Texas Man Suing Local Shooting Range

The Dallas Chronicle reports on the story.

A Dallas-area man with a bullet in his back is suing a mile-away shooting range.

Michael Domin of Rowlett lives 1.2 miles from the Garland Public Shooting Range. Domin on Thursday sued for damages, alleging a stray .22 caliber bullet struck him June 12 while he was in his yard.

I'm sure when the judge stops laughing he'll calmly dismiss the case pointing out that its merit would depend upon there being no .22 caliber guns between the man's front yard and the shooting range in question, over a mile away.

What's your opinion? Is that going to be a hard case to win? Is this just one of the disadvantages of living in a gun-friendly environment? And it's a small price to pay for all that freedom, isn't it. It doesn't happen all that often that one is hit by a stray bullet.

What's your opinion? Couldn't it be argued that living like that, however slight the chances are, is the opposite of freedom? Couldn't it be said that not knowing if the gun owner next to you is qualified and responsible enough to ensure your safety is anything but freedom?

All the pro-freedom talk we keep hearing from the gun advocates, it's quite the opposite isn't it?

Please leave a comment.


  1. Freedoms don’t work that way. If they did, nobody would have any.

  2. Как говорилось на 6 лет занималсь аэробикой, шейпингом ну и все произвольные от этого... Два месяца назад уволился тренер и до сих пор замену не найдут, работает только тренажерный зал. Никогда раньше не занималась на тренажерах, мои мышцы имеют предрасположенность к перекачиванию (занималась с утяжелителями), с чего же стоит начать и имеет ли резон? Склонность к полноте есть и уже перерыв в занятиях 2 месяца, тренер там есть, но поскольку это все платное естественно он скажет что все будет поскольку нужно. Посовейтуйте у кого есть опыт! Мнения фитнес инструкторов тем более важно!!!!
