Father pretends to shoot his daughter, before actually shooting her, and then lies about it to the police.

Courtesy of the Temple Daily Telegram:  

The 7-year-old son of Justin Ryan Jones said his father was pretending to fire at his sister when the gun went off and he shot the 9-year-old girl, according to an arrest affidavit. 

Jones, 30, of Austin is charged with injury to a child, a first-degree felony, and remained in the Bell County Jail on Monday in lieu of $25,000 bail, jail records showed.

Jones reportedly told a Bell County Sheriff’s Department deputy he was showing his children gun safety when the gun he was holding fired and shot his 9-year-old daughter. 

But Jones’ son said his father was pretending to shoot them. 

The 7-year-old said he liked the clicking sound the gun made. He said his father pulled the trigger and “his sister was shot,” the affidavit said. 

Jones’ other son, age 6, said his father was pointing the gun at his sister and held it in both hands while pretending to shoot them.

Personally I don't see how this guy fails to make it as an NRA poster boy.

Let's face it we have become inured to the idea that guns are dangerous, and we have lost our respect for the devastation that they can inflict.

Guns are not a tool nor a toy, they are an implement of death.

    And just as it looked like Florida was taking the lead in the Which State is Most Batshit Crazy, here comes Texas on the outside.

    "Iowa Lawmakers Approve Bill That Would Let Kids Have Handguns". Because the only thing that stops a bad parent with a gun is a good kid with a gun.

    If those children were carrying, they could have defended themselves!

    Someone needs to start a page showing the mug shots of these ammosexual idiots. Like a great big, scrollable montage of photos of every parent that has shot their child or allowed their child access to a deadly weapon.

    I don't know if many (or any) of these cretins has even sense enough to be ashamed of what they've done (actively or through neglect) but their images should be up on a wall of shame, just the same.

    Congrats to the NRA!

    Yet another victory for the 2nd Amendment !!

  7. Huffington Post has an excellent article regarding guns in this country and our insane obsession with iPhones.

    The graphic regarding deaths in this country as a result of terrorists versus guns is from Rolling Stone and is absolutely classic. (They do not count 9/11 but only terrorist attacks with guns.)

    This is about the governments obsession with Apple and the iPhone rather than with Guns and doing something about them.

    Pretty spot on article. It's written by James Allworth, an Australian, and compares the U.S. reaction to the Australian one, which was to gather up all of the guns and destroy them.

    She liked the clicking sound the certified gun safety expert father's gun made, what kind of excuse it that? She also likes the sound of jail bars and keys being slammed behind her daddy, I hope someone higher up with half a brain in Texas throws the book at him and destroys the keys. As you said, guns have one purpose, to kill, the girl's lucky daddies aim was off, or she'd be dead, not that that lessens or ameliorates what she has to go through the rest of her life, but it may make her feel a little safer.

    1. It's Texas.

      When they get before the judge he'll ask if the girls OK, and then no harm done, be more careful next time and he'll get a slap on the wrist. The girl will probably be brought out to cry how she loves her daddy and please don't take him away.

      Throw in some Jeebus and there you go.
