A Claiborne County, Tennessee, sheriff's deputy who fired his gun into traffic on Interstate 75 for no apparent reason has been sentenced to 11 months and 29 days unsupervised probation and a $2 fine after pleading guilty to misdemeanor reckless endangerment. Noah Arnwine must also perform community service and take a gun safety course. Arnwine and fellow Deputy Cody Lankford were returning from an inmate transport with Lankford driving when Arnwine pointed a gun towards the windshield of their vehicle and fired a shot into rush-hour traffic. Then assistant-chief deputy Mark Ellis, who investigated the matter, recommended Arnwine be fired and charged with a felony. Instead, Sheriff Bobby Brooks kept Arnwine on but later forced him out over a struggle with a jail inmate nine months later, just as the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation began an investigation of the gunshot.

Which leaves the U.S. without a major party even slightly inclined to leave people alone to manage their own affairs.
The former Trump attorney's election fraud lawsuits feature the same sort of dubious evidence that has failed to impress courts across the country.
Is this the Supreme Court’s next big gun rights case?
