gun owners are just so stupid.

simply owning a gun greatly increases your chances of being shot, but each and every one of these morons thinks they are somehow too smart to have something bad happen to them or their loved ones via their own weapon.



morons.

Deputies say she was walking in a field when a man hunting nearby mistook her for a deer and shot her once with a pistol.

Ignorant gun question. How close do you have to be to shoot someone with a pistol, compared to a hunting rifle?

I’m not a hunter, but I know many who are. Some carry a pistol In the event that they need to track and kill a wounded animal. Others I know carry a knife for this purpose. None that I know would take their first shot at a healthy target with a pistol.

A bullet can travel almost a mile, so not that close. That guy should tried for murder.

The bullet from a 9mm, for example, is still effective and deadly at 200 yards. Actually hitting something with any degree of accuracy that you are aiming at with a pistol is probably 50 yards.

Your average hunting rifle, say a 30.06, fires a round that is deadly at well over 1,000 yards. Your average yokel with a decent scope could fairly accurately hit a target at 300-400 yards.

I’d bet that she was within 50 yards of this murderer. Even though I’m not a hunter myself, I’m pretty much surrounded by people who do, and while I imagine that some hunters carry pistols for whatever, I’ve never heard of a hunter actually killing something with a pistol that they were hunting. For one, accuracy with a pistol is virtually non-existent past 50 yards. Second, a pistol round is highly unlikely to knock a deer down like a rifle shot would. If a deer was shot with a pistol it would likely run away and the hunter would never find it.

So this guy was either drunk or is a psychopath.

Thanks. Yea, killing effectiveness aside, accuracy was what I was thinking wouldn't make sense at all.

Not surprised in the least by this. I mean, if nothing changed after Sandy Hook, not sure a mere tragedy is enough to get the leeches in Congress to eschew NRA money. My imagination is insufficient to envision what it would take for change to happen.

Authorities have arrested a 69-year-old man who they say was planning a mass shooting at an Islamic center in Jacksonville, Florida.

Bernandino Gawala “Nandie” Bolatete faces charges of knowingly receiving and possessing a silencer without registering it as required by federal law, according to the authorities.


According to police, he told the undercover officer that his health was declining due to kidney problems and he wanted to “shoot up” a mosque before he died.

“I just want to give these freaking people a taste of their own medicine … they are the ones who are always doing these shootings,” Bolatete wrote in a Nov. 14 text message, authorities said.


Bolatete told the undercover officer he owned several guns, including an AR-15 rifle, police said. He also allegedly had planned the attack down to where he intended to start shooting – from inside the mosque’s tower.

“It will be great,” Bolatete told the undercover officer, according to the criminal complaint.

I'm not even going to post it here because it's that disturbing, but the video Shaun King posted of the Daniel Shaver shooting was one of the most horrifying things I've ever seen.

Cop was acquitted yesterday of second degree murder.
