The NRA must be so proud!

This week there was another tragic firearms accident in the States –

A 10-year-old boy has died after he was shot in the head accidentally by his 13-year-old brother inside their St. Louis home, police say. 

The tragic shooting that left Anthony Turner, 10, dead happened on Sunday evening at the Clinton-Peabody public housing complex, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.  

St. Louis police say the boy’s older brother was handling a firearm when it went off around 5.45pm and the bullet struck the 10-year-old in the head. 

How can a 13 year old get hold of a loaded weapon in his home?

The following day a politician used the soundtrack of a shooting in a TV ad showing his support for gun rights!

Alabama Congressman Mo Brooks is using audio of last month’s shooting involving GOP Whip Steve Scalise and other Republican congressmen in a campaign ad touting his support for gun rights.

Brooks is running in a Senate Republican primary to fill the seat left open by Jeff Sessions, who became U.S. Attorney General.

I really don’t think the Founding Fathers meant the right to bear arms included kids do you?
