It was a hunting accident where the other party did not follow proper procedures. Do you know how many hunting accidents there are in the US each year? If it was pretty much anyone else it may make a small blip on the local news.
Get over it.
...what he said!
It's not the accident per se but how it was handled thereafter. A local sheriff's deputy was turned back by secret service when he went to the ranch to prepare an accident report that evening. The local authority did not get the full picture until the morning after. Imagine a John Q Public trying to pull the same move.
And the reason was so obvious - he was drunk.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
