Too many guns out there folks! Time to strengthen our gun safety laws and stop these tragedies. Not everyone can and should have a gun. Period. Support politicians who will support intelligent gun restrictions and legislation.

LUMBERTON, N.C., March 26 (UPI)-- A 10-year-old Fairmont, N.C., boy was accidentally shot to death when the 12-gauge shotgun his father was cleaning discharged, police said.

Christopher Stanlane Sr., 34, was on a couch in the family home, cleaning the gun with the butt of the gun on the floor and it discharged Sunday afternoon. Christopher Stanlane Jr., sitting on the floor watching television, was struck in the head, Capt. Anthony Thompson of the Roberson County, N.C., Sheriff's Office.

Stanlane's wife, in another room, called 911. The boy was pronounced dead at Southeastern Regional Medical Center in Lumberton, The Fayetteville (N.C.) Observer reported Tuesday.

No charges have been filed.

FLINT, Mich., March 26 (UPI)-- Police and school officials Tuesday were still trying to learn how a Michigan first-grader came to have an unloaded handgun in his backpack at school.

Flint Township Police Chief George said officers were at Dye Elementary School the day after the gun incident to talk with students, MLive.com reported.

Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton said if the weapon was taken from an unsecured location at home, there could be a fourth-degree child abuse charge brought against whoever was responsible, MLive.com said.

KOKOMO, Ind., March 21 (UPI)-- A former teacher in Indiana is facing charges after a gun he allegedly hid in the ceiling of a class room fell to the floor during a class, officials said.

Christopher Johnson, 52, of Frankfort, Ind., on Tuesday was charged with possessing a firearm on school property and criminal recklessness for the incident, the Kokomo (Ind.) Tribune reported.

Johnson, a former teacher at the Kokomo Area Career Center, allegedly hid a loaded handgun in a classroom at the center.
Auto tech students discovered the gun while playing with a tape measure, which hit the ceiling, sending the loaded 9mm Beretta and its holster to the floor.

Johnson turned himself in at the Howard County Criminal Justice Center Tuesday morning. He has since posted $7,500 bond and has been released.

Kokomo police notified Kokomo-Center officials that Johnson, who last taught at the school in May 2012, placed the gun in the ceiling.

Ya know, ya can't drive a car on the road without passing a test and being licensed. Then you're checked every few years to make sure you really can still do it.

But any swinging di*k can walk in a store and buy a big ole gun, giant magazine, tons of bullets, and waltz on home putting his family, neighbors and neighborhood in danger.

What's wrong with this picture? Why do Republicans and NRA losers oppose any and all sane gun laws? It's crazy.

You do not have a right to drive a car. You have a right to own a gun. Besides, you only need a license to drive a car on public roadways. You do not need a license to purchase and use an automobile on private property. In most states, you need a license to carry a gun concealed in public.

So when does this guy lose "his right" to have a weapon?

A Pennsylvania Wal-Mart might want to change its motto to "The buck stops here. Literally."

Arcangelo Bianco Jr. is facing a grab bag of criminal charges after being arrested for deer hunting in the parking lot of the Burrell Township store. According to the authorities, Bianco was on his way out of the store when he saw the deer run around the corner of the store. He grabbed a handgun from his truck and "began firing multiple rounds at the deer. Bianco reportedly bagged the deer beside a nearby highway and also picked up a misdemeanor count of reckless endangerment and several hunting-related violations.

Like Vet said, way too many guns around and NOT everyone should have one.

Ya know, reading these stories and responses, it's pretty clear stupid people are attracted to guns. At least that's the common thread in all.

Since I seem to recall Jay saying a while back he had two guns himself, which by some accounts would firm up the findings that stupid people are indeed attracted to guns. Interesting.

How'd you miss this "responsible gun owner" story???

A man in Texas accidentally shot his girlfriend in the face, killing her, after his gun went off during a tussle with another man last week, local police say.

The victim has been identified as Ashley Walters, of Corinth, who died at a Denton hospital on Thursday.

Walters, 21, was reportedly standing near her boyfriend, Whiskey Dalton Welcome Williams, of Denton, when his gun went off during the fight at his residence on Wednesday afternoon.

You only read the stories where things have happened badly. Many stories where a firearm prevented an incident never gets published. Firearms are handled by US citizens over a million times a day. There will always be a VERY SMALL percent of incidents when looking at that kind of numbers.

Are you calling all gun owners stupid?

The U.S. has enough gun control laws on the books already. We need common sense crime control laws and we have to enforce ALL the laws we already have. The asshats making all the headlines and causing the problems we read about need to do 'real' time instead of plea-bargining down to just a 'slap on the wrist' and thrown back into the population with the rest of 'us'.

Restricting the responsible gun owners isn't the answer. We're not the problem.

Yes, he did, no question. I'll add to his assessment those outside of law enforcement who carry 24/7 are weak, scared little people, many with an inferiority complex. Tinfoil hats are popular among this crowd too. Their easy to identify in conversation as being out there.

Figures you would think this. I wonder if your opinion would change if you ever got robbed or even shot and survived the situation?

When do cars become illegal? They kill/injure more then guns. Your philosophy is flawed.

Putting all gun owners into such a narrow-mined profile isn't a smart way to get your point across or convince anyone your stance is a valad one.

It sounds to me like you are just scared of guns in general regardless of who is carrying them.

Again, responsible, lawful gun owners arn't the problem. Restricting 'us' isn't going to do a bit of good. Even the POTUS and V.P. have said as much.

Yes but you can't rule an armed populous. At best you can only govern.

With a gun you are a citizen. Without a gun you are a subject.

An armed society is a polite society.

Guns make my work more dangerous. You never know when the homeowner, muggie or intended victim may be armed too. While I am raping their wife and daughter or carjacking their car armed victims could shoot me. I hope my government protects me and makes law abiding citizens give up their guns.

Let's start with the law that prohibits convicted felons from possessing *any* firearms. There was a pilot project several years ago where the Feds partnered with local law enforcement agencies to enforce that common sense existing law. There is widespread agreement on all sides that felons should not possess firearms, right? The way it worked, whenever local LE would arrest a felon, the Feds would step in and handle the prosecution and incarceration. The NRA supported it. The Brady folks supported it. I'm not sure why prosecutions under that law have fallen out of favor.

As a scumbag politician I am trying to get the felon vote. Look felon, I will protect you from prosecution if you will vote for me.
They are now giving the felon the right to vote.

It's very simple, you scratch my back I will scratch your back. Felons, politicians - what's the differences. Never in the history of the United States have there been so many corrupt and crooked public officials from Judges to Congressmen. There is no more ethics in our government. It is about as corrupt as it can get. Our political whores sell government favors like a street whore sells sexual favors.
