The real tragedy in cases like this in gun friendly states is the stupid gun owner gets a slap on the wrist. Without missing a beat, he's back in business. I dismiss the pro-gun argument that these guys learn from their mistakes and are the most careful afterwards. I'm sure that happens in some cases, but by and large, if you're stupid enough to do this once, the chances are you'll do it again, or something worse.Police in Centerville say a woman and a 2-year-old boy were accidentally shot and wounded by the boy's father, who was giving a gun demonstration at home.
Police Lt. Paul Child says the man was sitting with his mother-in-law and son Monday evening and demonstrating how to handle a pistol when he pulled the trigger.
Child says the 32-year-old man thought the gun was unloaded at the time.
Police say a bullet struck the 54-year-old woman's calf, then hit the boy in the foot.
One strike you're out is the only answer for guys like this. How the hell else are we going to clean up the mess we have now, not only with criminals acting up, but with law abiding gun owners doing it as well. One strike you're out.
