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.
Yes, you’re going to need your gun for self protection—especially if somebody thinks you’re too drunk to drive:
SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) – A Texas woman is recovering after she was reportedly shot in the leg Saturday night.
Shreveport Police say the shooting happened in the 2600 block of Fulton Street just after 11:00 p.m.
Police say the victim, 34-year-old Melissa Moore, was found in a convenience store parking lot in the 3700 block of Hearne Avenue.
According to police, Moore was trying to get the suspect to give her the keys to the car. Police say she thought the suspect was too drunk to drive.
A handgun comes in handy when you are too drunk to protect yourself from meddling family members. You can be too drunk to drive, but you’re never too drunk to shoot. Keep ’em loaded, partner.
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.
It’s Friday again, and I know the NRA is always available. Their postings are funny, however, in a grim sort of way. Allow me to transcribe from the Facebook post that appeared on my feed as a “Suggested Post.”

A “suggested post” is paid advertising, from which I gather the NRA paid to have this pop up on my feed. Jolly for them.
What catches my attention is “Help ensure no law abiding American is forced to face evil with empty hands.” Yeah, Dude. Without the NRA you may not always be allowed to keep your trusty firearm close by, and when “evil” finally does come to your door, you are going to regret ever having voted for Obama or Clinton or some other left-leaning enemy of the Bill of Rights.
And that I find to be very funny.
It’s a dangerous world out the. Criminals and enemies of this country find defenseless Americans to be easy prey. The NRA assures us the Second Amendment is our guarantee of our right to keep ourselves safe. Even while shopping at Walmart:
The victim was named as Veronica J Rutledge, 29, of Blackfoot, Idaho; she is understood to have been visiting relatives in the area.
Ms Rutledge was a nuclear scientist at the Idaho National Laboratory, which supports the US Department of Energy.
She was shopping with three nieces when her only son shot her with a small-calibre handgun. Her husband was not with her, but arrived shortly afterwards.
Lt Miller said the victim had a permit to carry a concealed weapon.
It’s important for citizens to remain vigilant. Keep your handgun with you at all times, and never turn your back on a suspicious adversary.
