In an increasingly threatening world, there are those who would restrict our right to protect ourselves and our families. Nobody is more diligent in protecting our gun rights than the National Rifle Association. We salute their work and also those who have given their very lives to protect our right to keep and bear arms:
A 6-year-old boy died Saturday afternoon after apparently playing with a handgun and shooting himself, Washington County Sheriff Matt Thomas said.
The boy’s mother and her boyfriend were outside a friend’s home working on a car at the time of the incident, about 4:26 p.m.
“The little boy went into the house and went into the homeowner’s bedroom, found the gun and started playing with it. Somehow, he pulled the trigger and fired,” Thomas said.
The boy died at the scene, Thomas said, declining to release the boy’s name.
As you remain ever vigilant against government encroachment on your personal liberties, keep this young warrior always in your hearts and minds.
