“Gangsta” Toddlers Have Shot 23 People So Far This Year!

How common is it that 3 year olds get hold of guns in the house or car?

Waaaaay more common that you would believe.

Toddlers have shot at least 23 people this year

This past week, a Milwaukee toddler fatally shot his mother after finding a handgun in the back seat of the car they were riding in. The case drew a lot of national attention given the unusual circumstances: Little kids rarely kill people, intentionally or not.

But this type of thing happens more often than you might think. Since April 20, there have been at least seven instances in which a 1- , 2- or 3-year-old shot themselves or somebody else in the United States:

Last year, a Washington Post analysis found that toddlers were finding guns and shooting people at a rate of about one a week. This year, that pace has accelerated. There have been at least 23 toddler-involved shootings since Jan. 1, compared with 18 over the same period last year.

In the vast majority of cases, the children accidentally shoot themselves. That’s happened 18 times this year, and in nine of those cases the children died of their wounds.

Toddlers have shot other people five times this year. Two of those cases were fatal: this week’s incident in Milwaukee, and that of a 3-year-old Alabama boy who fatally shot his 9-year-old brother in February….Read the Rest Here

The Sno’ Ho’s Fake Hunting Trip

What’s with these Republican politicians? First we have Dick Cheney shooting his hunting companion – taking a shot no real hunter would have ever even considered even drawing a bead on…

Now the Sno’ Ho’ killing a Caribou for political points. Actually after missing 4-5 shots – it’s more than likely somebody else shot the Caribou, and they edited it in. Even more suspicious is the fact that the Caribou didn’t spook and run away after having a gun go off next to it. I mean…If the game stands there, and lets you shoot at it all day like a paper target…

That’s target practice… Not hunting.

Seems the hunting crowd is miffed at the fact that the Sno’ Ho’ broke a few cardinal safety rules, and demonstrated an utter unfamiliarity with the skills, which she supposedly has been dong since she was a little kid.

What’s wrong with this picture?

1. A “Varmit Rifle” isn’t something you’d normally take to hunt game the size of a Caribou.

2. Either the rifle isn’t “sighted in”, or the Sno’ Ho’ can’t shoot for beans. And yes, shooting uphill does cause the shooter to shoot high, although having the target silhouetted against the sky is the easiest target there is. Any real hunter makes sure their equipment is in good functioning order before the hunt – and that includes sighting in the rifle. Read the rest of this entry »
