The daughter of a militia member was shot and wounded Sunday after a local meeting of the III% Idaho group,

The 12-year-old girl, whose name was not released, was taken by helicopter to a hospital for treatment after the shooting at the Rupert Gun Range, reported the Twin Falls Times-News...

...It's not clear who was handling the weapon when it fired, wounding the girl.

Brandon Curtiss, the president of the state III% militia group...said militia group members wanted to take target practice after a county meeting of the militia group--which was involved in last month's armed occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.

Curtiss said a militia member's gun accidentally fired while cleaning the weapon, and the bullet struck a metal table beneath a shelter and ricocheted.

eye'm thynkin':  I can't help but be reminded of the bill currently making its way through the Iowa legislature that would make it legal for children--of any age--to carry a weapon.  It will be safe, they say, because there will be adult supervision.  Well, that didn't work so well here did it?

And who in the hell cleans a loaded gun?
