An example of a gun killing a person??Starliner

From the front page of the 11/8 SF Chronicle, in an article titled "SLA 4 plead guilty"....

".....Opsahl was depositing (at the bank) receipts from the weekend's church services. Inside the bank, she was fatally wounded when a shotgun held by admitted robber Emily Harris was fired."

I guess Emily was just holding the gun, and it must have gone off. I wonder if the DC snipers encountered the same problem...

I'll bet Sintesi and Matno would choke on their venison to hear Czardonic utter that phrase -:}

I haven't had any of that for way too long. This whole graduate school thing is really interfering with the hunting season. Of course, I knowingly made the "mistake" of getting married on the opening week of the elk hunt, and my wife insists that the hunt will never be allowed to interfere with our anniversary... What was I thinking?!

Why would I choke on that statement? It's obviously true. I certainly don't think Czardonic is unintelligent, just opinionated. I too am strongly opinionated, so I don't have a problem with THAT! (We just have different ideas about the solution to the problem). Strong opinions are healthy in our political system. I just wish more politicians had them (instead of fence sitting like so many of them do)!
