Well it is Wyoming the state with the highest per capita gun ownership and the fifth highest gun deaths per capita.

Was he wearing one of those goofy antler hats?

During the Bush/ Kerry election campaign my wife and i climbed at Tensleep and that night stayed in a motel in Tensleep. I walked out to my car that morning to find a local redneck in the act of scraping the "Mssion Not Accomplished" sticker from the bumper.

You should have shot him.

i guess it really doesn't surprise me the instant default to petty prejudices and politics when reacting to a shooting incident in which nothing is known except someone was shot in the dark at 3 am in a camping area.
These news events have become Rorscharch tests for whatever grudge one happens to be carrying around.

Here's to a trouble free recovery for the shooting victim and his family.

Well, we know the shooter wasn't a inner city black teenager in a hoodie...

Yep.....it shouldn't surprise you.


I'll be surprised, however, if it turns out to be Nancy Pelosi's butler.

Hey, Ward, welcome to Supertopo! Facts don't mean sh#t round here.

I know. They don't mean a rats ass in society either.

The only persons who don't have the luxury of superimposing their own prejudices on this event is the detective assigned to the case, and the physicians treating the victim.

I doubt even that is true.

Truly though, best to the wounded. I hope they get to the bottom of this soon.

And I stand by my assertion that red necks are scary. Here in Reno we click the locks on the door when white people walk by. And I'm related to some of these crackers!

Well it is Wyoming the state with the highest per capita gun ownership and the fifth highest gun deaths per capita.

And the lowest population ( just over half of that of San Jose Ca ) all tucked into the ninth largest state. We're working out a few rough spots. First female governor though.

What kind of gun was it?

The second link says "small caliber".

Are small caliber guns allowed in Why-oming?

Any State with grizzly bears, wolves, wolverines AND black footed ferrets is okay in my book.

Probably some skin head rednecks who took notice to the Ecuadorian.

Small Caliber, no shots heard, probably a home made silencer.

So much WTF.
