Another kid shot in his own home

KSLA: A 3-year-old boy is at LSU Hospital after being shot with a .22 rifle in a North Bossier Parish home Monday afternoon.

Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office Lt. Bill Davis says deputies were dispatched around 6 p.m. to the home on Scarborough Road off of Butler Hill Road in Benton.

Deputies believe it was an accident that happened when the rifle was knocked over by a sliding glass door after it was bumped by another child.
This keeps happening over and over and over, with sickening regularity. But of course, we shouldn’t do anything about it, because… Well, I’m not really all that clear on the because. Because some people are too fucking stupid to understand cause and effect, I guess.

But good thing the family had that rifle handy, huh? Otherwise, some criminal might’ve busted in and hurt someone in the family. Yes indeedy-doo, a bullet hole in your toddler is really a small price to pay in exchange for keeping your family safe.
