    1. dont like law abiding citizens with guns? Move to a not so free country. like the uk or france or something.

  1. Love the reporting here. Hard to believe that she was “aiming” at the chicken coop with the gun pointing at her foot.

  2. Rule #1
    Always Keep Firearm Pointed in a Safe direction. Never point your gun at anything you do not intend to shoot.
