One Of The Headlines In Ireland Today

Courtesy of RTE:

Police in Chicago have arrested the father of a six-year-old boy who accidentally shot dead his three-year-old brother.

CBS is reporting that Michael Santiago, the father of the two boys, has been charged with child endangerment in connection with the shooting.

He is accused of knowingly storing a loaded firearm on top of his refrigerator.

The six-year-old boy got the revolver from the fridge and shot his brother in the head.

The victim was brought to hospital by a family member where he was pronounced dead.

I don’t know why they suddenly decided to report this. It is a daily occurrence in the US.

    There are so many kids being killed by their parents guns, they can’t keep track of them! Maybe if you own a gun and decide to have children, they ought to be forced to have an abortion or give up your guns. Good guys – bad guys. Good boys – bad boys. It’s never the gun!

    It is newsworthy because the father was arrested. How often does that happen?

    People should think twice before letting their kids play at their friends houses. These clowns with guns are so careless, it is scary. Someone has to be held responsible when a child gets a gun, and shoots someone. If a man needs a gun, he should ask himself why his lifestyle requires that type of protection? Honest, law abiding folks do not need guns.
