Never Bring A Contractor’s Level To A Sword Fight

This must have been surprising to the guy with the contractor’s level

Parking dispute gets medieval as men battle with sword, 4-foot level, cops say

A neighborhood parking dispute in Somerset County turned bloody after a man pulled a sword from his car and began slashing at another man who was swinging a 4-foot contractor’s level, authorities said.

The battle unfolded around 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday in the area of Knopf Street and North 9th Avenue in Manville, according to the Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office.

Jared Razzano, 35, the alleged swordsman, faces multiple charges including second-degree aggravated assault and was taken to the Somerset County jail. (snip)

The 40-year-old was carrying a four-foot contractor’s level when the verbal dispute over the parking space near Razzano’s home turned physical, authorities said.

Razzano was struck multiple times with the level, “resulting in several bruises and abrasions to his back, face, arm and leg,” Robertson said.

Razzano then removed a sword from his car and “retaliated by slashing the victim several times with the sword. The slashing caused the victim serious bodily injuries to his head and arm,” Robertson said.

Someone in the NJ.com comments wonder what the 40 year old, who has not been named, and, weirdly, not been charged with anything, was thinking when Razzano pulled out the sword. I’m figuring it was like this

And, this being NJ

In addition to aggravated assault, Razzano faces charges of third-degree possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, and fourth-degree unlawful possession of a weapon.

Interesting. The gun-grabbers tell us we should have weapons like when the Bill of Rights was passed, yet, they ban those same weapons.
