Man Shot In Accident After Laughing At Cheney
(AP) LAFAYETTE, Colo. Hours after laughing about Vice President Dick Cheney's hunting mishap, Josh Kayser was himself shot by a friend during a hunting expedition.
The 21-year-old Lafayette man was taken to the hospital Monday night after his girlfriend accidentally shot him while they were trailing a raccoon that had been preying on chickens on his family's property.
"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," he said Tuesday.
Kayser was crouched down to look under a shed where he thought a wounded raccoon was hiding, and his 17-year-old girlfriend accidentally shot him with a .22-caliber rifle. Police have not identified the girlfriend.

I second that
I like the headline.
This sounds like a wound in the seat of his pants.
WHY THE HELL DIDN'T DICK CHENEY REPORT THIS SOONER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Instant Karma's gonna get you.
She got away???
How did it react to any medications she was taking?
If he dies, will be be tried for involuntary manslaughter?
Why wasn't the WH media pool called to report this?
Cheney's fault, definitely.
Thanks for the laugh!
You forgot to ask: "Would it have been worse if he had died?"
One you might like ping!
I think I would still take the #8 shot from a 28ga. rather than a .22 long range round.
Interesting, I wonder where she shot him.
Well he better marry her.
She has already shot him so the worst is over for a potential marriage.
This story reminds me to stay away from the sins of blasphemy, pride and arrogance altogether.
I don't think hunting accidents are all that rare. My sister knows a man who was shot and it was not good, although he did recover thankfully. I don't recall her saying that anyone was arrested either.
I'm waiting for the liberal nut to shoot himself and claim he did it because Cheney got away with attempted murder...
HA HA HA!
