Police said the shot went through the wall and into the room next door. They said no one was hit because the guests in that room were out when it happened. The man, officers said fired the shot, is Leo Rusk, 69 of Greenville, SC. They do not plan to charge him.I say one of the first things we have to do is start taking gun stupidity more seriously, and not only when someone is hurt or killed. The sad truth is even in those cases the gun owner is often not charged with anything.
One strike you're out is what we need to apply to stupid gun owners. One of the best ways to determine stupidity is the old "bullet in the chamber" test. If evidence arises that someone was unaware that there was a round in the chamber, bam, he forfeits gun rights forever.
Is that too extreme? I say too bad. Accidents, which represent a smaller percentage of gun violence than wilful misuse, are the most preventable. And this is a good prevention program.
