Had some pinhead sight in his .30-06 on a transformer out here years ago with similar effect. Don’t they know that’s what squirrels are for?
First rule of shooting power lines is to leave the area rapidly and deny that you were ever near.
Good thing he didn’t shoot his eye out.
12 years old is old enough to know better. Stupid little jerk.

High powered rifle? It's always a high powered rifle according to the media..
Well, that means all 12 year old boys will have to be confiscated and banned forthwith.

As a boy, I once tossed a wire coat hanger up onto some power lines. The resulting blinding purple flash and rain of molten metal so charmed my companions that we spent the rest on the evening trying to reproduce the results with about fifty hangers. We never got another light show. It’s amazing how much dangerous fun we had in those bad old unsupervised days.

Just a few short weeks ago this would not have even made the news.
But as usual the media is continuing to bring up every single issue that has a firearm involved. No matter how insignificant.

Reminds me of a WILLIE AND JOE cartoon by Bill Mauldin in WWII.
The boys are shooting at insulators on a transmission line.
Willie fires a shot and Joe says...”Dammit willie, it wasn’t your turn!”

There is a lesson here all wannabe revolutionaries could learn when they come for the guns.
A 12-year-old north Florida boy shot a high-powered rifle and hit a 69,000-volt transmission line, causing almost 6,000 customers in Lynne, Silver Springs Shores, Silver Springs and Ocklawaha to lose service for several hours.
I couldn't throw one more than about 8 and a half feet unloaded.

I’m sure some bearded savages took notice and will be talking about this real soon.
