I thought Dick Cheney was the one who had the hunting accident? Didn't he shoot someone?

"I thought Dick Cheney was the one who had the hunting accident? Didn't he shoot someone?"

that is true but you know how the repubs. Like to use stuff they did to talk trash about dems. It never makes sense to me. It's like fox news pointing out Biden couldn't think of a website but then remembers it and they have mis spelled words on the screen. It's humerous.

Well if he brought the gun there it's a good thing he shot himself in the foot. I can only think of one reason to bring a gun to camp. This incident could have saved many lives.

Kerry shot himself, in the foot, then put himself up, for the purple heart medal, for his self inflicted "combat wound".

I'm wondering what the kid was doing there in the first place. According to the website, scheduled summer camps ended 2 weeks ago.
The camp might have been leased, but unless he was trespassing, whoever was 'responsible' may be hurting worse than the kid's foot.

The kid learned (I hope) a lesson in firearm safety the painful way. I'm glad the outcome wasn't worse.

1.) Treat every fiream as if it is loaded.
2.) Always keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction.
3.) Keep your finger outside the trigger guard until your sights are on the target
4.) Be sure of your target and what lies behind it.

You can only think of one reason? Everyone that owns a gun is a mass murderer? What about target shooting or hunting squirrels? I don't own or condone gun use/abuse but come on. Either way he is a moron and got what he deserves.

...while your heros Dick Cheney and George Bush were busy dodging the draft.

I don't agree with a lot of what John Kerry stands for but it blows me away when asswipes like you attack his military record. Democrat or Republican the guy got in there (volunteered if I am correct) and fought for his country. He has more balls than Dick, George or you will ever have.

Where was the man from? What was he doing at the camp? It's past camp season, isn't it?
