Shot by the Vice President

How many people can say they've been shot by the Vice President of the United States? 78-year-old Harry Whittington can.

Whittington shot a bird and went to look for it in the tall grass, while Cheney and the third hunter walked to another spot and found a second covey.

Whittington "came up from behind the vice president and the other hunter and didn't signal them or indicate to them or announce himself," Armstrong told the Associated Press in an interview.

"The vice president didn't see him," she continued. "The covey flushed and the vice president picked out a bird and was following it and shot. ...Harry was in the line of fire and got peppered pretty good."

Those who understand guns know that being hit from a shotgun from a distance pretty much just breaks the skin. However, I'm wondering what kind of reaction this will get from gun control advocates. When people read, "The Vice President shot someone...", I hope they read past the headline.
