@Region Philbis,
IF she had been properly trained,
in the earliest grades of public schools,
then she 'd have known better than to have racked the pistol.


It was an educational failure. Her estate shud sue the school.

@OmSigDAVID,
I've never understood why it takes more education/training to get a driver's license than to own/carry a firearm. It should take at least as much, if not more, as they're both potentially deadly.

It doesn't.

It takes more education and training to get a license to carry a gun in public than it does to get a license to drive a car on public roads.

There is no education/training required to buy either a gun or a car, but there is generally more scrutiny given to people who buy guns.

@oralloy,
In Tennessee, I had to take a one-hour class for my concealed carry permit. At the end, the instructor handed out a multiple-choice test and openly gave the correct answers to anyone who asked. Then we had to go out to the range and shoot a paper target for maybe 5 minutes.

The test to get my driver's license was much more difficult. Also, when I visited a friend in Mississippi, I got pulled over by a cop and showed him my permit, as required. We chatted about the requirements to get one. In Mississippi, there's no test (unless they've changed). You just pay your money and get the permit.

@OmSigDAVID,
Yeah, I've thought about that, too. We have to pay to fish, hunt, camp out, even just to fecking hike in lots of places. That ain't right.

TULSA, Oklahoma - A Tulsa resident has been hospitalized with a gunshot wound after she tried to fend off two people who tried to rob her at her north Tulsa home.

Tulsa police said she was outside having a yard sale in the 1600 block of North Evanston Avenue on Saturday afternoon when a man and woman approached her. Police said they aren't sure how at this time, but the trio somehow ended up inside the home's kitchen.

According to TPD Sgt. Dedlorn Sanders, while the suspects began gathering up the victim's belongings, she produced a gun to defend herself. Sanders said the male suspect tried to wrangle the gun away from her, and the victim accidentally shot herself in the hand during the struggle.

HYANNIS (CBS) – A man walking his dog was shot by a hunter on Cape Cod Monday evening.

Police are calling this an accidental shooting, but the hunter is facing several charges.

At about 5pm Monday, the hunter, 47-year-old Sean Houle of Marstons Mills, was in the woods near Mary Dunn Road in Barnstable.


He was hunting with what police call a black powder gun, almost like a musket. He fired two shots and then heard the victim scream out, ‘stop I’ve been hit.’
