From the miamiherald.com: “Tampa Teen Shot by Gun She Found in Bedroom” That’s a lot to process. A poor, unsuspecting teen found a gun in her bedroom. God only knows how it got there. Most likely, it crawled in when she wasn’t looking. For some reason, the gun was upset with the girl and decided to shoot her. Wait. No, maybe she found the gun somewhere else, and brought in into her room. There, she argued with it and, in its insensate rage, the gun decided to plug her. Everyone knows the little bastards can be awfully moody. Hold on, that’s not not what happened either. Actually, there seems to have been someone else involved. . .
Deputies say a 15-year-old girl is in critical condition after a handgun she found in her home went off while her mother’s boyfriend tried to take it away from her.
Ahh. From the title of the piece, a reader could be forgiven for thinking that the evil gun went on a rampage on its own, shooting the poor girl in her own bedroom. But it turns out someone else was involved. Which almost never happens really. As almost everyone knows, the guns usually just go off on their own. They’re awfully unpredictable that way. It’s good that this one was apprehended before it could do even more damage.
