Courtesy is essential in relationships.

Crime scene tape still surrounds the home of Laura and Chris Rains as deputies try to piece together what happened in the moments leading up to Laura’s death.

Deputies say Laura, 26, was shot in the head by her 25-year-old husband around 6 p.m. Monday.

Chris Rains told investigators his wife was handing him a pistol when it went off.

All snark aside, this sort of stuff is sad and far too common. (Don’t believe me? Set up a Google alert for “accidental shooting” and permutations thereof.)

I am baffled that folks who demand their right to bear arms don’t take the time to learn how to bear arms.

These things are not toys, folks. Unless you are plinking Coke cans on tree stumps (after making sure that no one is behind said tree stumps), they are instruments of death. It may be death to a varmint, death to a rabbit, death to a duck, but it’s still death.

If you do not give them respect, they will demand it with a life.

Real life is not a John Wayne movie, and real guns are not substitutes for diminutive phalli.
