Perry Jr. was initially charged with two felonies before pleading guilty to a gross misdemeanor.
Politicians in D.C. and St. Paul have spent a lot of time recently talking about banning semi-automatic firearms in hopes of curbing violent crime -- but as the story of Kenneth Perry Jr. suggests, where there's a will, there's a way.

Perry Jr., a 26-year-old Cloquent resident, could face a year behind bars after pleading guilty last week to assaulting his sister with a can of beans, of all things.

From the Pine Journal:
On June 29, 2012, the Cloquet Police Department was dispatched to a home on the 1500 block of Avenue C regarding a domestic disturbance. When they responded, they learned that Kenneth Perry had thrown a can of chili beans at his sister's head, causing a gash in her forehead that required several stitches.

"The can of chili beans is considered a dangerous weapon when thrown from close range," the complaint said.
Perry Jr. pleaded guilty to gross misdemeanor domestic assault, which normally results in a stayed jail sentence. But because Perry Jr. pleaded guilty to three counts of domestic assault in 2008, he could face up to a year behind bars.

Chili beans apparently can pack a punch in more ways than one, if you catch our drift.

Story headline is misleading. It's discouraging to see so much of media doing this.

When will the national conversation begin on banning beans?? This kind of violence is outrageous! The National Bean Association is a terrorist group, clearly they should know that beans will be used to kill people!
