Guns don't kill people ....

... But they accidently discharge, sending a bullet into a 15 year old girl's head and a 15 year old boy's neck.

Guns don't accidentally discharge. We cannot assign accidents to guns. Guns are innocent bystanders. PEOPLE accidentally discharge.

I have read a statistic that said nearly 28% of all drivers on the road are caused by accidents, so that would support your theory about people accidentally discharging.

"backpack to school".

If it was a packrat, I could understand, but a backpack?

Possession of a firearm implies that you know how to use it. Not just how to fire it but also how to clean, transport and store it.

Unless you're going to really need it, you transport those things with security on and completly unloaded (no mag inside and no chambered bullet).

And possession of a weapon (either firearm or blade) implies that one day you may have to use it. And that you'll be responsible for that.

Clearly not the case in this affair.

But then it's not ready to pop that old lady blocking the crosswalk with her walker. I'm kidding, not pop her, just hurry her up a little.

No need to keep it loaded to do that... Just show it to the lady... She'll pass away from fear or cross the street at full speed...

Either way, she'll grow wings
