

The Barrow County Sheriff Office SWAT team was called to the scene and eventually talked the alleged gunman, Steven Fincher, 29, into surrendering. Winder police would said Fincher recently lost his brother, and was involved in an argument while drinking with a family friend.

Three homes were hit by gunfire but no one was injured. Police evacuated several residents in the neighborhood during the rampage. They said Fincher's mother, sister and four young children were in the home and were evacuated safely while the negotiations took place.

Police recovered several weapons and ammunition from the home, including an AR-style rifle and 45 caliber pistol police said he fired at the neighbor's houses.

Fincher is being held at the Barrow County Detention Center and is charged with 6-counts of Aggravated Assault, 6-counts of Cruelty to Children, 3-counts of Criminal Damage to Property and 1-count of Terroristic Threats.

According to the story, Fincher recently lost his brother and had been involved in an argument with a family friend. Gosh, I'm sorry for his loss, but is that any reason to shoot the hell out of his neighbors' houses?
