Inculcate politeness from an early age.
A student brought a loaded handgun to an elementary school in the city’s Tioga section Wednesday morning, but a police investigation determined it was an innocent mistake involving his father.
The 28-year-old father had the gun, which he is licensed to carry, when he was taking out the trash and didn’t want people to see it, so he put it in his son’s school bag, police said. The father forgot about the gun and went to work.
No charges will be filed because of course they won’t.
Honor thy father and thy mother with thy politeness.
A Mississippi woman was severely injured on Tuesday after her son accidentally shot her in the face.
WDAM reported that Richard Lawrence told officers he was sitting in his truck showing his mother his new .38 caliber pistol when the gun mistakenly discharged, shooting the woman in the face.
Thus passeth another day
in the garden of the NRA.
Be polite at graduation ceremonies and other solemn occasions.
Two people were hurt, one seriously, in an accidental shooting at Augusta High School’s graduation ceremony. The Butler County (Kansas–ed.) Sheriff’s Office says the gun was accidentally discharged at the district’s outdoor stadium, Hillier Stadium, where commencement was being held.
A witness to the incident says a man’s concealed firearm sounded and he was injured with a wound to the foot. The man was reported to have driven himself to the Kansas Medical Center in Augusta.
The NRA’s “guns everywhere” fetish is working out so very nicely, is it not?
At least the moron had the good grace to shoot his own damn foot.
Settle disputes politely.
A woman fired a gun at a man during a dispute Saturday morning, sending him to the hospital, police said.
Police arrested the woman, identified as 46-year-old Dawn Iverson, of Martinez, on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon. According to police, Iverson shot the gun while trying to help her fiance and hit a man in the torso.
One more time, politeness is child’s play.
The girl, who was with two younger children, was playing with the weapon when it discharged about midnight, according to police. She was fatally wounded.
Her grandmother, who was cooking downstairs at the time of the shooting, was later questioned by police and released, said Detroit Police Officer Jennifer Moreno. The investigation into the tragedy continues and no charges have been filed.
The hunt for politeness is never-ending.
A 10-year-old has been shot in the foot in a duck shooting incident near New Plymouth, the third today, on the first day of the duck hunting season.
Earlier, a 55-year-old man was hit in the eye in the Tararua District, and a man in his 30s was shot in the wrist near Ashburton.
The cause of the incidents isn’t yet clear.
I beg to differ. The cause of the incidents is very clear. The details of each incident may not be clear, but the cause of all, regardless of the details, is negligence.
A polite society is a clean society.
A man accidentally shot himself in the foot on Sunday afternoon in Murfreesboro. A woman who was in the home at the time of the accidental shooting told police that she was in the kitchen when the 37 year old victim shot himself while cleaning his Mossberg shotgun.
I had a Mossberg five-shot bolt-action .22 rifle when I was younger. I once used it to pick a crow out of a tree at 150 yards.
I grew up on a farm. Crows were the enemy. Live with it.
Somehow, I managed not to shoot myself with it, because I’m not too stupid to own a gun.
It’s showtime for politeness!
The 63 year old man left his loaded gun in the car when he went inside the (gun–ed.) show because loaded weapons are forbidden.
Sgt. Dean Carriger of the Sandy Police Department told us, “Following the gun shot he returned to his car and he retrieved his weapon and was re-holstering it prior to leaving. At which time he accidentally discharged the weapon, which is a 40 caliber pistol, shooting himself in the right thigh.”
