Yet more neighborly politeness . . . .
Responding officers went to the apartment where Roque Stella-Colon, 18, said he fired one gunshot inside his home by accident, according to police.
An 11-year-old in the neighboring apartment suffered a cut to the chin from flying debris, police said.
One wonders whether this alert teacher thwarted a(nother) school shooting.
The hunt for politeness continues apace.
When darkness set in around 8 p.m., the group still had their weapons out, police said. Koach said the stepfather fired a shot that struck the 11-year-old boy.
“At this point, shots were fired,” Koach said. “They thought they were shooting at a deer and one of the rounds hit the young man.”
One more time, “responsible gun owner” is an oxymoron.
At the Hartford Courant, John C. Hall describes what he felt when packing heat, which may be best described as “the cycle of politeness.” Here’s a bit:
Then I wondered: How many other people have guns? Probably a lot. With guns in my world, and especially when I was holding a loaded gun in my hands, my imagination quickly inhabited a world that was scarier, more criminal and more violent. So while holding a gun is rather thrilling at first, over time, guns did not make me feel safer.
When you fly the fiendly skies, remember to pack your politeness.
Politeness is a family value.
A 29-year-old man named Luis Martin Pages shot his 59-year-old mother, Miriam Gonzalez, to death at 5:22 p.m. on Sunday evening in their shared North Miami home after the two argued.
More family values at the link.
The hunt for politeness continues.
Howard and the woman were dropped off near a wood at an open field — about 150 yards from each other — when a short time later a buck ran across the field between the two, DNR said.
The woman shot at the deer twice, but one of those shots struck Howard in the chest.
You’ve heard of “packing heat”? Now there’s unpacking heat.
Guns and stupid, guns and stupid.
They go together like love and Cupid.
Let me tell you brother,
You can’t have one without the other.
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).
I have two daughters.
Disgust wells up within me.
There are not enough books to throw at this clown.
Be polite to your siblings.
The man thought the gun was unloaded and said he doesn’t recall what happened.
“He’s not sure how or why the gun went off,” Burke said.
Let me enlighten him.
The gun went off because he pulled the trigger while pointing the gun at another person.
This stuff isn’t rocket science, for Pete’s sake.
If the two-year old had been packing, perhaps he could have defended himself from the three-year old.
