Gun Control Means Locking The Damn Thing Up After You Use Both Hands

Nice:

A man was shot and killed late Thursday night as he forced his way into a house on Old Mooringsport Road in northern Caddo Parish, sheriff’s deputies said.

The next day, I saw one of my former students limping through school with a brace covering his knee and most of his leg. His nonchalant response when I asked what happened? “Oh, I got shot.” How? According to him, he was a spectator at a card game when an exuberant shark somehow knocked a .38 off the table, causing it to hit the floor, discharge, and ruin all the ligament’s in my thirteen year old student’s knee. Now I’m wondering why anyone would attend the type of card game that they felt required a .38, and why, even if they did, they would let a middle school kid hang around that game. In light of the lack of intelligence shown on those two issues, it’s no wonder the idiot owner had no control over his gun.

    That must be a pretty old .38. Most, if not all, modern pistols have internal safetys which prevent the gun from discharging if it is dropped, or if the hammer is struck without the trigger being pulled.

    given the crowd in which the gun was present, not surprising. i’m sure it probably has a colorful history, too.
