Politeness is essential to domestic tranquility.

A half-dozen police cars and emergency vehicles lined the 2000 block of Carroll Avenue. About 45 minutes earlier, a 10-year-old boy shot an 11-year-old boy, the woman’s son, with a handgun they found inside the house, police spokesman Scott Leamon said.

The two boys had been playing with the gun. The 10-year-old called 911 at 12:18 p.m. to report the shooting, Leamon said.

Just another day in NRA paradise.

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.

Shower your children with politeness.

“The father said he was taking a shower when he heard a gunshot,” Lt. Greg Baker told NBC affiliate WDSU. “He got out of the shower, and that’s when he discovered that his daughter had accidentally shot (and killed–ed.) herself.”

The father reportedly told authorities that he left his .45-caliber gun on the table.

Drive politely.

While driving on U.S. 169 near 11th Street, the man was apparently trying to rearrange his handgun when the shot went off, hitting him in the leg.

He then flagged down an officer on the side of the highway and tried to claim that someone else shot him, Capt. Walter Busby said. An investigation revealed it was an accidental self-inflicted shot, according to police on the scene.

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?

Afterthought:

At least the moron had the good grace to shoot his own damn foot.

Treat children politely.

After a 4-year-old was shot and killed in a Philadelphia home, the boyfriend of the girl’s mother turned himself in, saying it was an accident.

At first, police thought the girl’s 5-year-old sibling had shot her with the man’s semi-automatic handgun until the mother’s boyfriend confessed Saturday night.

One more time, politeness is child’s play.

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.

Play politely.

A probable cause report released Friday says a witness saw the 17-year-old “playing” with a gun and pointing it at the girl. The witness heard the girl “playfully” say she was not afraid of the boy shortly before the first shot was fired.

Deputies found the girl with a single gunshot wound. Medics declared her dead at the scene.

Had the girl been packing, no doubt this would not have happened.

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.”
