I read in the USA Today p aper that a woman named Tina Owens had fire a shot to protect her home from intruders (tresspassers) and accidentally shot her grandson
Could you tell me why your prosecutor doesn't have the police searching for the intruders, so he can charge them with felony murder?
They were committing a crime that resulted in a death
Do you think that because your police can't find the ones responsible (and allow them another chance ever night they are not in jail) that it is right to charge TINA?
If you don't think so, could call your prosecutor ?

There was no evidence of intruders. She fired shots because she said she heard a noise outside. She went outside, didn't see anything, but fired several shots to scare away whatever it was she thought was making the noise. One of the shots hit her grandson (who was in his home 200 yards away) in the chest, killing him. She's being charged because her actions were negligent. It's people like her who give gun owners a bad name and provide ammunition for anti-gun people. One of the first things my grandfather taught me about guns is that you NEVER fire a weapon unless you are sure of your target. The reason I no longer hunt is because of asshats like Owens. Too many asshats in the woods who start blasting away when they hear a noise, without ever taking time to identify their target.

Although sad...this moron gives responsible firearms owners a bad name.

Sorry, I disagree. Stupid people should be banned from owning guns. And this woman is a stupid person. If you hear "a noise" outside at night and walk out and start blasting away without knowing what you're shooting at, then you're an idiot and should not be allowed to own a firearm. George Zimmerman, while perhaps not stupid, should not be allowed to own a gun. If Zimmerman didn't have a gun he never would have gotten out of his truck and confronted Travon Martin.
