(Newser) – A vicious attack on a mailman has three New York youths charged with criminal arms possession. Their weapon of choice? Snowballs, the New York Post reports—hard, icy ones. A 16-year-old and a pair of juveniles allegedly threw them at the carrier, then beat him when he yelled back. They also face assault, harassment, and menacing charges, police said.

Now, I really am surprised! With your slavish acceptance of the Second Amendment I expected them to use guns! Maybe the store was closed that day. GOD BLESS AMERICA!!
