3. what a bunch of irresponsible whiners

TX: A 10-year-old boy, Chance Lightner, was accidentally shot and killed by his older brother. The gun discharged, hitting the boy in the side.

That 10-year-old should have had a gun. Then he could have defended himself. Nobody to blame but himself. Or the people who have denied 10-year-olds their unalienable right to have gunz to defend themselves with.

MA: Robert F. Paonessa, 74, shot and killed his son, Robert A. Paonessa, 37, then called 911 to report a "tragedy" before turning the gun on himself.

Why didn't the big baby have a gun and shoot his father first? Completely irresponsible. Nobody else is responsible for keeping him alive. He is. Nobody to blame but himself.

NY: A Calverton man, Melvin Quires, 64, shot his live-in girlfriend, Rena Laborde, 49, in the chest and then shot himself in the head with a rifle. The couple had a history of arguing; last summer, police responded to a domestic dispute call at the home, but no charges were filed.

She should left him last summer then. Women who leave abusive partners are immediately safe. Oh, if they aren't, they should get gunz and carry them around at all times. Then, if they see their abusive ex-partners standing across the street, they can shoot them before they get a chance to shoot first. Nobody to blame but herself. If she insisted on staying, she should have kept a gun hanging around her neck at all times, so she could shoot him first. Oh, and it wasn't a rifle. People don't do bad things with rifles.

UT: A mother, Charity VanLeeuwen, struggles to deal with the murder of her 1-year-old daughter. Police say the child was killed by her own father, Peter Perez, in a murder-suicide that left four people dead inside a South Salt Lake home. VanLeeuwen said her own relationship with Perez was abusive.

If that one-year-old had had a gun like she oughta have had, she'd be alive now. And one more bad guy would be dead. Who would care? Oh, and it's the mother's fault. It always is.

FL: Levert Stewart, 26, opened fire on his wife and children in their car at Jacksonville Beach and is now in police custody. Stewart and his wife got into a fight while driving. His wife, Levonta, got shot three time and the bullets missed the couple's three children.

Well obviously, if the kids in the back seat had had gunz, he would never have done this, because kids with gunz are an effective deterrent to husbands shooting wives. Everybody knows that.

Jeez. Somebody's probably going to try to blame the owners of those gunz for all this.
