    The article states the shooter hadn't been drinking, nor has he been charged with anything at this point.

    That'll change the tone of a party in a hurry. Aren't enough of these stories out there that people would ****ing think of possibilities like this before dropping a hammer? I know, of course not...hell I see it myself among my own firearm experienced friends when they feel like having show and tell playtime.

    Hope and pray the little girl recovers without lasting problems.

    But that shooter.

    Lets see there was a home halloween party going on with presumably costumed kids all over the place. Then this guy lets go with a shotgun. At the very least, isn't there supposed to be something about identifying your target?

    I've shot a lot of skunks during my life and I always knew exactly what I was shooting at.

    Well, that really stinks.

    Skunks, even when up on a hill, is a pest, I guess. Just glad the girl wasn't seriously injured. Could have been a lot worse.

    WTF!?!?!?!?

    Drinking had nothing to do with it besides this idiot being a complete moron. This is what you get when you have the "shoot everything" mentality.

    This moron represents about 00.00001% of gun owners and just gave the other 99.9999% of us a lot of problems giving the gun grabbers some real ammo.

    How do you ever face your family again after pulling a stunt like that? I'd have to move five states away even if I completely missed the girl.

    Didn't/couldn't positively identify the target as animal he thought it was. No excuse.

    His gun, his responsibility. Charges.

    (Sounds like a Minnesota Deer Hunting Season "Sound Shot".......)

    There should be prison time in store for him.

    They must have giant skunks in PA. I can't imagine confusing a child with a skunk.

    Sadly I don't think think this level of stupidity is nearly as rare as 1 in a million.

    Weird... I must have misread it then. I thought the shooter first advised he had been drinking. mea culpa.

    Still a bad shoot nonetheless.

    Still bitter are we? :whistling:

    Anyway, pipe down. Then please see my above post.

    I guess I am just stuck in thinking that only someone who had been drinking heavily would have made such a mistake.

    Wow - what a maroon. This is one of those cases where, if charges can't be filed, the LEO (or the girl's dad) should at least beat the snot out of the shooter for good measure.
