Accidental Shooting of Chicago Teen by his Dad - Dad Arrested

Local news reports

A 53-year-old man was charged this morning in connection with the accidental shooting of his son Saturday afternoon in their Rogers Park home.

Charles Johnson of the 1300 block of West Estes Avenue was charged with one count of unlawful use of a weapon by a felon, possession of a firearm, police said.

Johnson had hidden his gun in the garage but noticed that the weapon had disappeared about six months ago, according to a police report. When Johnson saw his .38 caliber gun on his son's desk, he confronted him and the two began to argue, according to police.

When the boy picked up the gun, Johnson tried to wrestle the gun away from him and during the struggle, the gun discharged, striking the 17-year-old, according to the report.

Police found the boy in a bedroom lying on a couch with a gunshot wound to his right cheek. They found the gun lying on the floor.
He wasn't arrested for the act of shooting his son. That's what wrong.

  1. Make my day, you little cocksucking chickenshit coward. I read your goddamned idiotic screed on DU and it makes me sick. PLEASE come to my house and try to take my guns away, I'll send you to that big dumfuk house in the sky in about 3 microseconds, asshole.

    1. Karl, have you seen anything I've written about wanting to take your guns away? Of course, you sound like one who might not qualify to own guns, if your little insults are any indication.

  2. I just love it when gunloons like "karlschneider" make threats of violence. It really shows what the pro-gun movement is really all about.

    1. How about when control freaks do the same? Laci and Democommie have both expressed their desire to see me get shot, and Laci has also said that he'd enjoy getting within one centimeter of my nose to do unspecified things.
