    The person who fired the bullet was well trained in the use of guns. Ordinary people shouldn't be allowed to own guns. Any rebuttal quoting the Second Amendment should quote it in its entirety.

    you cant get past stupidity. not all police officers are well trained in guns and he broke the #2 rule "be sure of your target and whats behind it". ive come across ALOT of police officers that know MUCH less about guns than i do.

    Yeah, if he was so well trained then maybe he wouldn't be SHOOTING a snake in a BIRDHOUSE.

    Shooting a snake in a birdhouse is exactly like saying "There's a rat! Get the flamethrower!" Honestly.

    Speaking of honesty, I didn't believe this entirely, until I saw it on the news (I forgot if it was CNN or local.)

    To the person who said regular people whould not own a gun is a crock of poop. Sounds to me like this well "trained" officer had no common sence and very little training. I have not been trained in guns yet, but I do know that you should go for a body shot on someone instead of a head shot. Shooting at a birdhouse with a hand gun is just that. Going for a head shot with a small caliber round. Now a little boy is dead because of it. He sounds almost as stupid as the guy who finds his gun cocked and pulls the trigger to uncock it or the one who shoots himself cleaning his gun. No excuse. He was probably some brainless Barney Fife. I hope he goes to jail for a long time and the family sues the crap out of the depatment for letting a brainless moron work on their police force. Snakes have a purpose and would rather be left alone than hurt someone. Call in he experts to get them removed if they are in your house. Remember we excroched on their habitat. They are not encroching on ours.

    Plenty of shooting gets done where a hunter really has no idea where a missed shot will go. Like lightning bolts and meteorites, almost every wayward bullet or pellet lands harmlessly. Even in a congested place like Detroit, where idiots fire thousands of rounds into the air every New Years Day or whatever holiday it is that inspires them. It's amazing how few people get hit.

    Even if you got hit in the head by a bullet falling from the sky it wouldn't kill you.

    if shot perfectly straight up, prolly not but 99.99999999% are shot at an arc........dont take much of a deviation from 90 degrees to make a bullet potentially lethal for miles........

    If its at any angle greater than 45 it wont kill. Gravity is a conservative force, and will act to pull the bullet down at 9.8m/s2 regardless of direction. And "deadly for miles" is an overstatement in most cases. I can only think of a few rounds (that are in "common use") that can go over a mile. Even a .22 might not kill you if you get hit in the head point blank. I saw a guy on tv that got hit 4 times in the chest and once in the head and survived...until his attacker shot him in the head again with a high-power rifle.
