Guns make us safer, of this we can be sure. Recent news from Columbus, Ohio, is reassuring:
COLUMBUS, Ohio — A 15-year-old boy is recovering after being shot in the face by his stepbrother Saturday afternoon.
It happened at the Speedway gas station at 6421 East Broad Street just before 3:15 p.m.
Columbus Police caught up with the victim at Mount Carmel East. He told police his 14-year-old stepbrother was handling a handgun inside the rear of a parked car at Speedway when it accidentally discharged, striking the teen in the face.
The shooter has been charged with improperly handling a firearm in a motor vehicle—obviously a small price to pay for keeping us all safe.
