Man shoots girl for walking a few steps onto his property

FWIW, I'm not entirely anti-gun, I think there are situations and occupations they're certainly warranted. But I don't buy the whole "2nd amendment is my God-given right, guns solve everything and make the world a perfect place" argument either.
