1 teen dead, another critical after Kan. shooting

WICHITA, Kan. Police in southern Kansas say a 16-year-old who was on a weekend pass from a children's home has fatally shot a 17-year-old boy and critically wounded his own 17-year-old sister after finding them together.

Wichita police say the shooting happened about 1 a.m. Sunday, and the shooter remains at large.

Police Sgt. Jesse Boomer says police responded to the home after getting a report of shots fired. He says the boy was dead and the girl was taken to Wesley Medical Center, where she was in critical condition.

Police say the shooter was out on a weekend pass from the Wichita Children's Home, an emergency, temporary shelter for abused and neglected teens and runaways.

5. Not Wal Mart
I used to live two blocks from that hospital. It sits at the edge of a rough neighborhood. To answer your question, any of the drug dealers and gangsters that makes life miserable for the good folks between Grove and Hillside.

6. Already illegal. Do you want to make it doubleplus illegal?
How will confiscating my guns make that situation better?

11. That's just what I say so you won't know I'm breaking into your house RIGHT NOW to take your guns.
Seriously.

NOBODY is proposing any laws to take away your guns.

As a matter-of-fact, your gun-ownership rights are MORE secure now than they have ever been in your lifetime.

Now, go check your gun safe... hurry!

Too late!

I got 'em!

12. So what was your point for posting this current events story then?
If not to try and gain emotional support for a more restrictive law on gun ownership?
