    I am just trying to figure out which one is stupider; the one shooting or the one that wanted to be shot

    Ok, I know this is a stupid statement but in the scheme of things shooting someone in the meaty part of a leg with a 22 (Assuming they missed the femoral artery and bones) is not all that dangerous considering what other people do to each other on dares. And they don't get charged with anything.

    And remember: I said it was a stupid statement

    Before opening the link I was sure I was going to see a couple of you guys in it attempting to prove once and for all which is better. The 9 mm or the 45 acp.

    Mossow was charged with reckless endangerment. He's being held in the county jail on $10,000 bail. It could not be immediately determined if he had a lawyer.
    The charge should read total stupidity.

    What if the friend's aim was off and he hits an artery and the friend bleeds to death. So, imagine him trying to let the authorities know, "but I swear, he TOLD me to do it." In this case the friend can corroborate the story (although that isn't likely going to help the guy who did the actual shooting). But it just makes you wonder about them having any "smarts" at all, or thinking of the consequences (or potential consequences).

    ..."man had his friend shoot him in the leg with a rifle because he wanted to know what it feels like to be shot."

    His friend should have just kicked him in the begonias and told him that it would hurt a little less than that.

    I see nothing wrong with this... If two morons want to risk their lives & possibly die in the attempt, let them...

    I also believe the concept of letting gangs kill eachother is great... Move all the innocents out, let them fight over a controlled area & when only a few survive, drop napalm on them...
