Anyone who is incapable of handling any firearm with absolute safety does not under any circumstances deserve to own or use a firearm. "A neighbor, Thomas B. Jadlowski, thought he saw a deer in his back yard 200 yards away and fired a single shot. Then he heard a scream." ("He thought he saw a deer and fired his pistol. Now his neighbor is dead.", Washington Post, 11/24/2017)

 

I don't care that the shooter called for help and rendered first aid. That was the absolute minimum he had to do once he, the shooter, took matters in his own hands and deliberately loaded a handgun, pointed it at an unidentified target and pulled the trigger.

WNCN of Tennessee is reporting on yet another "accidental" shooting that is no accident. In "2 accidentally shot at church during church shooting discussion" (11/16/2017), the story is told of a fool who proudly showed off to fellow parishioners the hand gun he brought to church; and then managed to shoot his wife and himself.

 

This is NOT an accident. Someone had to pick up the firearm, load it and pull the trigger. This was at best gross negligence. I don't know how this guy's wife feels about all this, but I see no reason this man should ever have access to a firearm ever again.

 

This is just one more example of why we need to inject personal, business and social responsibility into our discussions regarding guns.

"The 7-year-old son of Justin Ryan Jones said his father was pretending to fire at his sister when the gun went off and he shot the 9-year-old girl, according to an arrest affidavit." ("Report: Father pretends to shoot daughter, gun goes off", Temple Daily Telegram, 02/22/2016)

 

At least there were some charges this time around, but it sure is a great thing we have all these firearms running around .... right?

Woman driving down the road in pickup truck with four year old son in back seat of cab apparently not even strapped into his booster seat. Four year old son finds .45 calibre handgun (ie. unsecured) and accidentally shoots mom (ie. unsecured handgun had round chambered).

 

How many ways did this negligent mother endanger her child? Thankfully the boy only seriously wonded mom as otherwise he would have had to live with killing her for the rest of his life. Once mom was shot it is very easy to envision any number of ways the truck could have wrecked that involve serious injury or death to the boy. And it seems that mom didn't have the decency to strap her son in!

 

Full story at "Woman tells Putnam County deputy that son, 4, shot her in back while she was driving" (The Florida Times Union, 03/08/2016) ... oh yeah, the police don't know if there are any criminal charges to be filed. Nice going locked and loaded mom. The only good thing is you son shot you and not some passerby.

A 7 year old boy who was shot in the head by a sibling handling their mom's loaded handgun while they and two other other children waited in the car. Mom and stepfather had gone into a Verizon store to pay a bill. An earlier version of this story read "According to a news release, four children had been left in a vehicle while their mother and step-father went inside a business to pay a bill. During that time, investigators discovered that one of the children found a loaded semi-automatic pistol inside their mother's purse. When the child tried to remove the magazine, the firearm discharged and struck the 7-year-old male victim." ("Crossville PD: 7-year-old dies after being accidentally shot by another child", WBIR, 01/25/2016)

 

According to the news story the Crossville police called the above a "tragic accident", but the truth is this was no accident at all - it was ciminal negligence at a bare minimum. Thanks to all the NRA fear inducers and the insistance that we all need to run around armed with firearms loaded and ready to go.
