    I think she will carry this with her for a long time. We had a drive by shooting at our house in 1964, two of my family members were hit. they missed me (it was a stupid thing those kids did, not a drug or gang thing--we were totally innocent). In 1978 we built a house that also had a large front window facing the street. It was probably 10 years before I was comfortable in the living room with the curtains open after dark--24 years after the shooting.

    That was what I was thinking. I think with 22 HP with 5 shots into head and chest should have made him dead.

    I saw on the news yesterday morning, a farmer, who had already had problems with equipment theft from his land, happened to be out walking one of his access roads with his mother, whilst carrying his 12 bore shotgun.
    He came across a van, being loaded up with equipment &2 guys.
    1 guy ran off, but the other tried to run him & his mother over. He knocked the mother down, reversed & was trying again for the farmer so the farmer shout out the windscreen, at the empty passenger side.
    Police investigated & locked up the farmer & his mother for 24 hours whilst investigating then about 6 months of more investigations too!
    The thief? He got a £100 fine!
    Ridiculous the way things work here!
    I think the best method would have been what you guys say - shoot, bury, shut up!

    Are you saying that the Thief who committed what we call over here Felonious Assault with a Motor Vehicle. got a 100 pound fine ? by the way that is about $160 for those of us conversion challenged. Back where I live that is a felony and would have resulted in many years in prison, depending on if anyone was killed or not, but even if no death, it is a very serious charge. You all have really got things messed up over there.

    Sounds like the kind of stuff we'd wind up with if Obama and the liberals have their way.

    Take the assault on the Second Amendment seriously. No more laws restricting the right to bear arms.

    In 1938 the German government under the Nazis and Hitler passed a law that outlawed Jewish ownership of guns. By 1941 Auschwitz and the other death camps were in full operation exterminating six to eleven million Jews and other enemies of the state.

    Channel 9 11 O'clock News in DC (CBS) just covered this story tonight. Better late than never I guess.
