Guns don't kill people...

...complete fucking idiots with AK-47s kill people. Surely there is no one out there who would argue that, once Michael Johnson of Vancouver Washington is convicted, barring him from owning or using firearms for the rest of his days would not be either unconstitutional or unwarranted.

Mr. Johnson was firing his weapons, including an AK47 and two handguns, into a lake across from a crowded camp ground. His shots were ricocheting into the ground sending campers scurrying for cover. Fortunately, by dumb luck, no one was injured. When told that he shots had ricochet off the water into the camp ground the 25 year old Mr. Johnson apparently replied that "he didn't know bullets could do that" and presumably returned to picking his nose.

The appropriate punishment? No guns; ever again and maybe some jail time.
