Facilitate familial politeness.
A six-year-old boy was shot in the stomach by his five-year-old brother, in the third child shooting in four days in Texas.
Relatives say the youngster, named Hayden, loved to play cops and robbers with his little brother and told local news station KHOUthat they fear the boys may have thought the weapon was a toy.
Politeness is its own punishment.
Witnesses said DeHayes spun the .22 caliber revolver around on his forefinger, ‘gunslinger-style’, when it went off, hitting Mrs Hoover in the head.
The state has refused to prosecute because the incident was deemed accidental.
And though the victim’s family has launched an appeal to see him tried for manslaughter, DeHayes insists he has already been punished enough.
A permit for youthful politeness:
A three-year-old boy accidentally shot himself inside a home in northwest Harris County Friday, according to police. . . .
Harris County Precinct 5 Captain Romeo Chapa tells us they believe the child’s parents have a concealed handgun permit and that the child may have found the gun and accidentally shot himself.
The child didn’t make it.
Be polite to your neighbors.
A city resident told police that at 5:45 p.m. Thursday, she and her boyfriend and juvenile daughter were inside their apartment in the 600 block of Greenbrier Court when they heard a loud bang and a bullet came through the wall of the living room.
The round struck a piece of furniture in the dining area before it was spent, the report said. A few minutes later, Swisher, the victim’s next-door neighbor, knocked on the door and apologized for the incident.
Deadeye was arrested. The story does not indicate whether the charges against him include at least one count of stupid.
I imagine that that’s police-speak for “little girl.”
The stupid. It burns.
Politeness is mandatory when students are at home.
A tragic accident now has a 14-year-old girl fighting for her life. A teenager was handling a gun at a Vinton home when the weapon discharged.
And we have yet another gun that discharges all on its ownsome.
Gunnuttery means never being responsible for guns that fire themselves.
Be polite at the intersection of Stupid Street and Gun Nut Way.
A man accidentally shot himself in the neck Monday while at the stoplight at Lovers Lane and Fruit of the Loom Drive.
Police concluded the man accidentally discharged his gun inside his car when the gun shifted between the driver’s seat and the console. The man reached for the gun and unintentionally fired it while reaching, Grimsley said.
“‘Reaching’ for what?” one wonders.
Politeness is essential to proper parenting.
A family, including the mother and the son, were climbing out of a pickup truck in a parking lot near the intersection of Shennum Drive and Palmer Wasilla Highway when the mother’s revolver fell out of its holster, according to Alaska State Trooper media reports.
The gun fell to the pavement hammer-first and discharged one round on impact, which went through the (four-year old–ed.) boy’s leg above the knee and lodged in the trim of a nearby building, according to the release.
Not only did this gun discharge itself all on its ownsome, it fell out of its holster without apparent human intervention. No one could have figured out how to keep the gun in its holster. Life is just funny that way; sometimes, a gun’s gotta do what a gun’s gotta do . . . .
To quote the Jefferson Airplane, politeness “leaves you no, no place to hide.”
Sheriff’s Capt. Gayle Wells said Dana Beckett and her boyfriend were visiting the home in the Sunnywood subdivision Thursday when she was reportedly shot by accident while seated in the restroom.
“Two other people in the house were handling a firearm that accidentally discharged, and (the bullet) went through a wall and struck her in the upper left chest,” Wells said.
And another gun that fires itself. . . .
The stupid. It burns.
The polite do not discriminate. A target is a target.
A pair of area hunters had their licenses revoked and were issued a fine for their involvement in the accidental shooting of a pair of horses on a property in Livingston County last month.
Christian H. Smith, 48, of Phelps, and Glenn R. Gosson, 47, of Fairport, accidentally shot the horses while coyote hunting on a property on Moore Road in the town of West Sparta on Jan. 24, according to the state Department of Environmental Conservation.
Because horses and coyotes are hard to distinguish when viewed through a gun sight . . . .
The polite are always loaded.
According to police, the man was cleaning his loaded shotgun around 7:45 p.m. when it discharged. The shotgun pellets hit the man’s son in the stomach.
Now, about those IQ tests for gun ownersh–oh, never mind.
I have cleaned many guns in my time; the raw unvarnished stupidity of cleaning a loaded gun leaves me flat speechless.
Do not allow politeness to take a back seat to anything.
A 4-year-old Indiana girl accidentally shot her father from the back seat of the family’s car, and it’s the dad who faces felony charges, prosecutors said Sunday.
. . . Paulson was shot Jan. 31 when his daughter, who wasn’t in a child restraint seat, pulled the loaded .40 caliber Smith & Wesson handgun from the pocket of her dad’s overalls, according to a probable cause affidavit, prosecutors said. It went off and hit Paulson in his upper right arm.
Another child is given the opportunity to exercise politeness.
Police say the 10-year-old daughter of a California sheriff’s lieutenant shot her younger sister with their father’s gun in an apparent accident. . . .
Gomez tells the Fresno Bee that the girls’ father was getting ready for work and had removed the magazine on his handgun before leaving it on a bed while he got ready for work.
He says the 10-year-old grabbed the gun and discharged a bullet left in the chamber hitting the younger girl.
In related news of the polite, gun nut claims that being required to unload his gun near schools infringes on his right to be polite.
I suspect my two or three regular readers find these report on the courteous to be tiresome.
I find the ammosexual carnage tiresome.
