  • Irresponsible gun owners ruin it for the rest of us who use our fricking brain and follow basic gun safety with a bit of common sense. I hope they find who is responsible for this and give them maximum punishment allowed by law, and then some. Best wishes to the victim in her recovery. I hope she fully recovers from her injuries.

    • Thank you. So many gun owners are of the irresponsible variety and would defend whoever was shooting in the dark.

  • Local hospital unable to treat a gunshot to the arm? That is deplorable

    • Priscilla Wilson

      Of course they can but maybe they were otherwise occupied with emergencies. Maybe the woman had insurance at an outside facility. Maybe some other reason…..

  • I’m glad the investigation is under investigation — that ought to clear things up.

  • How would you know that the person shooting is a legitimate gun owner?
    This story sure does not sound like it.
    It sounds like some illegal Mexican immigrants are trying out their new cartel guns to me.
    Besides, the police should be doing their job and finding the perpetrator [edit]
