Michael Cornell, of Jacksonville, Florida was at home Wednesday night when a bullet came flying through the wall of his home from the apartment next door. Cornell said the bullet landed on the staircase in his home just minutes after his 8-year-old daughter had been playing on the stairs. 
According to Cornell, this is the second time in the past few years his neighbor has unintentionally fired a bullet into his home while cleaning his gun. Both times Cornell called the police, and both times the police said there was nothing they could do. According to the police, "the law favors the gun owner and not those affected. 
As no one was injured, the law does not allow enforcement to apprehend or cite the offender."

You know I have the solution for this, right?
Too bad the victim of this unacceptable negligence is in Florida. There isn't a more difficult state in the union in which to try for reasonable gun-rights decisions.
