The one brother has already drowned. Just release the 2 remaining stump-shooters and let nature take it's course. If you think shooting at a target inside your house is a good idea, the probability that you will continue to survive for very long is really low. I'm surprised they made it this far.

bad enough there that stupid to shoot at a stump, but dude lost his brother too??

Damn... that's some shiat ass luck

Power ruled that the lower court had erred in dismissing the case, finding that prosecutors had produced sufficient evidence to meet the "probable cause" threshold of the preliminary exam - enough evidence so that a jury should decide whether or not the shooting incident was "reckless" under the statute.

Damn lawyer-speak gives me a headache.

The stump was asking for it.

"A judge's decision to dismiss gun charges against two men who fired dozens of shots into a stump inside a home has been reversed by a Circuit Court judge and the men ordered to stand trial."


Ouch! Hide your weeners.

The article neglected to mention that the stump was the remaining piece of leg on Grandpa after the amputation.

I can't remember too well, but when I took classes as a kid for my hunting license (not my choice - made Dad real happy, though), I thought there was some kind of rule about shooting within so-many feet of a dwelling. Wouldn't that apply?

What a dumbass, doesn't he know that stumps are out of season?
 
2001-08-01 06:54:46 PM
Diogenes, they misunderstood that's all. They thought the instructor thought you had to be "so many feet inside of a dwelling".

I think they ought to dig the bastard up, and drag his dead ass into court, with the other two. For moral support, if nothing else. Typical news agency release failed to mention the stump had terrorized the entire town for weeks, and finally broke into a house. God only knows what it would have done, had it not been stopped...

Of course, then there's the whiners. "Local farmer threatens to bring lawsuit against the three, after finding his beloved 'Stumpy', riddled with bullets. Distraught farmer claims his entire flock of sheep is emotionally distressed, and unapproachable". Film at eleven.

I think we all need to re-evaluate here on who is the real victim.

Besides, everyone knows you use a block of C-4 to remove a stump. Not a damn gun!

I shot a stump once, it was scary.

I think the hunting statute you read was to prevent hunters from shooting near other people's homes (which is against the law unless you have their permission). I know several people around here who occasionally target shoot and zero-in their rifle scopes from their back porch (out in the boonies, of course).

It all depends on what their surroundings are like. If they're in an apartment or a densely packed subdivision, then there may be a case for recklessness. But if they are in a low-density area or out in the sticks, I don't see how the authorities can say what you can and can't do in your own home, as long as no one got hurt and no one inside the home objected.

Hell, I've seen steel bullet traps that are designed to allow target shooting anywhere (even indoors) with .22 rimfires.

Darn, I hate continuing a thread with such drivel as SC posted above. Maybe the MODs will remove it.

Anyway, my post:

"Dagnabit! They steal our little freedoms one at a time. Man, I am going to miss being able to shoot a stump in my livingroom!"

"Maybe if I could get something bigger than a single-wide in a trailer-park it would help."

Yeah! What Chik said! I am glad the MODs cannned that.

Seriously, I bet Remington covers their court costs.

But a possible 6 years? Did I read that right?
That's unrealistic. No honest judge would hold them for more than 30 days.

Unless there was at least 500 feet to the nearest dwelling and they were out of "city" limits then these guys are idiots.

Put them in a concrete room with loaded 357 Magnums and a stump and let natural selection take its course.

Under normal circumstances I would defend the right of these fellows to have guns in their own homes, but plugging a stump is silly. Take their guns! (Which is what the final sentence will likely be.)

I know this guy who shot a hole in the bottom of his boat in his yard to drain the water out, he lives 2 blocks from the local police station.... Everyone is surrounded by dumbass's...
 
2001-08-02 01:42:21 AM
what the fark? these guys are gonna get 4 years in prison for having target practice inside their house? how farked up.

"Hey man, whatchyu in for?"
"i shot a stump"
"man, if you're gonna kill a gimp, get him in the head or chest, not his stump"
"...no, a real wooden stump. from a tree."
"... uh, okay." second inmate walks away plotting the rape he will give this guy.
 
2001-08-02 01:52:36 AM
hmm, first I went to the post because I didn't want to postpone paying the postage fee.
 
2001-08-02 02:27:50 AM
The stump dies at midnight.
 
2001-08-02 04:06:24 AM
At least they dropped the charges agaist the dead one. I'd hate to see him have to try defend himself in court.

I wanted to say something witty about this article, but I'm stumped. :-(
