Gunshots Fired at "Dukes of Hazzard" Star

11/2/2006 9:06 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

John SchneiderTMZ has learned that '80s TV heartthrob John Schneider, who played Bo Duke in the classic "Dukes of Hazzard" TV series, was shot at (but not hit) on the way to a screening of his new movie in Enterprise, Alabama earlier today.

According to Schneider, who currently co-stars in the TV show "Smallville," he and a stunt coordinator were towing three vehicles used in the his new movie "Collier & Co.," when a deafening blast forced the men to pull over.

The two men were shocked to find that a bullet had ripped through the wing window of a Dodge Charger they were towing, which had been used as a stunt car in the film.

Despite the scare, both men were unharmed and still managed to make it on time to the sold-out premiere.

He's not on Smallville anymore; he was unceremoniously killed off last season.

Thankfully, life does not imitate art in this case!

You mean they're STILL pissed off in Alabama because he left "The Dukes of Hazzard"?

Schneider is a notorious right wing, pro gun kind of guy. I wonder if he'll change his mind now about gun laws and "the right to bear arms."

IF he was really shot at, he can be sure it was by either a) a right-wing conservative, or b) someone in the military. [That place is near the largest military heliport in the world.]

I find this story hard to believe.

To #4, I am by no means a pro-gun kind of person but I believe we should be able to bear guns to defend our selves IF and only IF we're willing to deal with the consecuences. For example: being shot at. -Aldana-

Did you all read # 4's comments. Can you believe the anti-gun libs out there. The only thing Mr. Schneider needed at that moment was a Glock to FIRE BACK! You libs are such panzy losers. Always wanting to destroy our American, God given rights! #4.....read the constitution. Idiot.

I will never own a gun, because I do not need one. If I do not own a gun, no one can ever steal it and use it in a crime. Times change wake up fools.

Hey, #7? Our "American, GOD-GIVEN" rights?!? Where the hell does God say "Let there be light and let all those moronic web posters in Alabama have guns". Separation of church and state? Ever heard of it, buttmunch?

I don't believe he was shot at. Had to be a stry bullet from someone shooting in the woods along the road - it happens. And for you pathetic Libs taking advantage of every opportunity to put down Republicans --- get a life! Stop drinking the Kool Aid - grow a brain - read the papers - educate yourselves - instead of being blindly led by the liberal media and the Libs in government. Boy, they got patsies in you all - all they want is power and you all are playing into their hands.

I am a pro gun guy but believe in gun safety. The best way to put it is with the saying you have probably all seen at one time or another.

"If we out law guns, only criminals will have them."
