Whoops I made a mistake. Apparently it's working for some but not for others (due to not being subscibers?) so I opened it again. My apologies.

Pretty sick running around boozed up shooting at helmets that you think look like a skunk.

Lucky for the cyclist the dumb-ass is a bad shot.

Also lucky it was only a .22 if it had been a larger caliber even a superficial wound could have been much worse.

I wish the founders had put some sort of intelligence requirement into the Second Amendment. Of course, it is hard to complain about their lack of foresight since we kill and injure far more people with our cars and there isn't any intelligence requirement for a driver's license.

That's kind of a stinky question to ask in the first place.

Real question is why wouldn't he? (just not drunk)

A few years ago I read a story in my local newspaper about a person who shot an elk and only wanted the trophy. He cut off the head and proceeded to carry it out of the woods on his shoulders. Well, a second hunter got a bead on that elk and successfully bagged it. The story didn't say what the second hunter did with the trophies.

Sounds like quick justice for the illegal hunting by the first so called hunter.

Actually at the time there was. There was an article in Analog or a similar Science Fiction magazine, I think by Jerry Pournelle that made a big point that at the time it required something like 17 steps done correctly and in the proper order to fire a musket. Mess up any one of them and the gun was more apt to blow up in your face than hurt who or what ever you were trying to shoot.

There are times I think that self correcting feature would be nice.

An old favorite of mine. Grew up listening to that record.
