Too bad the women didn't have CCW!

I am pretty sure Rivercity is a free-fire, opps I mean a "Gun-Free Zone". They need to check their signs, as they should emit a magical fairy dust shield of protection, rendering all firearms into Candy Canes. Must not have had them plugged in.

Hope they find the gun. Those "boys" need to spend some time in the "big boy" jail thinking about their actions!
