I myself can't recall any such event. Although it must be in the realm of the possible I suppose. But this certainly reinforces the idea there is a "war" on women. All more common is the Cheney_style shoot at anything that moves - oh heck, just shoot something - even if it isn't moving. Of course my musing are brought to me today due to another go go gun enthusiast - who does not bother with the cardinal rule of hunting.

When Egan / Florida man heard rustling in the woods, he fired in her direction without first making visual confirmation with his intended target. Instead, Simmons was struck in the legs by a .30-caliber bullet from Egan's gun. She was airlifted to the nearby Halifax Health Medical Center where she is listed as being in serious condition.

"He was very sympathetic that he'd shot his girlfriend," Maj. Clair said. "It was an accident. I think it was just a violation of one of the cardinal rules of hunting which is you never shoot what you don't see."
