What stands be­hind the tar­get

Rappahannock News - - COMMENT -

Ev­ery­thing points at this time [“Man killed at deer hunt,” Jan. 4] to it be­ing ‘an ac­ci­dent.’ At some point, a gun ‘ac­ci­dent’ is not an ac­ci­dent. It is care­less­ness. Any­one pulling a trig­ger is legally re­spon­si­ble for know­ing what he is shoot­ing at, and what is be­hind that tar­get.

When I was 11 years old, a friend of mine had killed an 8 point buck, and was lean­ing over it, dress­ing it out, when some fool shot him in the back of the head be­cause ‘I saw move­ment, and shot at it.’

That, my friends, is crim­i­nal.
