If you don’t have a gun available when danger threatens your children, how are you going to keep them safe? You can never be too vigilant:
n Ohio police department chided gun owners about firearms safety after one local boy shot another while playing unsupervised.
An 8-year-old boy and 6-year-old boy were playing in a basement Thursday at a Columbus home when they found a loaded handgun, police said.
The boys were handling the weapon when it accidentally fired, shooting the older boy in the arm.
He was treated at a nearby hospital for the gunshot wound, but additional details about his condition were not released.
“PLEASE LOCK UP GUNS,” Columbus police said on their verified Twitter account. “We’re posting this incident to raise awareness & educate the public.”
Of course, if you keep your weapon safely locked up, then how are you going to get to it when foreign terrorists come over the back fence to murder your family? The cops didn’t think about that.
