You can't control a bullet once it leaves the barrel but you can definitely control a ling jig. You can stop it anytime you wish. Your analogy is not revelant. In forty years of pier fishing I have seen some pier anglers hit boats with their jigs, (which again I do not agree with), but I have never seen an individual in a boat, kayak, surfboard, ever get hit. I did see a scuba diver get hooked by a jig, but that was done purposely and the guy on the pier was arrested, and rightfully so.So...using your methodology, I can shoot at all the people I want, as long as I don't hit them. I'm a good shot and if I wanted to hit someone I could, so it should be okay.
