No; his I.Q. remains un-affected,
unless contact is established between the slug and his head
( except if he gets killed ).

or are they just acting in haste because they have to be ready in case a Canadian coyote
might suddenly appear and start munching on someone?
If u research that, will u let us know
the results of your interviews on that point ??
Maybe ask that girl singer ?

Will u address that question ?

Never, so far as I remember.

I was indirectly referring to the untimely death
of 19 year old Canadian girl singer Taylor Mitchell in 2009,
when she was un-armed. I thought it was a shame.
I wish that she 'd had a gun; a nice .44 revolver.





ehBeth wrote:
In both examples you provide, I'd call him stupid for not handling the gun properly
and/or not assessing the situation sufficiently.
If the coyote were muching on u,
maybe Setanta 'd not want to lose too much of u down his throat ?
Is it possible that u might be urging him on to greater speed,
in that circumstance? (granted: it is a quick way to lose weight)

Coyotes tend to run if you holler at them. No gun required.
I guess Ms. Mitchell shud have yelled louder,
while she was being eaten. Right ?

she didn't know what she was doing out there.

Did you read how other hikers handled the coyotes?

did you read that park staff with guns were unable to hit the coyotes?

Guns don't always make things better. They often make situations worse or are simply useless.

she wasn't eaten. She was attacked by coyotes. She didn't know how to handle the situation. Other hikers scared the coyotes away - without guns.

Yes; not entirely devoured.
She failed to survive the experience; age 19.
I wish that someone had handed her a gun, in time.

Are u sure about that ?
I remembered it being police or rangers with guns,
but I 'd not bet my life on it.

Anyway, if she had shot her coyote with a nice .44 revolver,
it wud have ended very differently; sad, very sad.
The penalty for obaying gun control laws is DEATH, with no appeal.

Yes, she did not;
just wandering around out there, as hikers do.
I don't approve of that, but I was not consulted.

I don't remember it being reported that way,
but I 'm not sure about that.

No. Its my understanding that he was shot and killed.

Well, if u use the word ALWAYS, then u win that argument,
but thay have been useful tools. We lost a girl singer
because she did not manifest the presence of mind
to be sufficiently well armed; she paid the death penalty for that.

You obviously didn't bother to read the full news reports at the time and then decided to put your personal spin on it.

You are a fine example of the thread title.

@OmSigDAVID,
It's interesting David because your musings have nothing to do with the real world. I have posted hundreds of accidental shooting stories of which many end up being so similar I have to check the date to make sure I haven't posted them before and yet none of them involved accidents while protecting oneself from coyotes, bears or other predators. (Unless you happen to think the man hit while shooting at turtles was defending himself from a turtle rampage, which I personally doubt.)

Interesting that you think the intelligence of a person has no effect on a gun and the likelihood of an accident. Does that mean that other personal characteristics have no effect on the gun?

Why should I research your outlandish fantasies David? Are you some celebrity that I could write a book about? Or are you just another gun nut that feels the world is a horrible place and he has to hold tight to his gun for security to protect himself from the bogyman.

U liberals keep obsessing about the penises of REAL AMERICANS.
( Lustful thinking? Calm down, C. I. Think of your wife, instead. )
U LOVE to bring up the subject of our penises over n over again.


I have never liked my facial appearance
and if I cud, I 'd lose my un-sightly blubber gut,
but I 'd make no changes concerning my sexual organs,
in which u have expressed so intense and so repeated an interest.

Does your wife know about your interest in this (or are u "in the closet") ?


If we ever meet at an A2K get-together, C. I.,
I 'll trouble u to stay away from my penis.
( Stay away or get shot ! )

You're not a 'real American.' Real Americans don't need the security of their gun to feel safe and free. Guns create more violence and crime in the US than any other weapon. You're blind to the facts, and will never be a 'real American' during your whole life. Your life is based on guns (an obsession); a foolish and stupid need for any human.

My obsession is equal treatment of all humans - without the need for guns or wars.

