Ask AP: Petroleum products, the Cuba trade embargo
SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) -- A staged shootout got a little too real when two people were shot with a gun mistakenly loaded with birdshot. The Sheboygan County Sheriff's Capt. Dave Adams said the shooting happened about 11 a.m. Sunday during a train robbery re-enactment held as part of the weekend Santa Steam Train event.
Adams said participants were acting out a shootout between the train robbers and police when a gun sprayed 46 shotgun pellets into the arm, leg and abdomen of 49-year-old re-enactor Thomas E. Rumpff of Sheboygan.
Two pellets struck a 14-year-old spectator. One embedded in his index finger, and another bounced off his knee.
Adams said both were treated at a hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

What is going on at all these re-enactments?
How can you mistake birdshot or real bullets for blanks, unless the person in charge of loading the guns is a novice.

Why would a person even stock up their _reenactment kit_ with real ammo when their task is to reenact stuff and thus be using blank rounds?
One should not even leave home with real ammo nevermind check their ammo as loaded _before_ loading it into a given firearm.
Stuff like this and that Bizilij boy's father are doing us no favors at all.
NOW thats what I call a re-enactment
wait??? thats real blood are you sure

The power of imagination is the key to life.
It helps you think ahead, consider the possibilities,and prepare you for the future.
If you lack that ability, you're no different from livestock trapped behind a fence.
Moron alert. Sheesh. Antis jump all over this garbage. Of course, the amount of people killed with ladders, cars, and alcohol every year...
Okay a lead shotgun shell weighs a lot more than a blank,I'd charge the guy with reckless endangernment
