A Cedar Rapids man faces charges after allegedly shooting horses from inside his truck.

Johnson County Deputies were dispatched to Falcon Avenue in Swisher at 2 p.m. Sunday after a caller reported that someone had shot his horses. The caller retrieved a license plate number from the suspect vehicle, according to police.

Investigators made contact with the defendant, Ryan L. Grafft, 31, who agreed to meet at the Johnson County Sheriff's Office, according to complaints. During an interview, Grafft admitted to the investigator that he was driving around in his vehicle shooting things with his rifle. Grafft told the investigator that he saw three horses in a field and decided to shoot them.

One of the horses was killed and two required immediate medical care by an on call veterinarian, according to complaints.

Poor horses!

Apparently, the suspect cannot identify why he allegedly did what he allegedly did, but can admit that it was allegedly a stupid thing to do.

5. I can not support the death penalty for anything.

This man needs to spend time behind bars for this, and never be allowed to a gun again.

3. responsible gun owner

Up until he did this he was considered a responsible gun owner. Our country needs commonsense regulation of gun owners and real legal penalties and enforcement for these formally responsible gun owners. why is the NRA hard at work trying to introduce legislation that gives a legal avenue for the return of gun ownership rights to people that have already proven to be irresponsible, like this guy?
Is the NRA about the 2nd amendment, or is it really supporting right wing, America-destroying conspiracy theories and racist ideologies?
Given the behaviour and history of the NRA and it's "reality impaired" followers, it's obvious that the teabaggers' only intention is to sew discord and fear in support of a racist conspiracy theory involving the president of the united states and his magical army of black panthers and union police thugs.
Anyone that claims to be a proud member of the NRA should probably have thier gun rights taken from them; they've already proven to be dangerously ignorant about the real world- and we all have to wonder why the NRA membership needs a child rapist on the board of directors and so many proud Klu Klux Klan sympathizers in charge of national messaging. How would the NRA be hurt by divesting themselves of Ted Nugent because of his threats on the life of the POTUS and his wife? I'll tell you: they would lose membership of all the extremist right wing gun nuts that are irresponsible enough to be supporters of Nugent and his wild-eyed conspiracies and racist justifications. The funny thing is that it's all of these nuts should have thier gun rights removed from them BECAUSE of thier nuttery in the face of reality- it shows irresponsibility and childish refusal to accept responsibility.
