Cheney's Got a Gun

So Vice President Dick Cheney shot a friend while hunting yesterday. My first question was, “Was it Scooter Libby?” Because that would be a little suspicious. It turned out that he accidentally shot some old 78 year old guy in the face while hunting quail. Again, Vice President Dick Cheney shot a 78 year old man in the face. There are so many directions I could take this entry. But while everyone else is making all the jokes, and there are so many to make, so very many, I’m going to take this opportunity to push hunter safety.

Whether you are hunting quail, rabbit, raccoon, duck, turkey, deer, sasquatch, bear, or the most dangerous game of all, man, you must know the rules of hunter’s safety. One of the most important things I learned taking Hunter’s Education was this: Always know what you are aiming at, and everything that lies along your line of fire, both in front of and behind your target. When you hold a loaded firearm in your hands, you are responsible for anything that happens. So remember kids, Mr. Cheney, always think of safety first. Guns don’t shoot people. People shoot people.
