Why was this “responsible gun owner” allowing the gun to point at another person living creature while he was mucking about with the magazine? One more time, “accidental” is not a synonym for “negligent.”

One of those “responsible gun owners” was just horsin’ around . . . .

Jasper, a 9-year-old horse, was grazing in an Oregon pasture over the weekend when shots were fired at the animal — hitting him in the face and rear thigh, according to authorities.

(snip)

“He was limping, dragging that leg — it was really swollen. He just had marginal interest in food,” said Kelly Nelson, the owner of the boarding facility that cares for Jasper, according to KOIN. “His eyes just looked really dull and like he was in a lot of pain.”

And, in related news, politeness is going to the dogs.

Bringing new meaning to the term, “gun lover” . . . .

Shinault reportedly told officers that he and Williams been taking turns rubbing the gun along each other’s bodies.

He said Williams first rubbed the gun along his body. Afterwards, he did the same to her, but she grabbed the gun when it was pointed at her chest and it went off, the Tampa Bay Times reported.

Shinault would later change his story and told detectives that he had been pulling the trigger and it clicked as he rubbed Williams with the gun.

Politeness takes practice.

On approaching the area of the report, sheriff’s deputies ended up finding themselves in the line of fire.

“The deputies actually had to take cover behind some logs,” Ryan said, uncertain if they were being deliberately targeted. The officers called out and eventually made contact with the group firing weapons, located about a mile east of the cemetery.

Turns out “several” people were target shooting from private property using high-powered rifles, Ryan said, and as of Saturday evening, authorities were still on the scene, investigating. A woman was sitting in the vehicle at the cemetery that was struck — in the hood — and Ryan noted that being Memorial Day weekend, more and more people may be going to cemeteries on Sunday and Monday.

Yet more evidence that “responsible gun owner” is not a thing.
