No Guns On School Grounds

(Newark Star-Ledger)

An F-16 fighter pilot on a training mission missed his target at the Warren Grove Gunnery Range, instead spraying 25 rounds from his 20mm cannon into the Little Egg Harbor (N.J.) Intermediate School, which is three miles from the range. Luckily, it was 10:00 at night and no children were present. Col. Brian Webster, commander of the 177th Fighter Wing of the New Jersey Air Guard, said the shooting was accidental. “We don’t know why it fired,” Webster said. “The pilot was flying along, and the gun discharged.” One parent was upset at the news. “I never really thought it was a possibility that they could make this kind of mistake,” said Brian Farreny. “But it worries me now that it could happen.”

… “Could” ? 🙂
