    Tragic accident. But I wonder if the left will come after BB guns too.

    Who would have thought a bb gun could kill a person. The bb must have went into a vital area of the brain.

    Guess he never saw A Christmas Story!
    But seriously, They called this an accident. That kid purposely shot the teen. NOT an accident, just plain stupid.

    Accidents like this are tragic also a direct result of anti gun radicals. None in my friends or family would have dreamed of pointing anything that shoots at anyone. Our fuzzy feel good anti gun crowd has made guns a mystery to the last two generations.

    The easy path to the brain is through the eye socket, or the area between the front of the ear, and the orbit around the eye. Those are the points where the skull is the thickest.

    Isn't that suppose to be where the skull is thinnest instead of thickest?
    People killed with BB and pellet guns happen more than people think. And they are lumped in with every other gun if I am not mistaken. I have been before.

    Those single shot high power air rifles are deadly. I know of 3 different guys that have killed deer with them.

    I have one that is rated for 1,000fps which is probably faster than most of my real guns.
