Anyone who's known me a while knows I'm a strong supporter of the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution and the Right to keep and bear arms.
But I do realize that there should be a few exceptions. Some folks should never be allowed to possess firearms, like convicted felons, mentally unstable folks, people with a history of domestic violence...
And this dumbass.
Apparently a Bell South lineman was shot by a Rome, Georgia man late last week when the man erroneously mistook the lineman for a squirrel.

How the hell do you mistake a full grown man on a telephone pole as a squirrel? Did he have a furry suit and bushy tail?
The last squirrel I saw didn't look anything like a telephone company lineman. Put a little hard had on the rodent and he still wouldn't look like a lineman.
The police won't be pressing charges and neither will the lineman.
Here's some fucknut out with a shotgun shooting at things and mistakes a full grown man as a squirrel and you're not going to lock him up? If anything he should be charged with reckless endangerment.
Or Felony Stupid.
The one thing for sure is I'm not going to be climbing any telephone poles in Georgia any time soon.
