  •  Evidentally it's OK to leave your gun where (3+ / 0-)

    kids can get it.

    During the past week it was announced that suspects in two accidental child shooting cases, both from Oregon, would face no charges. The first involved a 4-year-old who found a gun and shot himself, and the second, an adult male who accidentally shot his girlfriend's 9-year-old daughter while practicing quick draws with a loaded pistol. By way of contrast, there was a third case resolved this week, involving a Minnesota father whose 4-year-old found his gun and killed his 2-year-old brother. No charges in the first two cases, but a guilty verdict and the possibility of 10 years in prison in the third.
    How many of these do you have to read before it sinks in that things aren't OK.

    Here's another one from below.

    the shooting was immediately ruled an accident, and there won't be any charges or further investigation. So let's not criticize this young man because it was just an accident and accidents happen.

    Apparently that's what passes for justice in Texas these days.

    These people won't miss a beat in their ownership of guns. Heaven forbid they lose the right to own a gun.
