Not a Happy New Year for This 5 Year Old Kid

Another Kid dies from gun violence, but heck, that is ok with pro-gunners, because hey, kids are expendable, so long as they have heir fetish firearms.  There is no number of deaths from firearms in the wrong hands that will move them to put a stop to events like this.

A young boy has died after a shooting in Oakland Friday night, police said. Police said the boy, who is about five years old, was shot in the stomach while he and his family were at a taco stand near 54th Avenue and International Boulevard.
Officers responded to the shooting at around 8:40 p.m.
The boy was taken in critical condition to a hospital where he was later pronounced dead late Friday night, according to police.

  1. The child's death is not "o.k.," but nothing in the story indicates whether the shooter owned the gun legally or otherwise, how the gun was obtained, whether the shot was intentional or accidental, or, most importantly, how any gun control measure would have prevented it, short of a total ban on private ownership and a confiscation of any privately held firearms, two things that you claim to be against.
