Recreational assault weapons fire riddles Ohio home, narrowly misses officer



Two men were arrested in Ohio on Wednesday after their target practice with an AK-47 assault rifle accidentally shot up a woman’s home and nearly hit a officer who was responding to reports of gunfire.

Mary Kuruc told WEWS that her daughter discovered a bullet hole in the siding of their Montville Township home and other holes inside the house. After calling 911, Montville Police Sgt. Matt Neil began investigating and the home was hit again.

“We noticed a second bullet hole, followed the trajectory of it and noticed the bullet landed in the microwave,” Kuruc recalled.

2. Were any laws broken?

Because if not, then the gun-owners were abiding by the laws, and still nearly killed someone. A cop, for that matter. I assume he was armed. Wouldn't have been any protection against stray rounds, though...

3. Possibly

Even in Virginia you just can't indiscriminately shoot anywhere you please...there are even limitations on where you fire a bow.

So, does anyone know what the laws in Ohio are?

5. So then, technically, they are not "law-abiding gun-owners".

When are we going to be allowed legal protection from people like that?

6. They're idiots and criminals

 

I haven't seen anyone claim otherwise.
