NEW SEWICKLEY TOWNSHIP, Pa. — A 9-year-old Pennsylvania girl was shot in the shoulder by a relative who mistook her for a skunk during a Halloween party.
Police say the girl was wearing a black outfit and a black hat with a white tassel attached to it when a relative shot her with a shotgun Saturday night.
Paramedics took her to Children’s Hospital in Pittsburgh, which about 50 minutes away from the shooting scene. She underwent surgery at the hospital.

1. Guns!

 

Guns are absolutely NECESSARY according to the DU Gun Lobby! The Delicate Flowers therein are scared beyond belief by the world outside their doors, and gotta pack heat 24x7.

3. How fucking big are the skunks in Pennsylvania?

No, seriously, everywhere else, skunks are like, cat-sized. And as far as i am aware, don't tend to be bipedal. And htey don't go to halloween parties.

So what the fuck is really going on here?

8. Maybe finally we have hope. The new superpac started to go against the NRA may be the answer

 

in the past, any attempt at doing something was met with full force by the NRA

now there is someone equal to go for anyone on either side who backs doing something about guns in the streets

and it's the legal guns that are the problem, because one can easily stop illegal guns if there were no guns allowed at all.

long as there are legal guns, nothing will ever be done.

and millions of senseless deaths will occur.

Everyone who is killed or harmed has had their 1st amendment right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness trumped by the G.D.'ed 2nd amendment being wrongly interpreted.

I am crying for this hurt child.As for the person who did it-are you an animal abuser?
Why would you be shooting an animal with children around?
Shades of Bambi's mother.
