This is a tragic story and i feel for the family, however the group who were shooting should be subject to the law and be charged with manslaughter. If you are going to fire a weapon then you have to understand the risks involved, you have to check that the area you are firing into is clear and you can see where your fall out area is, the people who were playing with deadly firearms clearly did not do this and as a result a man is dead. I am sure the people using the guns feel terrible, but guns are used for killing things, if you dont do the risk assesment there is no second chance if your on the wrong end of the gun as poor professor riess's and his family know too well.(Before anyone "shoots me down" for being an anti gun lobbyist, you couldnt be further from the truth, I am a club safety officer at my local gun club in the UK.)
