“To regard Gilt’s shooting as a black comedy of just deserts would be a mistake,” The Trace opines. Subtle, eh? [Image above from a different source.] To earn Google’s approval as a listed news provider (a financially valuable honor denied TTAG), the Bloomberg-financed Trace is supposed to be neutral on guns. In fact, When Kids Shoot Their Parents: An American Tradition is just another bloody shirt-waving exercise designed to promote gun control. Like this . . .
A day after the shooting, Jamie Gilt was reportedly in stable condition. Her country is not so lucky.
As we predicted, gun control advocates are using Jamie Gilt’s guilt to further the cause of civilian disarmament. As all gun control advocates are wont to do with all firearms-related deaths involving children.
Not seeing it? How about the sub-head: Shots fired at mothers and fathers by sons and daughters are as much a part of the history of gun ownership as Davy Crockett or the Minutemen.
While TTAG laments negligent discharges — and doesn’t hesitate to write about them as a warning to others — it’s important to note the fact that these tragedies are both rare and entirely preventable (by observing The Four Rules of Gun Safety). Well it is for us, anyway.
