Methinks that, in the following excerpt, “handling” is a polite way of saying “fondling lascivously.”
I’ll stop there.
Police said their investigation revealed that a 38-year-old man was handling a gun in a bedroom while she (a ten-year old girl–ed.) was in an adjoining bathroom. While he was holding the gun, it went off, striking the girl. The girl’s 35-year-old mother was also in the bedroom with the 38-year-old, but she was not injured.
And, reputably, yet another gun that went off on its ownsome (something, by the way, that guns don’t do).

Same goes for the millions in our great party with significant health problems who can’t risk going to the polls in the midst of a viral pandemic, and who are starting to believe what President Trump has been saying about fraudulent mail-in balloting. He’s not talking about your state, okay? He’s talking about all the other states.
