It’s not Monday in America until some toddler shoots himself in the face

MyFox8, NC: Randolph County deputies said a 2-year-old boy accidentally shot and injured himself when he found a handgun at his home Saturday afternoon.

Deputies said the toddler saw his father’s handgun in his parents’ bedroom and put it in his mouth, where it accidentally went off.

Authorities said it happened around 2 p.m. at a home on Spring Valley Road, just outside the Asheboro city limits.

Deputies said the boy was taken to Brenner Children’s Hospital in Winston-Salem and is listed in serious condition but expected to survive.

Authorities said the bullet missed the vital arteries in the neck and head and also missed the spinal cord. Deputies said it’s a miracle the child is still alive.
Remember, two-year-olds sticking guns in their mouths is exactly what the founders intended when they wrote the Constitution. Nothing to see here. Move along.
