Why Gun Control IS a MUST

Other than the F-A-C-T, that guns have a tendency, to go OFF on their own, from NBCNEWS.com, by L. Carroll…

School shootings unnerve Americans, but the number of children injured or killed in those tragic events is just a fraction of the young people harmed by firearms each year in the U.S., a new study shows.

Injuries from firearms send over 7,000 kids to the hospital annually, an average of twenty per day.  Among those admitted, sixty percent die in the hospital…

And this one, is still, for ALL of y’all, GUN fanatics, IF you want to, or already OWNED a gun, DO make sure, that you keep it, locked away (preferably in a COMBINATION safe!!!), and out of reach of children, because if they died of a GUNSHOT wound to the HEAD, then, blood will BE on your hands, parents!!!

Another School Shooting

From as early as Columbine H.S. back in 1999 (and yeah, I looked THAT up too!!!), to the recent year’s Sandy Hook Elementary, along with that ten-year-old who’s SHOT by her little nine-year-old third grade classmate, because his mama couldn’t keep her GUNS locked up safe and sound, now, there are still MORE on the way…

Another school shooting, so, your point is?  THROW out the Second Amendment (are you SURE you want to do that, b/c you’ll surely ANGER a TON of gun lovers, your members of NRA’s and what not), or, should we have a STRICTER background check on gun ownership?  But, sometimes, those who owned the guns aren’t the one shooting someone, it’s how easily those GUNS are accessible.

And so, what, did we learn, from yet, ANOTHER school shooting?  Absolutely NOTHING, because it hasn’t happened in OUR neighborhoods yet, and even IF it’d happened in OUR neighborhoods, it still wasn’t anybody we know, we loved, or cared about (like your relatives???) who’d gotten SHOT dead, so, we don’t care.  And the world is still, slowly, DROPPING below FREEZING temperature, and, you DO know, how placing that BAN on the Second Amendment Rights is still NOT the answer, right???

Accidentally Shot, and You Still Stand Firm Behind Those Second Amendment Rights?

Those of you who are SUPPORTERS of the Second Amendment ALONG with members of the NRA or whatever OTHER gun fanatic groups, listen UP, from NBCNEWS.com…

The New Jersey father of a 4-year-old boy who accidentally shot and killed his 6-year-old neighbor has been arrested, accused of having multiple unsecured weapons accessible to children, the Atlantic County prosecutor’s office announced Monday.

Anthony Senatore, 33, has been charged with six counts of child endangerment and a disorderly person’s offense for enabling access by minors to a loaded firearm.

Senatore’s son and 6-year-old Brandon Holt were playing in their neighborhood April 8 when The New Jersey father of a 4-year-old boy who accidentally shot and killed his 6-year-old neighbor has been arrested, accused of having multiple unsecured weapons accessible to children, the Atlantic County prosecutor’s office announced Monday.

Senatore’s son and 6-year-old Brandon Holt were playing in their neighborhood April 8 when the 4-year-old got a loaded .22-caliber rifle from his family’s home and shot Brandon in the head, authorities said. The boys were about 15 yards apart.

Brandon died at a hospital a day later.

Brandon’s grandmother told NBC 4 New York at the time she was angry the family failed to take enough caution in locking up their guns.

“I can’t believe that they found 11 guns in that house,” said Donna Elefante. “I mean, with three kids? Give me a break.”

Attorney information for Senatore was not immediately available, and a phone number was not listed in the public pages.

The Atlantic County prosecutor’s office took over investigation of the case early on because the Senatores have relatives who worked in law enforcement in Ocean County, where Toms River is located.

One resident said the two families had not lived in the neighborhood for long and she did not know them well.

“I’m sad for the children involved and their families, but I’m angry with whoever owns that gun and allowed a little child to get hold of it,” Debi Coto, who lives a few doors down, said after the shooting.

The shooting came just days after a 4-year-old boy in Tennessee grabbed a loaded gun at a family cookout and accidentally shot to death the wife of a sheriff’s deputy and amid debate over gun control laws in the wake of December’s Newtown, Conn., elementary school massacre, in which 20 first-graders

Moral of the story???  If you’re a GUN FANATIC, or a SECOND-AMENDMENT RIGHT fanatic, DO keep your GUNS out of child’s reach, because you KNOW how they got the tendency to GET not just their ONE of TWO hands STUCK inside that “cookie jar”, they may SHOVE their child-sized HEADS in there too!!!  And, you should NEVER keep weapons in the reach of children, OR alcohol either, because you KNOW those kids?  They WILL be kids, touch, and, BAM, something accidentally goes O-F-F, and, you, the parents would be made to take the RESPONSIBILITIES for them…
