Hunting’s Connection To Human Crime

Priscilla Cohn sleuthed the following:

In Omaha, NE, 19 year old Kyle Bormann shot and killed a young woman. He used a high-powered rifle to shoot a stranger, Brittany Williams, who was going through a KFC drive-thru. Bormann owned the legal weapons. It was a Winchester model 670A 243 caliber bolt action rifle with a scope. Bormann’s sister says everyone in the family is an avid hunter.

Reporters and researchers should include the hunting factor in their reports of crime committed with hunting weapons. We’ve noticed that local papers will include it in early reports, but it disappears in later coverage.

We put a call in to Walmart in Fishkill, NY to see if they sold the model rifle below and, guess what, they do!!!!! While they didn’t have the Winchester rifle, they had a 242 caliber bolt action rifle with a scope by Remington. Their price was $329.87. Combine these firearms with possible medication or illegal drug use and you have a super lethal mix. Ask Walmart to get out of the firearms business.
