"Coroner says man was shot to death following autopsy." Might want to reword this, or it will show up on journalist bloopers.

Just reaffirms my opiinion about ever going again to the rifle range in the Francis Marion. Went once, realized the complete and utter seclusion, which is understandable at a firearms range, realized that if someone wants my firearms, even if I am with others, all they have to do is hide behind a tree, shoot us, take our firearms, and leave us for the front page of the paper.
