Today’s award goes, jointly and severally, to the idiots responsible for this.
Some folks target shooting with high-powered rifles on a Johnson County farm this weekend apparently thought they were being safe, but four bullets ended up in two houses hundreds of yards away — in children’s rooms.
. . .
According to a Greenwood police report, 10 to 14 people were target shooting, but not the homeowner himself. Most of the shooters were teenagers, using AR-15 weapons.
. . .
The residents in the first home hit heard a bang, came into a room to find a puff of smoke that ended up being drywall powder still flying and eventually followed it to a toy box in a children’s play room.
“Inside the toy box was a small stuffed animal that had stuffing coming out of it,” the police report says. “A 5.56-mm bullet was recovered from the stuffed animal.”
The residents of that home called Greenwood police, and while an officer was at the home, he could hear gunfire coming from the east. As he drove in that direction, he learned another home had been hit.
That home, several blocks farther west, was hit twice.
. . .
Johnson County Sheriff Doug Cox said his department handles incidents like this one about once a month.

Way to go, dumbasses. Not only did you endanger lives, you also handed ammunition (you should pardon the expression) to every anti-gunner who wants to demonize responsible gun-owners by associating them with idiots like yourselves!
