DA: Shooter's spark caused Mount Diablo blaze

Original post made on Nov 28, 2013

A spark from a stray bullet hitting a rock led to the fire that burned a swath across Mount Diablo, according to an investigation by the Contra Costa County District Attorney's Office. No charges will be filed in the case, however.

Sorry, it sounds like a little BS flowing down hill and some cover up.

A rifle range on private property...who was using the range..."law officers" or just guys shooting into the mountain..

A spot fire 1,000 feet away from the original fire while fire crews were on the site caused the massive second fire...yea right...

Thanks for listening, Julia Pardini

Is it possible to find something - anything to be positive about, to be for, or to be supportive of? It seems that you have something negative to say about everything. You seem to be sad, lonely, and negative. Consider this. I don't believe for a moment that you are less than intelligent, so consider putting some of your time into helping the community that you live in, instead of being against it. There really is a lot to be thankful for.

You're making a funny, right Dave? I mean, you can use a computer, so you mush have some functioning gray matter.
The current estimate is that there are around 350 to 370 MILLION guns in the U.S. The current population is around 315 to 330 million, depending on whose number you accept.
So, using my advanced calculus degree, that seems to work out at more than one gun per man, woman, child, infant, and geezer. Yes, thank heavens someone still has firearms. Why heck Dave, we may wake up tomorrow and find that aliens have snatched them all! Or big bag O.

Sorry, that should have been "must". That, or my gray matter is as mushy as Dave's-

Derek: either that, or your sarcasmometer needs calibrating. Dave's post should've pinned it.
