*According to the FBI, the #1 weapon used in violent crimes....is a baseball bat. WHY is there NO outcry to RESTRICT baseball bat ownership? (Maybe because so many law-abiding citizens enjoy them safely, for sport? Hmmmmm....)

ROCHESTER PASTOR WHO SHOT GRANDDAUGHTER THOUGHT SHE WAS INTRUDER

Pastor who shot granddaughter thought intruder was at patio door.
Stanley Wilkinson had a plan on how he would use his gun if an intruder ever came into his home: He and his wife would hole up in the bedroom and call 911, using the gun only to let an intruder know there was someone in the house.
But late Monday night, when he heard a noise outside his Rochester home and thought his granddaughter was sleeping upstairs at the other end of the house, the 61-year-old grabbed his pistol and went to investigate while his wife called 911. He told police that when he saw a figure at their patio door, he believed it was an intruder and fired two rounds, hitting the person once. That person turned out to be his granddaughter.
"Even if you have a plan for an emergency, you don't know what you'll do out of fear," Wilkinson said in a brief phone interview Thursday. "You get so frightened and something happens like that so, everything happens so quick ... you just don't know what you'll do when, out of fear you do things that you wish you hadn't ever done."
The granddaughter, 16, was hospitalized Monday night with a wound to her upper torso and was expected to survive, police had said. She was improving in the hospital Thursday, Wilkinson said: "The more we find out that she's going to be OK ... that's everything for us right now."
