In a statement released by the NRA, the child’s death is totally worth protecting the 2nd Amendment to make sure an unlimited and unrestricted supply of guns are freely available to anyone who wants them. Nor is there a limit to the number of dead children, or anyone else for that matter, to make them change their minds.*
A six-year-old girl died after being accidentally shot in the head by her four-year-old brother, US police have said.
Millie Drew Kelly was fatally injured while sitting in her family’s car outside their home in Paulding County, Georgia.
Their mother was preparing to set off but had got out of the vehicle when it failed to start. She then heard a shot from inside the car.
“Detectives determined that the four-year-old male sibling retrieved a handgun from the console of the vehicle and accidently discharged it, striking his six-year-old sister in the head,” the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.
*Not actually released, but their silence, or deflection of blame in these cases, is tacit agreement.
In a statement released by me, I am still sick of this shit.
Also, the mother who left the gun with a bullet in the chamber for the child to find and kill his sister will not be charged, according to the news report. Obviously responsible gun ownership is not a priority for the legal system if one may leave loaded weapons unattended around children without repercussions.
I wonder what Child Protective Services would say if a negligent mother allowed children easy access to poison, or knives, or another sort of deadly item or substance which killed another child?
Or are guns an exception because everyone is too frightened of loudmouth gun nuts who may use their guns to protect their right to use guns? Actually, the problem is with the 2nd Amendment - repeal is the only solution. Until then, the human sacrifice to the gun god continues.
In other news, the NRA made a public statement that the people killed in the following mass murder were to blame for being unarmed.*
A Phoenix man is charged with four murders and multiple assaults after allegedly killing his wife, two of their children and a friend over apparent suspicions that his wife was having an affair with his brother—who was not among the victims, officials said this week.
While in custody, suspect Austin Smith told police that “in God’s eyes it was alright for him to deal with someone in this manner who been involved in adultery or an extramarital affair,” Phoenix Police Sgt. Tommy Thompson at a press conference on Friday. “Under his religious beliefs he believes that it was okay.”
*Not really stated, but tacitly stated. The NRA also would like to give a public shout-out to the manufacturers of the murder weapons for the fine products which performed exceeding well for their intended purpose.
