The big news in gun blogging land is that Cheney shot someone while hunting. As a gun blogger, I guess I’m obligated to mention it. So, there it is. I really don’t have much to say about it but lots of others do:
Xrlq says: Jim and Sarah Brady have pretty well thrown away any pretense of (1) not wanting to ban hunting or (2) being Republicans. The story of Cheney’s hunting accident had barely broke when both of them implied Dick Cheney was a would-be murderer.
The other Xrlq says: Another “friend” of gun rights makes a fool of himself (and by extension, all of us) by forgetting the rules of safe gun handling.
Aunt B. says: Gun nuts, what’s the proper etiquette in a situation like this? Does the guy who got shot now get a free shot at the vice president?
t3rrbile says: you have to know what is behind what you are shooting at.
JR says: Who hasn’t been peppered by birdshot on a bird hunting trip? Nobody? Me neither. That’s kind of what I thought first but I’ve never known of anyone being peppered going to the hospital.
Cowboy Blob says: Vice President Cheney was hunting with an itty-bitty girly man 28 gauge. That may have saved this dude’s life.
Xavier says: Rule #4.
