I am pretty disgusted with this man. He said that he thought he was firing an "air gun" at his friend. He had already seen that this would injure someone, from shooting him in the leg, so he decided it would bounce off his chest?
The story says Bell is a native Vermonter. It is shocking to me that he has absolutely no knowledge of firearms safety. I don't know if he really thought this was an airsoft gun (even though they must have an orange muzzle), a bb gun, or just wasn't thinking, but I hope he goes to jail for a long while.
