Stop me if you’ve heard this one before.
(Newser) – A Birmingham woman who was hit in the chest by a stray bullet managed to hang onto her newborn even as she fell back into her apartment and died, reports al.com. Police say Sheri Williams, 24, was holding her 10-day-old son while standing in the doorway of her apartment yesterday when she got hit by the bullet and fell back onto a couch. She was found dead at the scene, still cradling her child. He wasn’t injured, reports WBRC. Two men had gotten into a fight at a restaurant near Williams’ housing complex, and one started chasing the other down the street while shooting, say police. No arrests so far. — Newser
Two song titles come to mind: How Many More Times? and When Will They Ever Learn?
Once more we see what happens when the moonbats and libtards of this nation throw themselves between ordinary citizens and their own safety, sneering at the nation’s most vulnerable, innocent demographic while wiping their bums with the Constitution.
In the Miller case, the Supreme Court of the United States affirmed that the Second Amendment bestows individuals’ right to bear arms. And as National Rifle Selling Association President Wayne Le Pee-Air has pointed out, “The only defense against a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.”
And yet poor deceased 24-year old Sheri Williams, doubtlessly cowed by the sheep-like bleatngs of anti-American pacifists like BHO and his Congressional Cult of ‘Crat Commies, neglected her own precarious status by standing unarmed and vulnerable in her own apartment. How can any responsible young mother behave so recklessly — cradling her own 10-day old infant while unarmed?
Had she kept her wits about her (as well as a protective loaded firearm), she might have avoided this catastrophic outcome by spotting the danger before it evolved, and fired off first. There’s be a pair of dead or wounded street thugs — two parking spaces! — but instead, we mourn a young life cut short and an infant orphan.
When will we wise up, America? Our wise Founding Fathers recognized that guns are our friends; we need more, not fewer, if we want to take a bite out of crime and restore sanity. That’s what the Second Amendment is all about: safety, security, and patriotism.
Meanwhile, the Second Amendment Foundation has started a collection to buy the 10-day old child a weapon. When it comes to self-protection, it’s never too soon to take precautions.
BURKESVILLE, Ky. — A 5-year-old boy accidentally shot his 2-year-old sister to death in rural southern Kentucky with a rifle he had received as a gift last year, authorities said.
The children’s mother was home at the time of the shooting Tuesday afternoon but had stepped on to the porch for “no more than three minutes,” Cumberland County Coroner Gary White told WKYT-TV.
White told the Lexington Herald-Leader the boy received the .22-caliber rifle as a gift. He said the rifle was kept in a corner and the family didn’t realize a bullet was left inside it.
“It’s a Crickett,” White said, referring to a company that specifically makes guns, clothes and books for children. “It’s a little rifle for a kid. … The little boy’s used to shooting the little gun.” — Washington Post
Holy hollow-nose, Batman — again? Why was the little 2-year old unarmed, vulnerable to attack? Why were the 5-year old’s precious 2nd Amendment rights to bear arms effectively upheld, but not his sister’s? Age discrimination? Sexism?
You think maybe big brother might have thought twice about pulling the trigger if he knew baby sister was carrying? Remember — the only defense against a baf guy with a gun, etc.
Two years old. We don’t even get a parking space out of this one. Tragedy after tragedy.
