I'm also glad to hear that she is ok. Also glad that the shooter had the gall stones to come forward and say that it might have been his bullet, you don't come across honesty like that much any more.
I'd like to add that saying a gun has no civilian use is wrong, the .50 and similar very high velocity cartridges are used for hunting large animals like elk in some states. I know 2 guys that I work with that both have Barrett .50 cal rifles and shoot them on Sundays at our workplace. We work in a limestone rock quarry, they shoot either into a very large pile of lime or into the mountain side.
Also I might add, the are a lot of politicians out there that say the beloved AR and it's variants have no civilian use. As well as the AK and other "assault rifles", that is one reason of many why they have been on the chopping block many times.
