    College Student stupidity

    I am not sure where this should be posted but it give the Brady Bunch plenty of ammo.

    Bond set on CCU student charged in shooting near campus - News - South Carolina Now (SCNow.com)

    An Horry County judge set bond on Joseph Christopher Frasco on Monday at $5,000 for charges that he shot his life-long friend and college roommate in the shoulder with a shotgun.

    Horry County police charged Frasco in the shooting that sent 20 year old Aaron Harper to a trauma center and Frasco to jail.

    County police charged Frasco with assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature following the shooting Saturday night.

    Frasco is a Coastal Carolina University student and originally from Toms River, New Jersey, according to his attorney, Michael Wells .

    The shooting happened around 9 p.m. Saturday at 1744 Juniper Drive, near the Highway 501 and Highway 544 intersection.

    Horry County police lieutenant, Jay Brantley, said Frasco shot Harper in the shoulder with a shotgun.

    Harper is an Horry-Georgetown Technical college student, according to authorities.

    Harper remains hospitalized at MUSC in stable condition, according to Wells.

    "Initial indications are they were inside playing with guns, didn't know the gun was loaded; racked a round into the chamber, pulled the trigger and it went off," Horry County police lieutenant Jay Brantley told News13 at the scene Saturday night.

    Investigators said four people were inside the home when the shooting happened and that witnesses told investigators that all four, including Harper and Frasco, spent the afternoon drinking and partying.

    Brantley said witnesses told police that Harper grabbed a shotgun and started waving it around and pointing it at the people inside.

    Brantley said Frasco grabbed another shotgun and pointed it at Harper, then shot him in the right shoulder.

    Brantley said Frasco told investigators he thought the gun was unloaded and the shooting was an accident.

    Horry County police's crime scene unit continued processing the scene past midnight Saturday.

    Investigators performed gunshot residue tests on Frasco at the scene.

    Brantley said neither Harper nor Frasco lived at the Juniper Drive address.

    Medics took Harper to Conway Medical Center, then flew him to the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston for treatment.

    County police booked Frasco into the J. Reuben Long Detention Center just after eleven Saturday night.

    As of this posting, Frasco remained jailed under bond.

    Sounds like the media is making this out to be a college student issue when absolutely nothing of the incident had to do with the fact that they were college students. Could as well been teenagers, working stiffs etc etc...

    Am I missing something here? They racked a round, and then said they didn't know it was loaded?

    I'd say that they're all a 'little' smarter...now...
    They have learned about pain, loud noises, unloaded guns, emergency rooms, and...the legal process...

    I will blame it on the fact the shooter was from anti gun NJ and was not familiar. Maybe gun bans are dangerous for more than the reasons we thought about...

    Never point a weapon at anything you are not willing to destroy! Drinking and firearms, more so if one is not familiar with firearms is definitely a BAD idea.
    You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt

    Nothing is more dangerous than a college educated moron, the anti's will add this to their reasons for not allowing guns on a college campus.
    The first time you aren't armed and prepared may be the last time you wished you were.
