Great moments in polite parenting:
Adelaide Clinger, who attended Centennial Junior High, was accidentally shot and killed inside her home, 1941 Cooper St., on Nov. 23.
Kaysville police have released very few details about the shooting. But according to a search warrant filed in 2nd District Court, officers discovered upon initial investigation that “adults in the home were examining handguns.”
Clinger’s father placed a loaded 9mm handgun in his pants pocket, the affidavit states. That’s when a 10-year-old sibling “accessed the firearm and discharged the firearm,” striking Adelaide.
The investigation is continuing because these things take time.
The hunt for politeness continues apace.
While trying to shoot at some pheasants, one of the men in the group slipped in the mud and accidentally fired his 12-gauge shotgun at Newbold, striking him in the back.
Understand that I have nothing against hunters or hunting. I grew up with hunters who hunted.
It’s the stupid that gets my goat.

The hunt for politeness marches on.
‘Splain me, Lucy, why this sort of stuff is an “accident” and not “negligent homicide”?
Play politely . . .
Dylan Harvey, 19, and Tony Roe, 23, were rolling the gun’s chamber and taking turns pointing it at each other, investigators said. Eventually, when Harvey pointed the gun at Roe, it went off. A bullet hit Roe in the chest, according to the Sheriff’s Office, but his injuries are not expected to be life-threatening. He was taken to Bayfront Health St. Petersburg, deputies said.
. . . and another gun that apparently just goes off all on its ownsome.
Being polite at the open-carry-out:
“A gentleman was eating at the Subway on Central avenue just before the shooting occurred,” said Lieutenant Detective John Stewart.
The gentleman, who was carrying a loaded semi-automatic handgun did not have a secure holster for the gun.
“As he was leaving, he bent down to pick up an aluminum can and his gun hit the ground and discharged, hitting him in the thigh,” said Stewart.
Guns and stupid go together so well.
Be polite at home.
Deputies responded and found 41-year-old Tracie Shiflet dead in a duplex home at about 6:30 a.m.
Deputies said the victim’s longterm boyfriend, 33-year-old Edison Garcia-Muniz, was at Shiflet’s house, and they were handling his gun when it went off.
According to the story, he didn’t know the gun was loaded.
They never think to check, do they?
Gun nut paradise approacheth apace.

Their wounds are not life-threatening, Minneapolis police spokesman John Elder said. The shooting occurred near the Minneapolis Central Library by the intersection of Hennepin Ave and N. 3rd Street.
The police have no idea (as my father would have said) “who shot John.”
If it walks like a deer and quacks like a dee–oh, wait.

There’s no politeness like highly trained politeness.
