Not good, not good at all.
These kind of acts coupled with signs that read"Trespassers will be shot. Survivors will be re-shot!! Smile I will." just makes all gun owner out as nuts.
Secondly, you just don't start shooting until you know what's going on.
Am I threatened, is my property being damage, who's there, ect...???
Just based on that limited info I suspect the charge will be changed to murder and if there was no threat then murder is the correct charge - IMO.
Man I hate to see this kind of stuff going on.
"Stupid is as stupid does"
I'm guessing there was more to it than anyone is saying. These morons can't be THAT stupid, can they? I suspect there was a meth lab or a secret crop these folks were getting dangerously close to.
It's so sad for the little boy and the family. Ultimately, the anti-gunners will take this story and run with it... even though the problem is the nut behind the gun. This was neither a handgun, nor an "assault weapon". See! Americans can't be trusted with guns.
