No Wendy...

...the sky is not falling...

TORONTO -- A former American military sniper who fired his gun to scare off a stray dog in a rural area of Ontario deserves another trial on charges of careless use of a firearm, the province's top court ruled Friday. In its decision, the Court of Appeal said two lower courts were wrong to convict John Batty on the basis that the simple act of firing his gun was dangerous, and noted their rulings could have serious implications for those who live outside urban areas.

Wow. Glad the court of appeal made that ruling, otherwise it could become to illegal to skeet shoot or sight in your .243 in RURAL areas.
