A 4-year-old boy was accidentally shot in his upper body by his 6-year-old brother in their home in Northeast Baltimore on Friday evening, city police said.  The boys' father took the victim to a hospital, where he was being treated Friday night for a wound not considered life-threatening, police said.

 

Detectives believe the children found a handgun inside their home in the 5800 block of Falkirk Ave. in the Ramblewood neighborhood, police said. Their father was home at the time, police said.

And this happened with the GA in session and hearings about firearms coming up.

 

You know what is next. More laws against guns. Which is much easier that PUNISHING the idiot father for leaving a loaded gun laying around.

 

What is so hard about putting a gun lock on the firearm ESPECIALLY A LOADED ONE. The last two I bought even came with gun locks as part of the package. But then I guess when you buy guns off the street (admittedly an assumption) they probably don't come with gun locks.

The cops surely have the gun in hand. They will check. Likely more to tell about this incident ......

Even if the gun is legal. What a blip'n idiot.

Hope they slap the cuffs on him and escort him to jail.

This is the type of silly shxt that gives gun haters fuel for their cause. Never mind that 99.9% of legal gun owners don't screw up. They will harp on the 1% and not the fact that that 1% are idiots.

And that 1% statistically is still way less that the number of idiots that are allowed to drive.

There's already a state law prohibiting  it.  That father broke the law.  

 

There's also a federal law prohibiting a felon from possessing any firearm (a mandatory 5 year sentence).  He broke that one too.

 

Now it's up to the judicial system punish him.  The legislature doesn't need to do anything.

The boys’ father, Lamont Pulley, 30, was home during the time of the shooting and transported the boy to a hospital in northeast Baltimore for medical treatment.

Police say the boy is expected to survive.

Pulley was arrested later Friday night. Police have formally charged him with possession of a handgun and failing to store a loaded handgun properly. Pulley is also prohibited from possessing a handgun.

I am not doubting the first two statements. But A)which law are you referring to...there are so many :lol: and B) when did it come out that he was a felon?

 

Last sentence. A) ahhh yeah...like the judical system punish all the bad guys to the fullest extent of the law :rolleyes:B) You are correct they don't need to make more laws....you know that....I know that...most anyone that is NOT a gun hater knows that. Problem is THEY DON'T.

 

Maybe the legislature should focus on making JUDGES and the courts apply MANDATORY AND I MEAN MANDATORY PENALTIES. No plea bargains, no 'he had a rough life or what about the kids or you have to understand the circumstances'. Garbage

 

The 5 year penalty is SUPPOSED TO BE MANDATORY. Is it ever? Not.

 

Now a bleeding heart will probably say 'ooohhhh what about the children who will take care of them?' BS...it will be the same ones that take care of them now most likely, the tax payers and social services.

The paper says 'the father'....was he a FATHER...or like many ...just a sperm donating,  free loader, living with his latest incubator?

This is a tragic story and the parents should be held accountable.  So many assumptions from some of the usual suspects. How about waiting to see if the gun was illegal or not?  This was an accident. :rolleyes:

How hard is it to keep a gun in a safe location when you have little kids in the house, right? Human stupidity never ceases to amaze. Glad this idiot was arrested.
