Not only that, these geniuses took him to the local fire station instead of a hospital.

A big whoopsie there, no reason to take away gunz.

The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office said its "thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of this tragic accident."

After all, there's nothing else we, as a society, could possibly do in response to this kind of incident.

I would also like to nominate the person who  brought and dropped the gun for the NRA's Responsible Gun Owner of the Year award, which really should be a thing.

Thoughts and prayers.
 
2020-10-25 2:07:16 PM  
Too bad the kid didn't discharge the gun towards the 'responsible gun owner'

THAT would have been karma.

/of COURSE the Texass sheriff won't do jackshait.

Is that a gun in your pocket or are you just happy to see a bunch of 3-year-olds? Either way, pretty farked up.

Well you never know if a good guy with a gun will need to stop a bad kid with a plastic fork.
 
2020-10-25 3:45:22 PM  
No charges will be filed against him because he's clearly a responsible gun owner

He politely killed a 3yo.

Because as we all know. "..blah blah polite society"

///no wait i dont wonder, put him in a hole to rot w his weaponized idiocy and impotence
 
2020-10-25 4:36:04 PM  
This is what also pisses me off about gun NUTTERS.

Not everyone necessarily believes we need to ban all guns... GUN NUTTERS believe GUN CRIMES like this shouldn't even be crimes.

It's time we take GUN NUTTERS out back and... well, you know.
 
2020-10-25 4:36:56 PM  
Use a farking holster.

Jeebus.

But because GUN NUTTERS exist, he probably won't even receive a fine.

And who the hell keeps one in the chamber at kids birthday party?  That is a disgusting level of negligence.  This article should be about an accidental shooting/suicide.

If you're going to a birthday party for a 3-year old, you will enjoy the experience far more if you feel safe and secure.  Things can get out of hand.

Hey, executing 3yo's is just the price of our freedoms.

We wouldn't want to attack our precious selfish freedoms.

Besides, what if my Saturday spontaneously turns into a farking Rambo movie?!?! Huh smart guy?

I specifically qualified it with "in prison".

Trump will never, ever go to prison. Because our country is Hell.

What can you say, responsible gun owners choke sometimes.
 
2020-10-25 4:43:15 PM  
IMO - if you want to own a gun, you first have to:

1) Take a gun certification course to show you how to appropriately handle a weapon, including storage and cleaning
2) Register said weapon so that your state knows what weapons belong to you and they can trace them to you
3) Registration and certification are YEARLY things - if you fail either, you lose the right to own a weapon for 5 years
4) if you lose a gun, its stolen, or something adverse happens with a weapon that you own, you lose the right to own a weapon forever and you get charged with whatever crime was committed with the weapon since you failed to store it appropriately

In other words, take care of your dangerous property in a manner to lessen the dangers to people around you.  If your weapon was used in a crime or cause injury/death to someone while it was NOT in your position, you are still responsible for it because it is YOUR weapon.

The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office said its "thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of this tragic accident."

I'd be much more impressed if they showed up with warrants and handcuffs to arrest the guy who brought a loaded gun to a child's birthday party.
 
2020-10-25 4:44:12 PM  
These things happen. Small price to pay for our rights.
 
2020-10-25 4:44:18 PM  
Look all of you sick people judging and having no clue what it's Like when a group of ravenous, rabid three-year-olds turns on you like a pack of wild animals. You may be able to take two or three down by yourself, if you're fit in a vehicle to take five or six down, but eventually they'll gang up and start gnawing on your legs until there's no meat left. Probably after the cake is gone.

This was cut and dry self-defense. If he hadn't brought that gun he be dead right now.

Pocket holsters are a thing but I doubt this person had one.
I too don't understand how the fark you don't realize the weighty hunk of metal fell out of your pocket.  My gun loaded with a full mag weighs 2-1/2 lbs.  No matter where it is on your person, you know it's there, and you damn sure would know if it suddenly wasn't.
 
2020-10-25 4:45:03 PM  
"Thoughts and prayers" is a funny way of spelling "oh well" and "tragic accident" is a funny way of spelling "criminal negligence."

I can't believe people are still using that phrase, now that people know it's just another way of saying "Gee, that sucks. Anyway..."

Probably a .380 in a pocket holster and it fell onto carpet. There's a Mike's pocket holster for guns sized like the Kel-Tec P3AT and quite a few people do pocket carry them.

lots of people. i run a gun store and i see dipshiats with full size glocks sticking out of their Sweat pants pockets all the time.
 
2020-10-25 4:47:02 PM  
I have a conceal carry permit. I have a holster specifically designed for carrying a firearm (I also don't carry a firearm unless I'm out hiking in the middle of nowhere). WTF?
/is the gun ok?

Sounds good.

But testing people on knowledge isn't any more helpful than thinking people who don't wear seat belts or drink and drive know how to buckle up or not drink and drive.

They know. They just convince themselves they are exceptions.

In all fairness, he may have originally thought the party was going to be at Chuck E. Cheese so he was just being prepared.

Wtf the NRA is the deadliest killer in the US. They fight tooth and nail to make sure idiots like this carrying around a loaded gun in his damn pocket have unlimited access to weapons with as little knowledge and training as possible.

Good work NRA, another dead child.

Smackledorfer: They know. They just convince themselves they are exceptions.


Yep.  But the regular testing is to show if they're competent to use a fire arm and take care of it appropriately.  Hell, we "test" people more for driving vehicles than we do for guns.
