A Bullet From The Sky
It's these type of incidents that will lead to the downfall of gun rights for all of us.
A quote from Sally, a Westerville, Ohio Resident in the remarks section of the on-line article.
"It's the kind of thing that can happen where any moron with $100 can get a gun. I'm sure this is not what our founding fathers had in mind. It's too late now. Our nation is an armed camp"Enough sentiment like this will give anti-gun legislators all the ammo they need to take our rights away from us.
Shooting is a fun and enjoyable hobby and recreation only when proper safety and precautions are taken. Ms. Sally is sadly right to some degree. Just because somebody is able to own a firearm doesn't necessarily mean that they should. It is a big responsibility and comes not without its share of dangers. As long as you act responsibility and don't let the stupid genes take over everything is usually fine. Unfortunately modern medical science has been unable to remove stupidity from our gene pools so we have to do it ourselves. Take the time to teach others around you proper gun safety. Let them know that even a .22 can travel for more than a mile when fired.
I remember celebratory firing in the air with rifles and pistols being all the rage when I was overseas by the locals but this is not there and I hope to God it never is.
