Default Character Rule Clarification

Hey guys I was just reading the rulebook for fun when I noticed the rules for shooting at characters. Before I had thought that a character could not be shot at if within 2" of another model or something like that, but in fact it says a character can't be targeted at ALL unless it's the closest model. Is this right? Has there been some FAQ that says otherwise? If you want to see what I'm talking about, check page 51 in the rulebook.

Well pretty much... If im not mistaken I believe that you need to take a leadership test to fire at anyone who is not the closest...

That's true for any unit besides the closest large target (vehicles, artillery or monsterous creatures) or, as we've already discussed, lone characters...who can stand merrily behind infantry meat shields making obscene gestures with impunity (until your assault troops drop in behind him with plasma pistols, chainswords and a mean streak a mile long).
