Luckily, some of the other students present were nurses who attended to Mr. Piemonte’s wound until an ambulance arrived to transport him to a Columbus hospital.

I wonder if those nurses were able to use this class for continuing education credit.

Where were the armed guards from the NRA to prevent this?

A Memphis, Tenn., kindergarten student is in police custody after he fired a handgun in his elementary school cafeteria Thursday morning.

The incident didn't result in any injuries, and school is back in normal operation, school officials said.

The Westside Elementary School student, 5, brought the gun to school in his backpack Thursday morning, according to school officials at Westside and at the Shelby County schools superintendent's office.

While waiting for the opening bell in the cafeteria, the gun accidentally discharged once inside the boy's backpack at about 7:42 a.m. CT during breakfast and before school started at 8 a.m., school officials said.

@parados,
I don't believe young kids should have access to guns. All these shootings that young people have done, it is really sad. All those innocent lives that was taken. I don't know how some people can live with themselves & why they did it in the first place. All guns do it destroy lives, bring misery & unhappiness to others. there is sometimes that a gun is needed but the person or people that have those guns should have a good reason to have them, like in the military, police officers, security guards. I don't believe people that have young children should have guns, because if the child finds it, he or she may either hurt themselves or another child. Before someone is able to carry a gun they should go through intensive training, have a permit & should be renewed every so many months. Sometimes a person has to have one to defend themselves, but if that is the case then they should have a permit . Not everyone believes the same way I do. I would like to hear all the responses relating to this issue. GOD BLESS!

Police in Connecticut say an 81-year-old man who was lying in wait with a rifle for a pesky raccoon accidentally shot himself after sneezing and falling from a chair.

New Haven police say James Pace Sr. shot himself in the shin at his home Saturday night. The injury wasn't life-threatening.

Pace told authorities that a raccoon had been scratching at his back door for several days and he was waiting for it with a .22-caliber rifle.

Wendell Docteur accidentally shot himself while riding a bicycle on May 3, but at the time told police he was shot by a gang of men wearing black hoodies over their faces.

Police were notified by a local hospital, which was treating Docteur for a gunshot wound to the right leg.

According to the Connecticut Post, Docteur also told police that the gang robbed him of his money, shot him and yelled, “North End, North End,” which is a neighborhood in Bridgeport, Conn.

However, Docteur was not able to explain to police why there was an exit bullet hole in his pants but not an entry hole.

An 83-year-old grandmother was shot – on National Grandparents Day – as two brothers fought over a cell phone Sunday in a Southwest Miami-Dade neighborhood, police said.

The grandmother, Marian Hall, was trying to break up the fight between her two adult grandchildren outside a Goulds home at 223rd Street and 117th Place, according to Miami-Dade Police.

At one point, one of the brothers, identified as 23-year-old Kenneth Smith, went inside and picked up a gun, officials said.

"Once inside the home, one of the brothers armed himself with a firearm where he intended to shoot at the brother and struck the grandmother in the leg," said Miami-Dade Police spokeswoman Robin Pinkard.

Two Michigan gun owners are dead after what is believed to have originated as a road rage incident. The two men are said to have gotten into an argument while driving, which escalated on the road Wednesday night.

Identified as the two killed in the Ionia, Michigan shooting are James Pullum, 43, and Robert Taylor, 56. Both lived in Ionia, and it’s not clear how precisely the men became so enraged as to draw weapons and fire on one another fatally.

Local news source WZZM has a hazy initial account of the double gunshot death, describing the incident in a way that makes it seem as senseless as it sounds at first glance. According to the station, Pullum and Taylor pulled into a car wash and began shooting after the altercation broke out: “Witnesses tell WZZM 13 a one driver was following another driver too closely. The first driver pulled into the Wonder Wand Car Wash parking lot and the other driver followed them into the parking lot… Witnesses say the driver of the following car fired shots, and the first driver returned fire. Both drivers were shot and killed.”

Two passengers in Pullam’s vehicle were unharmed, but it also appears that neither man survived long enough to even be transported to a hospital after the deadly clash.

As both Pullam and Taylor were killed in the gun fight, investigators are having a hard time piecing together the chain of events leading up to the deadly incident.

However, cops do confirm both of the Michigan men involved in the fatal road rage shooting were legally licensed with concealed carry permits. It has not yet been explained whether one or the other may have been more legally culpable had either survived.

Don't worry folks. People with conceal carry permits would never do this.

People make mistakes with other tools;
Y shud guns be expected to be different ??
If there were no mistakes with guns,
then that 'd be a miracle. Thay 'd be
the first tools in human history to be free of mistakes in their use.

@OmSigDAVID,
People that HAVE the tool make the mistakes. Ergo.. more people with guns mean more "mistakes" with guns.
