    I was accedently shot with a 12 gauge shot gun illegally loaded as a cop killer and was in worse off condition than this guy (still have a pellet between my heart and lungs)was also shot in my right temple about 1/2 inch from my eye and my right calf. This guy drove me to the hospital (not my family or ambulance) All I got was 1 day in the newspaper about the situation and 1 day for them to withdrawl that they had said my dad is the one that shot me... (he was not lol) No fair. I want to be all over the news too. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    christ ppl, i have had a close family member experiance something similar to this. while bird hunting an uncle of mine got peppered by a stupid kid who wasnt paying attention. i dont even think it made the local paper. it cost my uncle a few hours in the hospital. while my uncle was hurt, though not to bad i think the kid literaly feared for his life till my uncle got out of the hospital as my cousin wasnt taking the incident real well. all in all stuff happens, it happened cause it was a moment of stupidity thats all. i think the cops investigated it for all of 20 minutes and declared it an accident and walked away.

    what i do take issue with is something i didnt see brought up here, is the vice pres did not have the stamp to be bird hunting, in Montana and im sure in Texas too, that makes him guilty of poaching. i know i would be hauled off and make the papers if i were to do that. ignorence is no excuse.

    Great point rattler mt ! Ignorance is no excuse. Fine him and give him 30 days for being a poacher. NO wait community service and several TV adds on the finer points of getting hunting permits.

    I have found it all rather amusing. We have a Vice-Prez who shot somebody. lol Of course it isn't funny that the man was shot. I feel terrible for him and his family. I'm sure its been scary and miserable. But some of the jokes have been hilarious! Like Jay Leno showing a scene of the start of old TV show The Rifleman and **** Cheney's head was on the Rifleman. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]

    I do think it should have been simply mentioned as soon as was prudent with regard to the man's rescue and treatment. And Cheney should have simply made a statement. Other than that, its much ado about nothing. I do wonder however if in other hunting accidents, if the shooter gets charged with something. If so, Cheney should be charged as well and not given a pass because he's Vice-Prez.

    http://www.dfg.ca.gov/ihea/hea1996.html, here are some stats from 1997 on hunting accidents. Take a peek.

    By the way, Clinton did get caught shooting a gun in the White House! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Doesn't hurt as much as saying 'airsoft gun?'! Now here's what concerns me. We let the VP go hunting where in reality, HE could have been the one shot and possibly killed. Worse yet, what if the prez was in on this. The thought of the '**** shoots into Bush' jokes is unbearable. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]
