How Difficult, Drew, Is "Stay Abreast of Your Fellows" and "Only Shoot within 45% of Straight Ahead"?: Live from The Roasterie CXXXIV: April 4, 2014

It's all fun-and-games until somebody loses an eye...

Catherine Thompson: Pro-Gun Okla. Lawmaker Takes Blame For Accidentally Shooting Fellow Hunter: "An Oklahoma lawmaker who authored pro-gun legislation...

...assumed responsibility for an accidental shooting that left a fellow hunter with a minor injury, The Oklahoman reported Thursday. State Rep. Steve Vaughan (R) was shooting pheasant with a 12-gauge shotgun when another hunter, Drew Ihrig, was struck in the side of the head with a shotgun pellet. The incident took place last month, according to the Oklahoman. “A bird got up and flew between us, oh, probably 50 yards away,” Vaughan told the newspaper. “I shot at the bird and, I guess, one of my BBs hit this guy. I just felt horrible about it," he added. "I just was sick."

Ihrig, for his part, told the Oklahoman that he held "no ill will"....

Makes me wonder if Drew Ihrig is a lobbyist. Call us the next time you feel like going hunting with Vaughan, Drew...

Vaughan authored legislation in 2011 that expanded business owners' and their employees' right to use deadly force when they have reason to fear for their life or significant bodily harm, according to the Oklahoma, .in addition to a bill that created an annual "Second Amendment Day" in the state.
