The sheriff says the shooter was "probably just methed up and has a history." Maybe people with a "history" of being methed up shouldn't have guns. Via WMTW.com:

WMUR — An 8-year-old Portsmouth boy was shot and killed in a random shooting Monday while his family was vacationing in South Carolina, officials said.

The boy was identified as Quarius Dunham, a third-grader at the Little Harbour School in Portsmouth.

A South Carolina coroner reported that the boy was shot in the neck and died. His father was shot in the leg and survived.

Police said Charles Montgomery Allen, 40, is accused of randomly shooting at cars driving by his house Monday on Old River Road in Florence, South Carolina. Three cars were hit.

He might even have been drinking. Because combining alcohol and guns is one of the Great American Pastimes and if a little kid has to die to protect Our Sacred Rights, well, it's a small price to pay for freedom.
