    The second is incorrect, as the bullet passed out of the house and struck the child in the backyard.

    I'll take exception to Cap'n Frogbert's comment:

    I've patched-up cops who have shot themselves doing the exact same idiotic thing.  "Practicing" for competition, "working-in" the new holster, whatever the excuse - stupidity of using a LOADED GUN is the root-cause of each incident.

    The country was in peril; he was jeopardizing his traditional rights of freedom and independence by daring to exercise them.” ~ Joseph Heller, Catch-22
