    Shouldn't be firing off a gun at a party. In Texas the guy would've been charged with deadly conduct simply because he was reckless in his actions.

    (twitch) Okay... so why can't we have a rule saying that if you have less sense than a turnip then you can't own a firearm? Really? It's the constitutional right for morons to put the rest of us at risk? Okay... Makes sense... I guess... Oh, you're saying it's no problem because if they hurt someone then we just lock them up.... So... we have to wait until they hurt someone? Okay... Makes sense... I guess... (twitch)

    For what it's worth, you probably don't want to be shooting any real skunks either, unless you're far away from other houses and don't mind possibly getting hit with the contents of their scent glands yourself.

    A skunk? That it total BS! He failed to properly identify what he was shooting at....Hey dumba@s, you must be absolutely sure BEFORE you pull the trigger.

    A skunk... less than a foot tall, unless you are measuring it's tail poised to spray and weighing about as much as a small house cat VS. a 9 year old child??? This guy was on something! I agree that he should be charged with Aggravated Stupidity!

    I lived in the wooded areas of Pennsylvania for six years and can't recall any skunks which resembled nine year old girls.

    The article claims they are not sure if charges will be filed? I'm so tired of hearing that "it was just an accident" and nobody is held accountable. Accidents are things that just happen out of our control. This nitwit took a shotgun, failed to properly identify his target and fired a round at something that wasn't a skunk. He needs to be charged and held accountable.

    Isn't it a little early to be dressing up for Halloween? But in all seriousness, I hope she'll be ok.

    every time I read about someone shooting a human because they " thought" it was some type of animal it just blows my mind. Im 42 years old and never in my life have I seen a person that looks anything like a animal. It just proves that these people just blindly shoot and movement and noise. When these incidents happen the shooter should always be charged, at the very least with reckless endangerment!!!!!!!!!!
