Problem: You’ve just shot your grandson who was staying at your house and getting up to take a whiz in the middle of the night.
Total hokum, right? Wrong. Check out this totes similar real-life story from The World:
A Gold Beach man accidentally shot his grandson early Sunday morning.
Arthur Harkey, 72, told authorities he was awakened by a noise and grabbed his gun from his nightstand. Harkey said he was startled by a figure in the hallway of his Gold Beach home, and the gun discharged at close range. Harkey realized he had shot his grandson and called 911.
Patrol Lieutenant John Ward arrived at the scene and found 22-year-old Raymond Murray on the floor with a gunshot wound to his lower abdomen.
But there’s no connection between owning a gun and shooting someone with it and NOT owning a gun and NOT shooting someone with it. And you’d be a fool and a communist to think otherwise.
