    Wow,

    I think that judge needs to find a new job. Wonder if he was the victim of a stand up guy's attack would he feel the same way?
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    That is not good character in the least bit.

    He deserves like a good 10+ years in the slammer for that one.

    Great, gun owners get a bad rap because of an idiot judge. This is driving me crazy lately. Here is the cycle I see.

    1. law makers make a law
    2. police enforce the law
    3. judges ignore the law
    4. lawmakers think they need to make more and tougher laws.
    5. repeat

    Mix in some politics and you get one heck of a mess!
