    Man allegedly shoots at two brothers preparing for target practice in S.C.
    The Associated Press
    BEAUFORT, S.C. — A 19-year-old man picked the wrong time to shoot at two brothers, opening fire just as they got ready to do some target practice, police said. Antoine Robinson was shot once in the arm during the shootout around 4:15 p.m. Monday, Beaufort County deputies said.

    Robinson pulled up to the Beaufort home, got out of his car and started firing at brothers Rodmond Singleton, 24, and Titus Singleton, 18, authorities said.

    The brothers said they were getting ready to shoot target practice and grabbed their guns and fired back, hitting Robinson once, deputies said.

    Robinson was taken to the hospital and released to jail later that night. He has been charged with two counts of assault and battery with intent to kill, authorities said.

    The brothers were not hit, deputies said.

    Deputies continue to investigate the shooting, in part trying to determine if the brothers were licensed to fire the guns, sheriff's spokeswoman Robin McIntosh said.

    Apparently you need a licence to shoot in self defense?

    I wonder what would take so long to figure out if the brothers were legal or not.

    As a side note, it would be interesting if the regulators did come up with a new licenserequirement -- for firing a gun.

    Reminds me of the old Chris Rock bit about charging $5,000 for shooting one bullet. Would, according to economics, solve the gun violence problem...
