ME: Shooting Victim's Family Proposes Hunting Legislation

By News 8 WMTW.com

NORWAY, Maine -- The family of a woman killed in a hunting accident is working to prevent future fatal shootings.

As part of a plea deal, Timothy Bean, 51, of Paris, this week was sentenced to 30 days in prison for shooting Megan Ripley, 18, in the chest last December.

Now, Ripley's father is proposing a law called The Children's Safety Act. The legislations would require hunters to receive written permission from landowners before hunting on their land.

Troy Ripley said that if he had known there were hunters on his property on the day of the shooting, his daughter would still be alive.
