Florida 14-Year-old Accidentally Shoots Herself at Gun Range

A 14-year-old girl accidentally shot herself Thursday at a gun range in Brevard County, the Sheriff's Office said.
The girl, whose name was not released, was with her father when the accident happened about 3:30 p.m. at The Gun Site indoor range, 125 S. Banana River Drive in Merritt Island, a sheriff's spokeswoman said.
The injury to the girl's thigh was not life-threatening, deputies said.
This is no different than any other kid shooting. A responsible adult should be held accountable. The idiot dad should be in jail overnight and should forfeit all his guns immediately upon his release.
But, as we all know, the investigators, the police, the gun-range owners and everyone else involved have a stake in nonchalantly treating these incidents as unavoidable accidents instead of the gross negligence that they are.


  1. Or this could simply be an accident, and you shouldn't be so vindictive in your efforts to disarm the public.

    1. You mean like one of those mechanical failures that you're always talking about?

    2. No, the teenager likely put her finger on the trigger before she had the sights lined up with the target. But I don't believe in punishing people for their every error.

    3. "the teenager likely put her finger on the trigger before she had the sights lined up"
      You have no way of knowing that, but thanks for lying again.

    4. How about punishing people for violating the 4 Basic Rules of Gun Safety? Are you opposed to that too? Do you think people who do this have never heard of the safety rules before? Or have most of them heard the safety rules all their lives, hundreds of times, yet they break them? Why would you not want to hold people accountable for that?

    5. There is a rule that says "look both ways before you cross the street". How would you punish someone who was staring at their phone when they walked out into the street and got hit by a car?

    6. Anonymous, do you know the meaning of the word, likely? I made an assessment of probabilities, not a claim of fact. I don't mind when people disagree with me, but when they're stupid about it, it's annoying.

      Mikeb, I don't wish to proliferate laws. That's what your side loves.

    7. You were making up shit, lying.
      So I called you on it.
      Next lie.

    8. TS, are you comparing gun negligence with the way some people cross the street?

  2. Trying to save lives, is vindictive?
    WOW is all there is to say to such garbage
