A buddy and I went to the ramp today to get away from the candy-hyped kids. We get to the ramp and there's two teenagers there with guns. One had a .22 and the other a shotgun. They're not supposed to be shooting there, but I didn't think much of it. Then one of the jokers rattles of a 10 or 20 shots as fast as he can pull the trigger. Shooting into the mud puddle 2 feet in front of him like a kid with a bb gun. I asked him politely (but with an aggravated tone) to please refrain from shooting till we'd vacated the area. He said sorry and laid off. Until we got the truck parked and got into the boat, then they started shooting again. The parking lot at the ramp is quite a bit higher than the water and I'm sure the goofs were firing over the river as we were heading out. Not with any intention of shooting near us, just too dense and oblivious to realize bullets go further than whatever it was they were shooting at. I realize I'm in the wrong, I should have called the local PD and let them run the kids out, but my bigger question is who taught (or more to the point DIDN'T) teach these 2 rocket scientists about guns? And why did they let them out of the house with them? I'm not for yanking guns or any of that, but when I see this kind of reckless stupidity with firearms it really makes it hard for me to buy the whole argument for minimal restrictions on gun sales. These 2 had no more business having guns unsupervised than my 5 year old would and probably the same amount of common sense. I'm not sure how old these 2 were, but I'd bet they weren't old enough to buy them, so somebody, probably a parent, bought them for them. I have to take a safety course to hunt, so why in the heck should any goof with $100 bucks be able to buy a gun? Not trying to start a fight, but I'm just curious what everyone's take on it is.