That 's true; we don't,
but our feelings have nothing to do with how safe we are.
A fraction of a second before I was shot at,
I felt 1OO% safe, but was not.

Thay don't create anything; thay r inanimate objects.
Are u IGNORANT of that fact ??

This liberal thinks that self defense from the predatory violence of man or beast is "stupid".
It 'd be fun to see him fighting off a cougar or a pack of dogs.

When dummies like you have a gun, it can be lethal. If you didn't have a gun, more people will be safer in this world.

Those pesky animals.

A Monroe man trying to shoot a squirrel wound up shooting himself.

Ethan Bennett, 36, told Benton County sheriff’s deputies he was at his residence at 24750 Cox Lane in Monroe about 4:15 p.m. Wednesday when he tried to shoot the rodent with a .22-caliber rifle.

The squirrel reportedly ran up his left leg, and he pulled the trigger, hitting himself in the foot.

Deputies contacted Bennett at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center, where he drove himself after the accident. Law enforcement agencies investigate all gunshot wounds admitted to the hospital.

Hospital personnel said Bennett was treated and released.

Capt. Greg Ridler said Bennett did not kill the squirrel.

“The squirrel scared him,” Ridler said.

Ooooh! Big scary squirrel...

Black Forest man misses squirrel, accidentally shoots worker.

A squirrel in Black Forest dodged a bullet, but a man working nearby did not.

A 70-year-old man shooting at a squirrel Friday in Black Forest accidentally wounded a man who was working on an adjacent property, the El Paso County Sheriff's Office said.

The alleged shooter, Gregory Watson, was issued a summons for third-degree assault and prohibited use of a weapon, both misdemeanors.

"The victim received minor injury and sought treatment at a local hospital," the sheriff's office said.

Sheriff's spokesman Lt. Jeff Kramer said the 67-year-old victim was shot in the arm.

The shooting happened about 1 p.m. in the 7000 block of Shoup Road.

A man who tried to shoot a squirrel for dinner by taping a .40-caliber cartridge to a BB gun was hospitalized with shrapnel wounds after the cartridge exploded, Gainesville police reported.

A sworn complaint was filed against William Daniel Lloyd, 31, for discharging a firearm in public and possession of ammunition by a convicted felon, Officer Ben Tobias stated in a press item.

Officer Diana Mattern responded to a medical emergency call at 600 SE 12th Terrace and learned that Lloyd had taped the cartridge to the end of a BB gun to shoot a squirrel, Tobias said.

Lloyd fired the BB gun, causing the BB to strike the cartridge’s primer. The cartridge discharged and fragmented, striking Lloyd in the upper arm and lower leg.

He was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.


And sadly, one more great squirrel hunter...

Watching TV turns bad when man shoots self in butt
By Craig Crosby [email protected]
Staff Writer

ROME -- A New Hampshire man is recuperating after shooting himself in the buttocks while watching TV Friday night, police said.

Kyle Bassler, 20, of Derry, N.H., was taken to Inland Hospital in Waterville, where he was treated for a gunshot wound and released, Kennebec County Sheriff's Deputy Nathan McNally said in a release.

Capt. Daniel Davies of the sheriff's office said no charges will be filed in the case.

The shooting occurred around 7:30 p.m. Friday at a camp on West Point Lane. Police were not notified for another two hours, when Inland emergency room staff reported an apparent accidental shooting of one of their patients.

Bassler told McNally that he had been hunting a nuisance squirrel outside the camp with a .22-caliber handgun. Bassler put the handgun in a holster, which was fitted inside his pants, and went back inside the camp.

"Bassler claimed that he sat in a chair and was watching TV when he heard the gun go off and felt a subsequent burning sensation on his backside," McNally said. "Bassler stood up and realized that the firearm had discharged and that he was, in fact, shot."

Friends and family at the camp helped get Bassler to the hospital, where medical staff removed the bullet from Bassler's buttocks, McNally said.

Attempts to reach Bassler on Monday were unsuccessful.

Police said Bassler was discharged from the hospital and was expected to make a full recovery from the injury.
