Christain Devaux had reportedly done it before.

A 25-year-old Connecticut man faces several charges after firing shots in his house at what he told police may have been a ghost. Christain Devaux of Tolland is due in court on Sept. 11 on charges including the illegal discharge of a firearm, making a false statement to police, second-degree reckless endangerment, misusing an emergency call, and disorderly conduct, per the AP.

Man Charged After Shooting at 'Ghost' in His Home

The drops of blood on the floor give those ghost away every time; what type was it - '0' positive? Most bullets will go right though walls and could kill or injure others in neighboring apartments or houses. Besides; how did he think he was going to stop a ghost? Doesn't everybody know that you can only use leaf blowers on them!

And yet apparently there is no legal category for "too stupid to own a firearm".

Because he believes in ghosts, the man is "stupid"?

What was he supposed to use?... we all know Proton Packs don't really exist.

Well ... if he wasn't sure about what he was shooting at, but shot anyway, that's pretty stupid. Hopefully he doesn't have any kids that might come into the house late at night.

Same thing happened at Summerwind Mansion in Wisconsin:

Shooting at a ghost is a waste of ammunition.
You also run the risk of creating another ghost
if a living person is in the line of fire.

No. He's stupid bc he thinks a bullet will stop a ghost.

That's like Scooby Doo 101.

Police say Devaux put two bullet holes in his wall on July 26, initially reporting the incident as an attempted break in. He later told police that he is a paranormal investigator and that he believes the intruder was actually a spirit.
He made himself looks someone not normal. I guess he was very frightened. The voice he heard is not necessarily came from paranormal activity. But because basically, he is a paranormal investigator, so he is into these phenomenons, he might be geek about it. Furthermore, I strongly think he lives alone. He might be affected by horror movies where an actor shot a ghost and overcome him. Horror movies have a lot of fiction. Anyway the situation he described_according to the link_ doesn't deserve to use a gun.
If he heard a sound and thought someone,whatever, was trying to break into his room/home, then called police due to fear without saying what he said above. It would be more acceptable than to say he is a paranormal investigator and though ghost in the wall and used his gun against him. Tomorrow he could shot human being in the dark thinking that he is a ghost, what would he do then?

My advice to this person :

- You really HAVE TO STOP being a paranormal investigator.
- I don't think it's a good idea to own a gun, too.
- If you live in a hunted home. Simply, move from it.
- If you easily got scared or easily jump to paranormal explanations as the FIRST reason, don't live alone.
- To believe in some paranormal phenomenons is OK and reasonable, but don't act in an abnormal way.
