WOW! Cheney's quail hunting accident catches his friend with birdshot in the face!
Vice President Dick Cheney accidentally shot and wounded a companion during a weekend quail hunting trip in Texas, spraying the fellow hunter in the face and chest with birdshot pellets.
Cheney really needs to get a refresher course in NRA safety rules, that when you are out hunting, you must not turn around and fire in any direction behind you. The rifle should be always in front of you and your hunting partner should be beside you, and the dogs should also be seen and out of the way of fire.
This was a very unfortunate accident, and I am sure Cheney's friend, a lawyer, could be thinking about who is going to pay for his hospital bills to reconstruct his face and chest. Cheney did spend the following day with his friend by his hospital bedside. I'm sure Cheney was very upset about what he had done.
At the end of the day, this could serve as a lesson to all hunters, and it could be a way to promote NRA safety rules to the general public.
Dont get carried away now. You are acting like Mr. Whittingtons face and chest were blown away. That is not the case. He was hit by some of the birdshot from a distance and was not seriously injured. We dont want an innocent accident blown into something that it wasnt. That just gives the anti-gun nuts something to play on. They grasp for straws anyway.
