Because we have idiots like this in our nation:
Two men were arrested in Ohio on Wednesday after their target practice with an AK-47 assault rifle accidentally shot up a woman’s home and nearly hit a officer who was responding to reports of gunfire.
Mary Kuruc told WEWS that her daughter discovered a bullet hole in the siding of their Montville Township home and other holes inside the house. After calling 911, Montville Police Sgt. Matt Neil began investigating and the home was hit again.
“We noticed a second bullet hole, followed the trajectory of it and noticed the bullet landed in the microwave,” Kuruc recalled.
Neil found himself in the line of fire as he tried to track down where the bullets were coming from.
Luckily this story did end so bad, but imagine if the officer actually did get shot or there were children playing in the house, where the bullets hit. It's the irresponsible, drunken, "it will never happen to me" attitude that so many of these idiots have that makes them a danger. Even more dangerous is the fact that people like the NRA will go to great lengths to defend them.
