Re: Pro-gun article

What if stricter gun control loses(not saves) even one more life?

New York City sees surge in gun violence

edit:

Actually a bit of a misleading title, as total shootings this year are lower to this point then last year at this time. But they had dropped last year before gun control was enacted as well(http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/...icle-1.1229273), so I don't think numbers alone mean anything in terms of effectiveness.

Re: Pro-gun article

This is just peachy:

Police selling guns from buyback program

ST. CHARLES, Ill., May 31 (UPI) -- A police department in the Chicago suburbs said some of the guns obtained from a buyback program will be sold to a pair of licensed dealers.

St. Charles Police Chief James Lamkin said about 20 firearms obtained through a gun buyback program and seized by courts will be sold to the dealers, the Chicago Tribune reported Friday.

"There's value in these guns," Lamkin said. "They're not illegal guns. Quite honestly, it's a bottom line for us."

Re: Pro-gun article

Did somebody say there was a positive?
Is this a trick question?

Not quite sure why it would be loaded, but from the story, it is being treated as an unfortunate accident, no charges filed.

That said, I can't begin to imagine what the child is going to deal with for a long time.

from the story:
Quote:
Justin Stanfield Thomas, 35, and his son made an unannounced trip Friday to the home of an unidentified former roommate, police said. Thomas had previously lived in the residence, according to investigators.

"This appears to be an accident. There was no conflict in the stories of those in the house," said Prescott Valley Police Sgt. Brandon Bonney. "The resident didn't know his former roommate was stopping by to visit."

Moments after arriving at the home, the boy picked up the small-caliber handgun and asked his father and other adults in the room what it was he was holding, said Bonney.


Seconds later he pulled the trigger
?? this was a few seconds, you (and I) have no idea how it happened, the police have said there was no negligence, and it was a tragic accident. Per the story, it doesn't sound like they were all sitting around smoking and joking leaving a gun out and about. They came in, the 4yo saw it, and before they could stop it his dad was dead. It's just not something you can make a general statement out of.

Given that the father who died was a former roommate, if he knew the guy generally had his guns out and available, then this would be a case where I blame the victim. He could have called and let the gun owner know they were going to show up, and could he make sure his gun(s) were child safe.

Re: Pro-gun article

Keeps your guns locked up folks. Rule no one with owning a gun, being responsible enough to keep it secure.
