Re Allen Lingenfelter's "Just wing him" (Forum, July 19):
"Firing a gun into the air like the cowboys," where is the stray bullet going to land?
Lingenfelter may benefit from a gun-safety class. Better yet, look up the odds of someone disarming you if you pull a gun but don't intend to use it.
Many people have also died from being "winged."
The solution may be better education and communication, but I doubt it will come from second-guessing the past.
