“Dallas police said two children — ages 5 and 13 — found a handgun inside a home in the 1800 block of Maryland Avenue and started playing with it in the garage,” khou.com reports. “The gun discharged and a bullet struck the five-year-old, who was listed in serious condition Saturday evening at Children’s Medical Center.” What kind of gun discharges and shoots a five-year-old boy? An evil gun, obviously. Because there’s no way the media can blame gun owners for the potential death of their own child . . .
Or, say, a 13-year-old boy. That would be callous! Even if blaming the gun empowers gun control advocates we must think of the children! “We try to avoid these things and hope that parents are educated so they have their guns locked up in a safe place where their kids can’t have access to these kinds of weapons,” said Dallas police spokesman Sgt. Reginald Matthew. Police are still investigating, but so far there are no arrests.” Interesting.
Shouldn’t the 13-year-old face some kind of legal penalty for his negligence?
