Someone Doesn't Watch MythBusters, Or They'd Have Planned This Better

As a fan of the Constitution, I believe that intelligent people have the right to keep and bear arms.  Please notice the qualifier in that sentence.  I know gun owners who are careful and responsible with their weapons and I'm frankly not worried about them.

It's people like THIS that worry me....

William Maser lives in Georges Township, PA (about 35 miles southeast of Pittsburgh), is 54 years old, and his hobby is recreating weapons from the 19th century.  Specifically, he loves to make cannons.  Today, he fired off his latest project.  The payload, a 2 inch, 2 pound cannonball, ricocheted and struck a house about 400 yards away, going through a window and a wall before stopping in a closet.  No one, either from the house or from Narnia, was hurt.

Maser has been charged with reckless endangerment, criminal mischief, and disorderly conduct.  He is sorry and promises to not shoot his cannons off on his property in town.

Gimme a "D!"  Gimme a "U!"  Gimme an "H!"  What's that spell?  "DUUUUUUUUUUUH!"
