Irresponsible Gun Owner of the Day: Unidentified Deltona, Florida Neighbor by Robert Farago | Dec 29, 2013 | 24 comments facebook twitter linkedin email Home made gun range. Errant bullet. Next-door neighbor dead. “Know your target and what’s behind it.” Do the math. comments Matt in FL says: December 29, 2013 at 20:05 Doh! I forgot to fix the text, and I don’t want to rewrite it (I’m on my phone), so note this: The initial reports had the bullet coming from a homemade gun range on a nearby property, but within a couple hours, the cops figured out it didn’t come from there, but from a different property in a different direction. Still a crappy, sad situation. Reply Michael B. says: December 30, 2013 at 02:14 Sad story but I’m glad it didn’t come from the range. I live in FL and I shoot at a backyard range out in the boonies. We had a bunch of dirt hauled in and created a pretty massive berm.

Instead of a video story, all it says is “Video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo Player” In red letters. When I click on it, it takes me to an ad site. Reply Matt in FL says: December 29, 2013 at 20:30 Sounds like you have substandard equipment. And your computer’s pretty bad, too. Oh, rimshot!

Tom in Oregon says: December 30, 2013 at 01:05 Yup. Liking the Tony Soprano one. Anonymous says: December 29, 2013 at 20:40 I can confirm similar. Mine just shows an empty space where a picture or video should have been?

Reply Gyufygy says: December 29, 2013 at 21:21 No, guys, Matt just posted a police sketch of the unknown guy. They don’t have many details yet. Reply Tom in Oregon says: December 29, 2013 at 22:20 Another rimshot! Reply NWGlocker says: December 29, 2013 at 23:08 ohhh, that got me. I looked through the links thinking, “where? I don’t see a police sketch” Reply HB says: December 29, 2013 at 20:58 iPad Air, iOS 7.0.4, same issue. Reply Excedrine says: December 29, 2013 at 21:12 Leave the range-building to contract professionals (unless you happen to be one). Oh, and please do us all a favor and just observe the basic fucking safety rules. Reply neiowa says: December 30, 2013 at 09:19 Really? You can’t figure out how to pile up dirt for a backstop? Most guys have the general concept figured out at the old sandbox by age 3. Reply Clay says: December 29, 2013 at 21:24 It really doesn’t matter. Ios, MSos, linux…… A man died because of ignorance and stupidity. Beat down your fellow gun owners until they get it. Reply NWGlocker says: December 29, 2013 at 22:34 No charges at the time of the video since “…they [the authorities] are looking whether appropriate safety measures were in place.” Really? Reply Crunkleross says: December 30, 2013 at 11:22 Maybe they are trying to figure out who to charge, you know the person who actually shot the victim? Reply MIna says: December 29, 2013 at 22:53 Ubuntu 12.04 – video works perfectly. This is bad stuff. While I don’t take responsibility for things othe people do because it’s unrealistic for us all to be accountable for every gun owner, it’s still not a good thing to have so many example of irresponsibility all coming on top of each other in a short period of time. Reply Samuel Suggs says: December 29, 2013 at 23:52 thats a big rat. Reply Mina says: December 30, 2013 at 10:39 It’s a guinea pig. Reply Paul T. McCain says: December 30, 2013 at 05:45 So maybe the original post needs to be corrected?
