"A metal pellet from an air rifle shot straight through the ring finger of a female motorcyclist wearing a thick leather glove, a sheriff’s spokesman said. The second victim was shot in the right knee, he said.

Both were hospitalized and are recovering, authorities said."

That's incredible! I had no idea an air rifle was that powerful. The air rifle I had back in the day certainly wasn't.

Believe me they can be lethal, back in the '70s I had a Benjamen pump air rifle and with 15 pumps it would explode a squirrels head 20 pumps, look out! it was pretty awesome 22 caliber.

bus windows

I remember a few years ago there was a spot where city buses lost a bunch of rear windows for seemingly no reason. Upon further inspection, there were marbles littering the street from some kids with slingshots using buses for target practice. Usually it's not the kid that needs a slap upside the head, it's his parents.....lol

Lil' Bastards should be taken out and have there jewels blown off with the weapons they were using...and then left for dead....with there parents forced to watch as their life dwindles away.
(( then deal with the parents in the same way........there only polluting the gene pool after all!!!))
Better yet leave the one that threatened suicide alone in a cell with a good stout rope and let nature take it's course!!!!!!
OK...perhaps that may be a bit extreme.....

Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth....That's fair.
Give no quarter....show NO mercy. ARRRRRRRGH!!!!!!
JUST MAKE ME WANT TO SPIT!

Being out in public with something that looks exactly like a real rifle is a real fine way to get yourself shot. At least it is in a state that issues carry permits.

Fair enough. Shoot both of then in the finger and knee with their own guns and send them home.

That is far from fair. There is damaged gear to replace. Lost time at work. Lost leisure time that can never be recovered. Medical expenses. Possible long term pain/weakness from the injuries. Find a way to give restitution for all that AND shoot them both in the finger and knee with their own guns and then maybe that's fair.

Glad it wasn't worse for the riders. Pretty easy for a distraction like that to cause an accident, especially on a road that requires your full attention.

I say throw them out of a car that is going 70MPH and make sure they go into the trees. That's the kind of accident that they could have caused, so that's how they should die.

And they get no helmets...

That should be assault with a deadly weapon!!! I have Air rifles that put out almost as much power as a .22.

The sad part is nothing will happen to them, but a slap on the wrist. That is the way of America, The Victim is normally treated like the Criminal, and they are always worried about violating the criminals rights.


I say put cameras in Prison, sell tickets to the event, and hand out guns and knives to each prisoner, and lock the doors. We do not need more prisons, just clean out the ones we have.
