Multimillionare or not, I hope the guys ok. I mean, I don't hunt, and I think I've seen a quail, but its gotta be hard to confuse the two.

Poor bastard. There will be unreasonable workup over this.

Hey does anyone know if he was using a shotgun? And what about shotgun pellets? I couldn't really tell from the article.

Could someone beat that over my head more repeatedly...maybe in bold text?

I don't know why it was hard for you tell.

Jibber, shotgun pellets, especially from the 30 yards away, is just about enough to break the skin. There is a GINORMOUS difference between that and getting shot with a shotgun that has actual shotgun ammunition.

And to big3, it wasn't the difference between seeing a quail and a big bright old guy in an orange jumpsuit. He was following the quail (tracing him) and when he shot it happened that the other man was in his line of fire since he was out picking up his quail.

Poor hunting tactics? Yes, they should have all gone to get it together, but old people are lazy. But national emergency? Hells no.

This is completely wrong. He was shooting game, but following it a person got in the path right as Cheney shot. READ THE ARTICLE.

And also, when you say there is a huge difference between shotgun pellets and a pellet gun, there really isn't that much of a difference. Just that the shotgun pellets have a much wider range when fired. Hence the guy getting hit with pellets in the face and neck and chest.

YOU read the article. He was approaching NOT in Cheneys path, Cheney spun round and before checking his path he shot.

"Whittington "came up from behind the vice president ... The covey flushed and the vice president picked out a bird and was following it and shot. And by God, Harry was in the line of fire and got peppered pretty good.""

PEOPLE HALF BLIND SHOULD KNOW NOT TO GO HUNTING. IT IS RETARDED FOR PEOPLE TO LET THEIR EGO OVERTAKE THEIR ABILITY. THE ISSUE HERE IS THAT ACTS LIKE THIS ARE INDICATIVE BOTH TO CHENEYS ATTITUDE OF PEOPLE AROUND HIM (and in general), AND HIS OPINION OF HIS OWN CAPABILITIES. It just doesn't help that he hospitalised someone at the same time.

"Sorry I shot you, it's OK though! Afterall, I'm decrepid, half blind and we're in dark area it's pretty hard NOT to shoot my buddies in those conditions, ha! Not hunt in those conditions? Why would I do that, I ENJOY hunting! And look on the brightside, my shotguns ONLY loaded with pellets rather than full on bullets. Nobody liked your face anyway."

I cannot actually believe your peoples attitudes to shooting someone. "Never point your gun at something unless you intend to destroy it" is the sort of thing I gather they're taught in gun proficiency tests. THESE PEOPLE SHOULD KNOW HOW NOT TO SHOOT THEIR BUDDIES. If I had a slack jawed trigger happy redneck in a seat of such power I'd be shitting myself.

It must be to people here, b/c this thread has gotten more replies than the Katrina thread, the Hamas thread, the Energy thread, the Islamic cartoon thread, and the Bird Flu thread. So yeah, pretty much all the prominent global issues in the past half-year are just not as appealing as kicking a man when he's down. And as Cheney's penis, I think I have a say! By the way, here's the followup to the initial report.
