An entirely unnecessary 3-year old gun death, and a gun being pulled on a school official. All for what? Nothing!

Time for some updated, sane, rational gun safety laws and restrictions folks. Support politicians who will have the courage to do the right thing for our country and help end this madness.

"In South Carolina, WBTW reported today that Charleston’s Ashley Hall was on lockdown after a woman pointed a handgun at a school official during Monday’s carpool pickup. The police were called and luckily, no one was hurt. Gun-toting 28-year-old Alice Boland was arrested.

In much sadder news, funeral arrangements have been made for a 3-year-old South Carolinian boy named Tmorej Smith, who died due to a single shot in the head after he and a sibling were playing with a pink handgun they thought was a toy. The gun went off and killed Tmorej.

In South Carolina, they conclude their news report with this sad homage to the NRA’s American Dream,“Officials are reminding gun owners to keep them locked at all times and out of reach of children.”

Here is the link to the entire article along with other links. And remember, when you hear "guns don't kill" that line is BS! They kill each and every day across our great nation.

Vet shold have listed the Richmond, VA 7-year old second grader yesterday who was threatening kids with a loaded gun on the school bus on the way to school. Too many guns in homes that's for sure! And our laws are way too lax for what can happen. Like above.

Vet, do us all a favor and STFU already. I seriously doubt that you are a real vet. If you really are a veteran, then you are a two-faced traitor. What about the constitution you swore to defend and protect? You are no better than the corrupt politicians running this once great nation into the dirt.

Vet's half-right, there are too many guns in the hands..... of STUPID people and CRIMINALS.

Are those the reasons I should NOT own or HAVE firearms in MY home or on my person?

My children don't have access to my guns unless I'm with 'em and I (nor my wife) are stupid enough to 'wave a gun' at anybody......

Your blaming the gun and it's stupid, irresponsible people who leave guns out for kids WHO DON'T KNOW BETTER or CRIMINALLY threatning others with a gun.

At 7 years old I knew NOT to play with my dad's firearms.... and I didn't. By the age of ten I was hunting with guns. I'd shown responsibility while afield with a firearm. It's a part of parenting. My kids, at an early age, have seen and handeled my guns. They know they arn't toys.

Commom sense ain't too commom any more.

I agree there are too many guns. All of a sudden every one wants to exercise their Second Amendment rights. Imagine that. Now I have a problem getting ammo and guns. What is with all those wanting to exercise constitutional right? Must be some sort of radicals. The criminals will never have the opportunites Australian, British, etc. have been afforded.

Isn't it interesting how the liberals who supported the popular uprisings in Libya, Egypt, and Syria can't figure out why ANYONE would need an assault rifle?

I heard a statistic the other day that I have not been able to confirm but may well be true. It said that there is a higher level of gun violence in Chicago now than during the gang wars of prohibition.

For Capone, et al, it was just business - not personal.

Today's young savages are all about "street cred" and "rep" and will kill over the silliest imaginable "disrespect." The irony of their being human garbage totally undeserving of any respect of any kind is of course lost upon the vermin.

I saw a middle-aged guy today in Walmart who was shopping with his wife in the cosmetic aisle take his handgun out of his belt holster and play with it for a bit while she shopped. So yea, we've reached or are close to reaching, pure insanity on our nation's gun laws, rather no gun laws I should say.

That's a STUPID individual and you should've called him on it. Or at least called store management AND KPD.

I would've...

That was pretty stupid to pull your weapon out if your not going to use it.Especially in public like that. But I'll be damned if I am going to have my right to protect myself taken from me because of the actions of a few dumb asses. COME AND TAKEM! You better bring your ammo too because you will get mine before you get my weapon if you catch my drift.

So exactly what in high heaven is wrong with taking your weapon out in public for few minutes? I've done it to check the chamber, magazine, or safety, or just to adjust my belt, or even to scratch my you know what. It's mine, I'm permitted to carry and its nobodies damn business if I take it out or not. And I'd suggest you not "call me out" if you ever see me do it, I just might feel threaten by your tone.

Lots of babble, rants and statistics, but still no solutions. I guess we should leave it up to the politicians, because its obvious we can't govern ourselves.

Come to think of it...that would make us all, savages.

The topic was someone unholstering thier gun while shopping at Wal-Mart...

To check the chamber or magizine? To scrach your'you-know-what'? You're unsure of your sidearms condition after you holster it?
That is irresponsible. It's nobody business if you carry but you unholster it in public and it becomes the business of everyone around you.
I would suggest you'd feel threatned by me 'calling you out' because you know that is not right.

I've concluded that any solution is first going to require better enforcement of existing laws. People like Dykes who kill a bus driver and kidnap a child AFTER shooting at his neighbors and killing their pets was WELL known to law enforcement but was free and still had access to his guns. That is irresponseible on the judical system.

Second, the politicians authority comes from we the people and if 'we' continue to reelect those in D.C. then nothing (or worse, the Wrong decisions) will be done... this applies to BOTH parties.

There are no easy solutions or quick fixes but I do know that 'we' have to get past the name-calling, fear, and complacency to begin the positive, proactive changes that are needed.

It is against the law. The charge is "brandishing a weapon."

Totally irresponsible and probably a made up lie just to stir the pot.
