Some years back, a couple of teenage boys (never the most thoughtful group) were chasing each other at dusk through the neighborhood with Super Soaker guns. One was hiding behind my trash can. I had to explain to them that running around in semi-light, pointing gun-like objects at each other was a very, very bad idea in an area where people make no secret of the fact that they own guns. They really had not considered the possibility that they might get shot. It's sad that kids have to think about the consequences of things we used to do without a thought, but here we are.
"Although deputy constables questioned the shooter, it was not immediately clear if he would be charged."Seriously? Certainly sounds like assault with a deadly weapon to me.
Don, This IS Texas!
