Go back and reread the original post and it is pretty easy to say that any jerk with enough money to buy a gun can call himself a "hunter" and go out in the woods and start shooting things. I live near a hospital that is one of the most famous spinal cord injury rehab hospitals and they get hunters in there every year that sometimes wind up permanently paralyzed from getting shot in the spine or head. They come from all over the country.

I was in the military and law enforcement and was trained extensively on gun safety. When I talk with some of these hunters or look at the way they carry themselves while they have a weapon in their possesion, it is pretty obvious that many of them don't have a clue about how to handle a gun safely. As I said, all they need is a credit card and a gun store and they are good go.

it happens more often than you think. Why do you think some states have orange blazer vest laws?

Sure, even when most accidental shootings durning hunting seasons have nothing to do with shooting at anything that moves, it has more to do with unsafe handling. Keeping loaded guns in vehicles, not crossing fences properly and shooting someone in the hunting party, falling out of treestands, shooting themselves going up treestands, etc. RARELY is someone shot because of mistaken ID or shooting at anything that moves.

I feel bad for the dog i hope he recovers. It was easily avoidable, and I don't really care for people to jump on hunting for something like this.

It's called common sense... A lot of states lack it.


it is sad that the dog was shot, hope he recovers well!
