A man visiting Busch Garden's in Tampa, Florida, was struck by what police say is a stray bullet that was likely fired by someone outside of the amusement park during a July 4th celebration. A Busch Garden's spokeswoman said: "According to Tampa Police, a guest of the park was struck by a stray bullet fired from outside the park's property following a 4th of July celebration. The guest was transported to Tampa General Hospital and is in stable condition. We are working closely with the Tampa Police Department on this incident as the safety of Busch Gardens Tampa Bay's guests, team members and animals in our care is always our top priority."

Tech like www.shotspotter.com or crowd apps to detect gun shot location should help LEO track down and arrest most shooters in the future.

Just some patriot exercising Second Amendment Rights by firing into Busch Gardens, the NRA approves as it is a RIGHT.

Gun-nuts are lacking in some fundamental way to around shooting into the air. Bullets come down, you bunch of dip••••s! This happens all the time around the rootn' tootin' holidays.

We have Shannon's law in AZ . Some poor girl minding her own business in her backyard. I mean the odds are better to win the lottery but it happened. Don't give me any bullfecalmatter about gun owners respect and all that celebratory gunfire in the air happens all the time. Heard it last night.

This is what happens when you turn amusement parks into gun free zones. Drunken yahoos and stray bullets don't read signs!

The only solution to this is for other more responsible people to buy guns and start firing them into the air.

Yeah, this is totally a problem limited to "Reich wing troglodytes", I didn't realize how many of those were in South Central and East LA:

Something very much like this happened to me. Some friends and I where hanging out in a park, and some moron was firing a shotgun into the air, and you could hear the dropping pellets tearing through the leaves of the trees all around us. I started shouting "Cease fire! Cease fire! We're down range!" and everybody in the park picked up the call, but he didn't stop. I don't know what goes through peoples minds when you you hear plaintive cries for mercy and ignore them, I guess it's sort of like how some people think blatant censorship makes sense or how religious oppression of women is cultural enrichment. But damn. We all ran for it.

Also, the punishment for this should be to be shot in the face by Dick Cheney, and then have to apologize to him. Justice, not revenge.

In previous work I inspected a warehouse in south-central LA. When asked about the roof of the building (about 50,000 square feet) the owner said when his roofer last inspected it he found 50 slugs after the most recent New Year's Eve celebration.

Glad we have so many guns and cautious gun owners in this country--not.
