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.
