    When a person dies deep sea diving, friends and relatives say, well he/she died doing something he/she loved.

    When a person dies in a car race, friends and relatives say he or she died doing something he/she loved.

    Or if an equestrian dies in an event the same is said. Or para sailing...

    Or a golfer that gets killed by a ball or a hockey player that dies from a hockey puck...They died doing something they loved....

    A couple of weeks ago an extreme skiier died skiing, friends and relatives said he died doing what he loved. (another died this week)

    But what if if a shooter died by accidental gun shot?(heaven forbid) The antigunners and the press would say:
    Remove all guns from the market
    Add another law that keeps others from shooting
    Enforce new laws on ammunition
    Add more penalties for gun owners
    more investigations and paperwork
    And so on...

    Where is the equality (for lack of a better word)? Or like Rodney Dangerfield said, "Can't get no respect"... Isn't targetshooting a 'lovable sport'?
