More guns, fewer children

While gunnuts like to tell us that more guns mean less crime (there is not one scintilla of evidence that this claim is true), the fact is MORE GUNS, FEWER CHILDREN.

---------------------------------------

An Ohio boy accidentally killed his brother after finding a loaded gun lying on a table during a target shooting outing.

The Carroll County sheriff said an 11-year-old boy picked up the gun from a picnic table about 5 p.m. Friday and accidentally fired the loaded weapon, reported the Canton Repository.

The shot struck 12-year-old Joseph Baily in the head, killing the boy.

An 11-year-old Tennessee boy has been charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of an 8-year-old neighbor girl.

The Jefferson County sheriff said the boy, whose name has not been released, used his father’s 12-gauge single-shot shotgun to kill his next-door neighbor, McKayla Dyer.

The girl had been outside playing about 7:30 p.m. Saturday when the older boy asked to see her puppy, but she told him no, said Latasha Dyer, the girl’s mother.

She said the boy, who had bullied her daughter since moving to the mobile home park in White Pine, went home to get the shotgun and then shot her daughter in the chest.

“He was making fun of her, calling her names — just being mean to her,” Dyer said. “I had to go the principal about him, and he quit for a while, and then all of a sudden yesterday he shot her.”

The girl was pronounced dead at an area hospital.
