Be polite to your classmates.

Authorities say a 7-year-old boy was accidentally shot in a first-grade classroom by another student in Louisiana. Nobody else was wounded.

Calcasieu (KAL-kuh-shoo) Parish Sheriff Tony Mancuso said the boy was shot a few minutes before 8 a.m. Monday. Police said in a news release that the boy was in surgery.

Be polite at home.

Falmouth police say a 23-year-old man was taken to Maine Medical Center on Tuesday afternoon for treatment of a gunshot wound that he suffered when his handgun fired unintentionally.

I do not wish to sound like a quibbling old pedant (even though I am all three), but, as a handgun does not have consciousness, everything it does, it does “unintentionally.”

Without consciousness, there is no “intent.”

Methinks the wording of these reports should more accurately cast responsibility.
