Preschooler finds gun in glove box, keeps America safe by shooting himself in the side.

Courtesy of TPM:  

A preschool-age child in Troy, Michigan shot himself after finding a gun in the console of his mother’s Ford Mustang, the Detroit Free Press reported on Friday. 

According to the paper, while his mother loaded groceries into her car in a Kroger parking lot, the child found the 9 mm Smith and Wesson and shot himself in the side. The wound was not fatal and the child is out of surgery, Troy Police Captain Robert Redmond told the Free Press. 

Redmond said that it was unclear whether the gun was left in the car by the boy’s mother or her husband, but that “she’s still responsible for the child’s safety.”

It seems that this is just about the best outcome one can expect when the headline contains the word "preschooler" and "gun."

Yes he shot himself, but no he is not dead.

Your good news story of the day.

    I'm sure his aim will improve, and next time, he'll kill someone. But the family will be grief stricken over the 'terrible accident,' so unless he's black, no charges will be filed.
    Anyone else notice how most of these shootings involve young white boys?

      Reportedly, there was an older son who was helping load the groceries...keep track of this family..the kids have access to guns, and obviously, know how to use them.

    On the BBC World report this morning I heard an interview of woman who survived the suicide bombing of her wedding. She related how her faith in God and knowing it was in her destiny as planned by God to endure this made it easier for her to accept the deaths of those in her family from this event..
    God planned for this little boy to shoot himself so nobody can really be charged or held accountable. It was God's will. Open and shut case.

    Why is someone so scared they think they need a gun to go to the store?
