Default Always check your backstop

Some poor judgement resulted in the death of a young boy.

Know your target, and beyond. Anything else is reckless endangerment at minimum.

Know your target, and beyond. Anything else is reckless endangerment at minimum. And likely Criminally Negligent Homicide.

Apparently not so if you're a cop.

All men are created equal, just some are more equal than others.

Very sad for the family. A gun, cannot be fired, like you a re sipping a soda, or reading a book. To pull out a gun to kill a non threatening backyard creature is bad enough, but to discharge a firearm into woods with no clear backstop is criminal.
