The anti-Gun Story that Wasn't

01/24/06 - Germantown, Maryland

Headline: Girl shot at daycare; Father of 8-year-old boy charged
  • Junior finds Daddy's handgun in a hatbox in the closet, takes it to day care in his backpack and accidentally shoots a little girl.
  • Daddy has a rap sheet a mile long.
  • In the liberal paradise of Maryland, of all places!
And what's the reaction from the gun grabbers?


The little girl was taken to Children's National Medical Center in Washington, D.C., with a serious but non-life threatening injury.
"This is a harsh reminder that we can never be too careful when it comes to the safety of our children," the girl'’s father said in his statement. "‘Everyone has a responsibility to ensure that guns are kept unloaded, locked and out of children'’s reach to prevent incidents like this. This happens too often to innocent children. Parents need to realize how dangerous it is to keep guns in a place where their children can get to them. I don'’t want any parent to have to get a call like I got this morning."
Well, well, well - someone finally laying the blame on irresponsible parents rather than on eeeeeevil guns! Maybe there's hope for this state yet.
