Not a word about the shooter other than it was "someone" with a shotgun. No mention of charges or even of an investigation.A 9-year-old girl was shot accidentally by a shotgun Saturday night in New Sewickley Township in Beaver County, authorities said.A county police dispatcher said the department received a call at 8:02 p.m. that someone trying to shoot a skunk had accidentally hit a girl in the shoulder. The incident happened in the 300 block of Brewer Road. Police would not identify the victim or the shooter.The dispatcher said the youngster was taken to Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC, Lawrenceville. A condition report was not available.
People who shoot other people mistaking them for animals should go to jail and lose their gun rights, period.
Why is that so difficult? Why is there so much discussion about whether it was an accident or negligence, as if that makes a difference? We need to take gun responsibility more seriously. There are too many "accidents."
