It's another day, so you can count on another responsible gun owner getting out the gun he or she stores responsibly, doing something with it, and accidentally shooting one of the kids or a spouse.
Here's today's installment from Texas:
The Dallas Morning News reported that 53-year-old Steven Johnson had taken out his gun at his home in Colleyville to show it to visitors.
According to Colleyville city spokesperson Mona Gandy, the gun discharged and Johnson’s 10-year-old daughter was struck by a bullet that went through a wall of the home.
The girl was taken to Baylor Emergency Medical Center by her mother, where police were contacted. She was then flown to Children’s Medical Center of Dallas. Her condition was not disclosed.
I'm sure that dad feels awful for accidentally shooting his daughter. But this happens every day, and they've still got their guns close by. It's hard to understand.
