Inculcate politeness from a tender age.

Metro Nashville Police responded to the shooting on Blue Hills Drive at 9:30 a.m. They say a 2-year-old who doesn’t live at the residence grabbed a gun from a door pocket of a vehicle that had just driven to the location and fired the gun, hitting a 12-year-old in the hip.

The story goes on to point out that Tennessee has a shot at shot records this year. Follow the link for the numbers.

Get a load of politeness (emphasis added).

A man sustained a gunshot wound that wasn’t considered life-threatening Saturday evening when his gun accidentally discharged as he was unloading it, authorities said. . . . .

The accidental shooting was said to have taken place in the parking lot of Hollywood Theaters, 6200 S.W. 6th Ave.

Why was this ammosexual stroking his piece in a movie theatre parking lot? Had he just watched Tammy Does Topeka or what?

Also, “was said“? Really now, where did it actually take place? Inquiring minds want to know.

Eugene Robinson notes the disparity.

If you are a black man in America, exercising your constitutional right to keep and bear arms can be fatal. You might think the National Rifle Association and its amen chorus would be outraged, but apparently they believe Second Amendment rights are for whites only.

*That’s the second line of a children’s song from the slave South as quoted in a little book compiled by one of my great uncles (citation available upon request). The book had only a local printing and is now long out of print, but I still have my copy.

By the by, the first line of that charming little ditty is “Run, N****r, run.”

Politeness! You can’t handle the politeness!

Share your politeness.

A woman, 24, reported she was in her bedroom showing a gun she keeps under her pillow to a friend, 26, around midnight at a home on the 500 block of Mulberry Road.

She told police she took the magazine out of the 9mm Canik pistol, put the magazine back in, and as she held the gun in her hand, a bullet fired, Bellingham police Lt. Mike Johnston said.

The round struck the man’s right leg above the ankle.

I have figured out how all these guns fire on their own. As their ammosexual owners caress them, the weapons eventually reach a peak of excitement that makes inevitable a premature–er–discharge.

Afterthought:

Gun nuts refer to this phenomenon as “cleaning my gun.”

The gunnularity draws closer, as yet another gun mysteriously fires itself . . . .

“I was advised a Ruger LC9s semi automatic 9 mm pistol was lying in the console area of the vehicle as (the man, the child and the grandfather) were sitting in the vehicle,” Hatton said in a report. “At some point, the pistol discharged and passed through the console, striking (the child) in both legs and striking (the father) in the left leg approximately three inches above the knee. The bullet lodged in (the father’s leg).”

(Yeah. Right.)

Politeness means that families do things together. For example, they go on spontaneous family outings.

Logan Police Chief Tyson Budge said a 5-year-old boy apparently got hold of a loaded hunting rifle about 8 p.m. Monday. The firearm discharged, the bullet striking the boy’s 13-month-old brother in the foot.

Police said a 911 call reporting a shooting came from residents below the second floor unit of a multi-family apartment building near 500 East and 500 North. The callers told police that soon after the gunshot, two adults ran from the unit above them with a child in their arms.

Cleanliness is next to politeness.

The unidentified 30-year-old father told deputies that he was cleaning his gun about 6:40 p.m. on the family’s porch when it misfired after he sat on it, according to the incident report and Lott.

The bullet that struck the toddlers in the upper body also grazed the father’s hand, according to the report and a news release. The 4-year-old required surgery, but her injuries are not life threatening, Watts said.

One of the children died.

Afterthought:

When I had a rifle, I also had a cleaning kit and cleaned it regularly. As best as I can remember, sitting on the gun was not part of the procedure.

Unloading it first was.

Post-Afterthought:

You do realize all these bozos who claim that they are “cleaning” their guns as they kill innocent bystanders are doing no such thing.

They are fondling them, and cleanliness is the farthest thing from their tiny ammosexual minds.
