Man who laughed at Cheney gets shot himself
WorldNetDaily.com ^ | February 15, 2006

IRONY CAN BE PRETTY IRONIC Colorado man who laughed Monday when he first read Vice President Dick Cheney had shot a hunting companion was himself injured just hours later when he was accidentally blasted by his girlfriend in his own hunting mishap.

"I read that thing about the vice president and said to myself 'How can you shoot your friend with your gun?' And look what happened," said Josh Kayser of Lafayette, Colo.

According to the Longmont Daily Times-Call, the 21-year-old man was on the trail of raccoons that had been preying on chickens on his family's property.

As Kayser crouched down to look under a shed, his 17-year-old girlfriend, whose name was not released by authorities, crouched down behind him and accidentally shot him with a .22-caliber rifle.

The bullet reportedly entered behind his right ear, exited through his chin and ended up lodging in his left forearm.

Doctors chose not to remove the bullet, lest they cause nerve damage.

"I feel fine," Kayser told the paper. "It feels like a cigarette burn."

Kayser was discharged from Avista Adventist Hospital after spending the night, and police decided against filing any charges against his girlfriend.

This guy's girlfriend better hope he doesn't die or she could be brought up on negligent homicide charges.

Sorry, but the nerve dameage is already there. Not to mention the heavy metal poisoning from the lead bullet, and the possibility of infection.

You mean to tell me that this was first reported in some no-name paper and not by CNN or the networks, he and his girlfriend are obviously trying to cover something up./sarcasm off

If he HAD died without any other witnesses to the incident, she'd have a hard time convincing the cops it was anything but deliberate. A bullet behind the ear sounds like an execution.

Did she have the proper permit to shoot a raccoon, this really needs to be investigated. This should be on the front page of every paper in the world!

If the guys is crouched down and the shooter is crouched down - HOW does bullet enter behind his ear and travel DOWN to his arm? Sounds like she was standing up behind him and missed the back of his head.

No, of course not. What it's really like is when you're dancing nekkid on the roof of your car during Burning Man, listening to Gay reggae and swilling a 40-oz. Colt 45 and your girlfriend opens the hood and you slip and your butt hits the hot engine block.

Oh, come on, don't tell me it never happened to you...

With apologies to past, present, and/or future girlfriends, this would just never happen in my culture.

Girlfriends go along on the pre-scout, the scout, the remembrance trip, etc.

But never on the hunt.

It's the Code of the West.
