California AG Suing Gun Club Over Forest Fires

This topic has been beaten to death on this blog.

Grotesque Government Fire Suppression Polices over the past century by Smokey the Bear and his ilk have led to a astronomical fuel load in the nation’s forests which create monster forest fires that kill Bambi and Thumper and all the other little critters the loony left claims to adore.

Tantalizing Excerpt:

Attorney general suing igniters of 2006 fires
By Ryan Sabalow
Wednesday, August 20, 2008

Shooters at a gun range in Junction City and rock harvesters in Whitmore who unwittingly sparked separate fires in 2006 are being sued by the California attorney general for repayment of the state’s firefighting costs.

In one lawsuit, the state’s attorneys seek $6.36 million from the managers of the Weaverville Rod & Gun Club and the organizers of a National Rifle Association sanctioned shooting event in which a sparking bullet is alleged to have caused the 3,126-acre Junction Fire, which burned one home.

The suit, filed in late July in Trinity County Superior Court, alleges that the gun club was hosting a “service rifle shoot” on July 29, 2006, in which participants where firing assault weapons, including Ruger Mini 14s and Armalite AR-15s.

  1. I’d like to read a copy of the suit. Anyone have a copy?

    Sparking bullets (if that’s the suit’s claim) are part of the movies. Not real life. Brass and lead are to soft a metal to spark when striking other metals or rocks.

    Any ballistic-scientific expert called to testify will put this to rest.

    Now it is possible a tracer round was fired and started a fire. I’ve seen that a time or two on ranges throughout my military career. Or a fire was started by discharged propellant that was still burning.

    Other than those two scenarios I’d say the state doesn’t have a leg to stand on.

    Nice site. Found it while looking for information on the AR-57.
