Politeness is a family affair.

Carthage Police Chief Greg Dagnan says the three children didn’t have school because of the bad weather. He says there weren’t any adults at the house, and one of the children was playing with a gun when it fired and hit the ten-year-old.

“Every interview we do, every piece of evidence we gather, really just seems to further indicate that this was an accident,” said Dagnan.

Politeness comes out of the closet.

The victim’s live-in boyfriend told officers he was hanging his coat up on a rack when the gun, a silver Cobra .22-caliber handgun, fell out of a pocket, struck the floor and discharged a round, according to the report.

The victim was standing about 5 feet away and the bullet grazed her head, according to police.

The stupid. It burns.

Provide children with the opportunity to learn politeness.

Police were called at 4:48 p.m. to a home in the 200 block of Alameda Avenue, Chief David Riviere said Thursday in a news release.

“Upon arrival, officers learned that a young child had shot their sibling accidentally with a handgun,” the chief said.

Yet another gun that fires itself.

Chief Lee Harmon said that David Gargrave, 33, of Covington, was killed when a shotgun that he was carrying inside his Regency Court apartment, accidentally discharged.

The gunnularity approacheth apace.

Lap guns; they’re a thing. Sort of like lap dogs, but with a stronger bite.

McIver accidentally shot his wife Sunday, Sept. 25, while the couple was being driven in his car from their farm in Putnam County to their Buckhead residence, a family friend acting as a spokesperson told the Daily Report on Sept. 29.

McIver, who was in the back seat, had a gun resting in his lap for fear of carjackers, and it discharged when the car hit a bump as they traveled through Midtown, the friend, Bill Crane, has said. The bullet went through the front seat, where Diane McIver was sitting, and struck her in the back, according to media reports and accounts from Tex McIver’s spokespeople.

The stupid. It burns.
