    Say what you mean, mean what you say, but don't say it mean.
    We are all just trying to make sense of an unimaginable crime.

    OMG

    I expect that commercial insurance for shooting ranges will change a great deal in the next few weeks.

    So two adults (no relationship noted), 9 y/o boy, & his sister were in desert at 5:00 am and had several firearms w them.
    How dark or light is it at 5:00am s. of Phoenix in early July, when this happened?

    W. linked articles, a few ppl ask whether there was an actual ricochet or bad judgment w guns & a desire to coverup..

    I did not find any follow up articles about whether charges were brought. Anyone?
