A Missouri man is being charged with second-degree murder after shooting a man from a float group that he claims to have found on his property.

Thomas Dart Jr. and several friends and family members had stopped on a gravel bar on the Meramec River, near Steelville, when property owner James Robert Crocker emerged with a handgun and confronted the group about trespassing, beginning an argument that ended wtih Crocker shooting Dart in the face at close range.

Another reason I am glad I carry concealed. May not always be practical and I may never get the chance to draw, but the next person behind me will and avenge my death!  ;D

I hope you are more responsible with your handgun than James Robert Crocker.

7 years military training on top of a life time of family (not redneck) responsibility. I consider myself and my wife safe with firearms. Watch out boys, she's packin a .380!

Surprised we don't hear about stories like this more often.  Some crazy idiots out there.

What a dumb assed conjecture!!  The Jackson will not be the next shooting incident like this.  I'm betting we'll be all be worm bait before there is another FU on the water like this one.

And why in the hell would one of the river-runners stoop over for a couple of rocks?  Get back in the boat and depart; address the situation/altercation later, properly.

I'm glad you are able to more accurately predict the future of the Jackson's hotbed than dumb asses like us.  I feel much safer. bd;0

I didn't call you a dumb ass; I said your inference was dumb assed.  On occasion, I have trouble reading as well.

If any of you get snuffed out on the Jackson, I will admit my wrong, and I will respond to your demise in the fashion of Mark Twain

I would like to openly apologize to Drifts.  I was just being a dumb assed tool last evening and on this fine Friday morning.  My comments were totally uncalled for.  I should reserve such remarks for the NC, SC, and GA boys (please note the intentional exclusion of TN).  My bad Drifts!!
