Looks like these hunters did not properly consider the distance that their ammo could travel.
So.......which is more important? The physical safety of these students, their right NOT to be shot accidentally (or deliberately) by someone with a gun- or the rights of gun nuts to have their penis substitutes?
This is Texas, so it won't be the lives of the students that come first.
Would it surprise anyone to learn that the town of Edinburg, Texas is in the county adjoining the one where Vice President Cheney shot a fellow hunter in the face?
Our prayers are with the students.
From MSNBC.com and the AP:
2 students shot at Texas middle schoolEDINBURG, Texas -- Two students were shot Monday at a south Texas middle school and authorities say hunters may be to blame.
The shooting happened Monday afternoon while the students were trying out for a basketball team at an outdoor court at Harwell Middle School in Edinburg.
One boy was in critical condition with a bullet embedded in an organ. The other was stable and awaiting X-rays.
Hidalgo County Sheriff Lupe Trevino said investigators believe the shots may have come from hunters on adjacent farm property.
Deputies were interviewing hunters.
Trevino said the shots did not come from anywhere on campus and were not the result of a drive-by.
The victims were a 7th-grader and an 8th-grader. They were playing basketball when they were hit by gunfire coming from a brushy area near the court, Edinburg Consolidated Independent School District spokesman Gilbert Tagle told KGBT-TV. One of the students was shot in the back, the other just under the armpit, Tagle said.
Edinburg is about 50 miles northwest of Brownsville.
