Woman using gun's laser sight to play with cat shoots friend




Authorities say a Wisconsin woman accidentally shot a friend while using the laser sight on a handgun to play with a cat

KENOSHA, Wis. -- A Wisconsin woman accidentally shot a friend while using the laser sight on a handgun to play with a cat, authorities said.

A criminal complaint charging the 19-year-old woman with negligent use of a weapon said she was visiting a Kenosha apartment on Tuesday afternoon where a 21-year-old man had brought a handgun.

The woman, who a witness said had been drinking, picked up the handgun, “turned on the laser sight and was pointing it at the floor to get the cat to chase it,” when the gun went off, the complaint filed Thursday said.

The man, who was standing in a doorway, was shot in the thigh, authorities said. He left and went into another apartment, where police found him after responding to a 911 call, the Kenosha News reported.

A tourniquet was applied to his leg to stop the bleeding before he was taken to a hospital. There's no word on his condition, but authorities said he was facing charges for violating bond conditions that prevented him from having a weapon.

The woman told police she thought the magazine had been taken out of the gun and said it “accidentally went off,” according to the complaint.

1). The gun owner was the dipshit for handing her a loaded gun.

2). The chick is a dipshit for not understanding how semi-autos work.

3). They should BOTH be charged with 2nd Degree Ignorance......
I can reduce that to simpler terms. "Don't touch a gun unless you have been trained period."

FIFY

This should have been written into the 2nd Amendment, but our Founding Fathers really did not have so much first-hand experience with hard-core stupidity

Alcohol, stupidity and firearms.....a combination that has slightly improved the gene pool for many decades.

Responsible gun owners keep their weapons unloaded and secured in a safe.

That way kids or idiots can't shoot themselves or others.

Of course, this makes the whole "guns for home defense" argument a joke too. Not many Americans live in daily imminent danger of their home being invaded by evil motherfuckers with AK47's.

Middle schooler fatally shot by fellow student in Albuquerque


One student was killed by another in a shooting at a middle school in Albuquerque, New Mexico, on Friday. 

The shooting took place at about 12:45 p.m. local time between two male students during a lunch break outside Washington Middle School. Friday was just the third day of classes for the school district. 

Police were unsure what grade the students were in, but said they were both approximately 13 years old. 

The shooting was an isolated incident between the two students and the shooter was immediately taken into custody by a school resource officer, police said. Officials praised the resource officer for quickly rushing to the scene and de-escalating the situation before taking the shooter into custody.

Another student who witnessed the incident said that the two students were fighting when the shooter pulled the gun.

I have no idea at all. Most cases like this end up with small fines or probation for the parents. This kid will go to juve, but will be out in no time compared to the other kid.

Do you still have to pay the custodial parent child support if your kid is in juve for murder?
