Story (http://www.wptz.com/cnn-news/17898942/detail.html)

A guy in Vermont celebrated the Obama victory by shooting his Rifle in his home 18 times with several bullets passing into his neighbor's homes. At least no one was hurt, but this is the kind of stupidity that will get our Second Amendment rights destroyed.

Let's be clear: I'm not criticizing his choice of candidate here (I don't like it, but I'm not going to comment on that on THR.) This is just about responsible firearms ownership and use. We don't need this kind of behavior amongst our citizens.

I wish the DA could charge him with attempted murder.

****, last thing we need with a gun grabber in office. Hope and pray against an excuse for a kneejerk gun ban.

I wonder how many walls it went through?

...he fired a Russian-made .22 caliber rifle -- similar to the ones used in biathlon competitions -- in celebration of Obama's victory, police said.

What a moron. How could you possibly think that was ok?

I know some people who live on that street. I'm glad no one was hurt.

Stupid is as Stupid does. Indidvidual stupidity, hope it doesn't result in group punishment.

He may have also been high, and just needed an excuse not to get busted for drugs too.

Come 11:00 last night, the animals were all outside in my neighborhood shooting into the air.

You'd have thought we already lived in the third-world nation we're about to become.

It doesn't count as Vermont, if they live in the Champlain Valley.:neener:
Or south of Johnson.:evil:

True, we need to keep our worrying pointed in the proper direction - at lunatics like this guy. Unfortunately, guys like this are the reason certain politicians don't trust you or I with a gun. I'm not saying the mistrust is justified, but there you go.
