In response, Anderson retrieved a gun from the employee break room and shot Theodat.

Theodat’s mother expressed concerns about his mental health, noting his recent discontinuation of medication led to paranoia and distance from reality.

Theodat’s has been evaluated by a court-appointed psychologist and ordered to Bridgewater State Hospital for further assessment.

He faces charges for assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, disturbing the peace, disorderly conduct, and default warrant. 

Anderson, who had prior run-ins with the law, was remanded to jail without bail.

He now faces “charges of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, discharging a firearm within 500 feet of a building, possession of a loaded firearm during a felony, and improper storage of a firearm,” according to CBS Boston.

If Anderson had a clean legal record, he could potentially have claimed self-defense under the Second Amendment.

    Yeah, this is why you carry concealed. When Anderson removed himself from the threat (successfully, we assume) if there were no other lives in danger when he returned with this “improperly stored” weapon, then he has no rights under self-defense law; he is the aggressor. Had he dispatched the threat immediately when he was attacked with the knife, he would have had all of the normal people in America behind him.

    So…Mr. Anderson was threatened by a customer with a knife, but removed himself from the threat by going to the break room. Then, he returns to shoot the person who threatened him with the knife. Mr. Anderson will be found guilty of serious charges.

    Anderson removed himself from the threat, but returned with a gun, which now makes him the attacker.

    Is it written in Massachusetts’ law , “ Thou shall not defend thyself “ ?

    Discharging a firearm within 500 ft of a building? Boy they have all the self defense claims covered. Good shoot but… and he can’t claim self defense because he had been arrested before. What? It’s getting to the point that carrying a gun and using it against the Democrats thugs will get you thrown in jail and the the let go. Remanded without bail. Unbelievable.

    This is why we need more and more medication. Hopefully Big Pharma will soon develope a pill that will compel us to take all our other medications because when we stop things go really bad really quickly. Medication to treat us for the side affects of other medication is our only hope.

    “Theodat’s mother expressed concerns about his mental health, noting his recent discontinuation of medication”
    translation: he needed to score some illegal drugs at any cost
    and once again the victim is the bad guy…….
