Ah yes, another Responsible Gun Owner provides 2nd Amendment freedom to a golfer...

Per AP, "Police in Glynn County say a man has been charged with reckless conduct in an accidental shooting at a coastal Georgia golf course.

Police say a 70-year-old Sea Island woman was shot in her stomach Sunday morning and is hospitalized in stable condition. Authorities say 65-year-old Edward Johnson called emergency dispatchers saying he was shooting at squirrels and accidentally wounded someone.

Authorities say the woman is recovering from surgery and is in stable condition."

I'm sure she'll thank him for her freedom and pay his $25 dollar reckless conduct fine.

Golf anyone?

And how many people died of no fault of their own yesterday while riding or driving in a car which is not even a right?

Nothing 'responsible', or legal, about it.

Nice misrepresentation of the facts. The man was hunting squirrels and not golfers. Evidently he did get a hole in one of them.

Moreover, he did the responsible thing and called the police to tell them he had done it by accident.

Careless? Perhaps. Irresponsible? Apparently not.

Okay, PETA freaks, let's hear about squirrelacide.

Perhaps he was making authentic Brunswick stew.

Jay Girl & Rosy Palm: Obviously neither of you two "Responsible Gun Owners" has a clue about guns or hunting. If you knew about guns, you'd know not to hunt next to a damn golf course. If you knew about hunting, you'd know the squirrel season in Georgia is August to February when they aren't pregnant, nursing or raising young. This is what happens when idiots get guns. Innocent people get gut shot.

PS. You're argument is too stupid and weak to even address. Grow up, try adulthood.

Oh, give it a rest. Folks have been picking off pecan-eating and bird-feeder-raiding, attic-crapping squirrels year round for generations.

It's a Southern thing. You just need to be sure of your background.

It's a shame you can't find .22 shorts anymore. They were perfect for urban squirrel elimination.

I should have figured that you would not have the capacity to understand the point I was trying to make from your first post.

Naw.... that idiot was certainly being irresponsible. Squirrel 'pest control' isn't something you just 'do' with houses and people (golfers) running around.

Jay, if you shoot your whatever gun you Claim to have over the fence in your backyard at a pest, and kill someone in the apartments that oversee your property, you would not be "Irresponsible" sic? Really, is that your version of gun control, knowing your target. Everyday you get dumber.

Dude, check this out: I'm playing golf at Coastal Pines a while back. I'm only three over after 6 holes. Yep, 3 beers past my limit, and I can still shoot a 130 if I par in the last 12 holes. All of a sudden, I hear this racket in the trees just off the 7th fairway. Man, this is creepin me out bad,'cause I just hit my 5th tee shot right where I hear the noise, right? No sweat, brah, I just grab my short-barrel AR out of my bag, and wade my butt in there, full-tilt boogie, just like that dude did in Apocalipse...wait, Apakalips...no, Apacalpps...anyhow, that war movie.
So anyway, I jump bad into them bushes, see some movement to my right, and I turn Mr. Colt loose on full-blown, getcha-some, two 30 round magazines full of how 'ya like me now?
Killed two squirrels, a mailbox across the street, and an empty Bud Light can. So, of course, the cops show up. And this cop's like "What the hell were you thinking?" And I'm like "Dude, you totally get it! What the hell?"
Anybody know a cheapo bail dude?
