The mother was on the front porch, Bob S. was writing his blog and all the rest of the pro-gun crowd were insisting that guns are necessary and good, that kids can be taught safe gun handling and in the meantime this kid ends up DEAD.
Brazos County authorities say an apparent accidental shooting has left a 10-year-old boy dead after a .22-caliber rifle held by a 12-year-old neighbor discharged.
Brazos County Sheriff Chris Kirk says the older boy was handling the rifle when it accidentally fired, striking Rumfield in the chest.
Kirk says the older boy's mother was on the front porch or near the house at the time of the shooting.
Shame on you all. Keep talking your percentages and your statistics, keep lying about the chances of your needing a gun to save your life vs. the chances of something bad happening with it. Keep it up.
I blame you, you stubborn, selfish pro-gun advocates. I blame you for disseminating the lies about gun safety and for resisting by every means the common sense gun laws which would prevent many needless deaths. I blame you for propagating the gun culture myth which so permeates our society, the myth that says it's cool and good and necessary for self defense to have a gun and that it's a god-given, Constitutionally protected right while the real reason for gun ownership is usually fear and insecurity, paranoia and mental illness.
