They look like fucking toys!!

A 5 year old boy has shot his baby sister dead, after his hick parents not only bought him a rifle, but also failed to unload it and secure it. This happened in Kentucky, by the way.

The little boy, named Kristian, was playing with the rifle while his redneck breeder Stephanie Sparks was cleaning the kitchen. While she was out on the porch, she heard the gun go off. She went inside and found her 2 year old daughter Caroline had been shot in the chest. The little girl was rushed to Cumberland hospital, but died from the wound.

The gun in question was a 0.22 calibre Crickett rifle, marketed by Keystone Sporting Arms as “My First Rifle”. KSA is all about safety and enjoyment of hunting and shooting. They also market little hi-vis vests, helmets and safety goggles. The rifle was being “stored” in the corner of the mobile home that the family lived in. The hick breeders hadn’t realised that there was a shell remaining inside the weapon.

Now I don’t know much about guns. Australia has severe gun laws and the whole American gun culture is just so alien to me. But I do know the basics. That gun was not secured properly, it was left in the fucking corner of their trailer! And the little boy was not properly taught about guns i.e. always assume any weapon is loaded, never point a gun at someone, and that dead is dead. But all of that inbreeding must have bred out commonsense. I don’t know why these hicks haven’t been selected against. One day, she’ll catch up with these sins against nature.

Not only are the breeders stupid rednecks, but the KY coroner must be the king of the hicks! He’s ruled the shooting as an accident and shrugged off the shooting as “just one of those crazy accidents”. Now you see here, you inbred banjo-twanging bumpkin. There are no “accidents” when it comes to guns. Someone has to pull the trigger or in this case, they left the gun accessible to the uneducated child. You’re just as bad as the hick breeders. A police trooper has said that it’s too early to say whether charges will be laid against the parents. Here, let me help you out. Failure to secure a firearm. Negligence resulting in death. Possibly possessing an unregistered firearm.

Rest in peace, little Caroline. Somehow, let your big bro know that your death wasn’t his fault. It was the fault of your inbred hick breeders who don’t know how to act around guns.

FATHER ASKS TO KEEP GUNS AFTER SHOT FIRED AT SCHOOL

 

A 42 year old man from Adelaide, South Australia, is in the poo after his 13 year old son took an unregistered revolver to school and fired it. The boy took the unregistered .32 calibre Smith and Wesson, along with some ammunition after he found the keys to the gun safe in his dad’s underwear drawer. He fired a single shot in an isolated part of the school.

The man’s lawyer asked the judge to not make him a scapegoat for other people’s actions, and blamed the boy for taking the gun to school. Honey, don’t come the raw prawn with the judge and jury. The boy obviously lacked knowledge and respect for firearms because his dad never taught him. Parents are supposed to guide their children away from danger and give them the tools to navigate this world. If your lifestyle includes firearms and other dangers, you have to incorporate that into how you raise your child.

The man has pleaded guilty to possession of an unregistered firearm without a licence and failing to store ammunition separately to weapons. He explained that the revolver was his grandmother’s and it had great sentimental value to him. He blamed financial difficulties for not registering the revolver, yet he’d registered his hunting guns. Well common sense would tell you to sell one of the hunting rifles or shotguns and use the money to register the revolver. Or have the revolver deactivated by filing off the firing pin. Ah, but the thing about common sense is, it’s not so common. The boy was put on a good behaviour bond and spared a conviction. It wasn’t his fault his dad’s an idiot.

Now for my two bob: I’m not against guns. My dad used to own shotguns and go hunting before I was born. I’ve been hunting before on a farm, where we shot rabbits because they were causing so much damage to the environment. I believe in using them for controlling feral pests and catching food. And defending your home. But if you choose to keep guns in your home and you choose to have kids, you must take certain precautions such as locking the guns away in a safe, keeping the ammo separate from the weapons and teaching your kids to respect guns, never point a gun at something you want to see again and that dead is dead. A little sense goes a long way.

A note on Australian gun laws: We have very strict gun laws. Automatic and semi-automatic weapons are banned in Australia after the Port Arthur massacre in 1996. Ammo is very expensive to buy here and this was the main reason my Dad gave up shooting. You need separate licences for handguns and hunting rifles/shotguns, hence why this failure of a fellow got into trouble for not having a licence even though he had a licence for the rifles.

 

Father Arrested after Son Kills Self with Unsecured Loaded Weapon

revolver.jpgA while back, a good woman named Jeanne Caroline lost her son because someone else’s idiot father left a loaded gun in plain reach. Henderson, Nevada father Geoffrey Wellls has lost his son to gun violence as well – except, in this case, Wells is as much part of the problem as he is victim. Prosecutors are moving to file neglect charges after Wells’ son, Syber Wells, shot himself with a loaded gun that his father had failed to secure.

Let’s not heap all of our scorn on Wells, however. Save some of it for Family Court Judge Cheryl Moss, who heard testimony from his own kids during custody hearings with his ex that he left loaded guns laying around the house. Judge Moss took Wells’ word that he kept the guns locked away, the protestations of his 8- and 10-year-old notwithstanding, and awarded him joint physical custody of his younglings. Nice work, Judge. Fortunately, someone with more grey matter than Moss has now put the kids in full physical custody of his wife while the investigation continues.
