Stray bullet wounds man, kills woman across street in N. Georgia town

A thread about this was locked in General Discussion for being "off topic"..... I promise it won't get locked in the Georgia Group - discuss away.

A Texas woman died late Saturday after she was struck by a stray gunshot in the town of Helen in North Georgia.

Police said the bullet came from a small-caliber handgun carried by a 53-year-old man from Jasper, Ga. The gun accidentally discharged, and the bullet traveled across Helen’s tourist-laden Main Street and struck the woman in the side...........

Officers from the Helen Police Department responded to a call of shots fired at 10:41 p.m. Saturday. They first found the 53-year-old man, identified as Glenn Patrick Lampien, sitting on a bench, his hand bleeding. Officers then learned of a second victim, the Texas woman across the street, apparently struck by the same bullet........

The shooting occurred less than two months after a new law took effect in Georgia that greatly extended gun owners’ rights to carry weapons in public places. Bars are among the locations covered by House Bill 60.

2. Many more innocent people, including children,

will have to die or be injured so that gun-humpers will feel powerful.

3. Glenn said he needed the gun in case the

Waiter brought him a Freigeist Bierkultur Abraxxxas instead of a Roggenbier. A good pistol-whipping will teach those waiters!
