Utah Lawful Gun Owner and Possible Concealed Carry Permit Holder Fires Shots in the Air

A Uintah County man fired multiple shots during a weekend party in an effort to drive off a group of party crashers, according to sheriff's deputies.
Deputies responded to a house in the area and found a large party under way. They questioned people in the house and learned that several individuals at the party had not been invited and had been told to leave by the homeowner, Donny Mendoza.

"After numerous attempts to get these people to leave, Mendoza retrieved a pistol and fired multiple shots in the air as intimidation," Cheshire said.  

Deputies estimate there were 30 people inside the house and on the property at the time the shots were fired. Alcohol use was a factor in the incident, Cheshire said.
Mendoza, 29, was arrested and booked into the Uintah County Jail for investigation of multiple weapons violations.
 

We can presume this guy was a lawful gun owner right up until the time he did this reckless and stupid behavior. But, did he have a concealed carry permit?  No one knows because it has nothing to do with anything. 
You see, committing a crime with a gun counts regardless of whether you have a permit to carry concealed or not. That's why they don't check and that's why whenever the pro-gun crowd tell us how statistically safe the concealed carry permit holders are it's a lie.
