North Carolina toddler puts gun in his mouth, pulls the trigger.

Courtesy of HuffPo: 

A North Carolina toddler found a handgun in his parents’ bedroom Saturday afternoon, put it in his mouth — and the gun went off, authorities say. 

The Asheboro boy is “extremely lucky,” a sheriff’s captain tells the Winston-Salem Journal, because the bullet missed his vital organs.

This is what constitutes " extremely lucky" in a toddler with gun story these days, "bullet missed his vital organs." Because so often vital organs are hit, either on the toddler himself or some other child or adult in the vicinity.

According to Newser the two year old's father was home at the time (It was his gun.) as were his mother and three of his older siblings.

Yet not one of them bothered to protect this child.

By the way if you have seen this meme pop up on your Facebook of Twitter account lately, Snopes would like you to know that it is true.

And unfortunately most of those lives taken, have been the toddler's.

    Part of the problem is that there are too many people having too many kids. Just how many siblings does the kid have? The Earth cannot support all of these people selfishly procreating. Another problem is breastfeeding women who announce on social media that they have mastitis. Tacky!

      what is your problem exactly? Stay off social media if truth makes you sick. Mastitis is no fun. And yes, there are too many people on tis earth, but the NRA is making sure that the next generation of GOP voters is smaller, at least.

      The father should be arrested!
      Gryphen, you should of posted under there the pic of DUH with Sailor and the machine gun! That would of been fitting!
      And yes, these fundy's breed like bunnies! Idocracy is here!

    So because the toddler was "extremely lucky" and had no damage to vital organs does that mean that his father was not charged with reckless endangerment for leaving a loaded gun where a small child could reach it in a home with four small children?

    This or worse could happen in your home, Bristol Palin.

    Someone needs to send that picture to Dumbkota, Bristol, and the entire elected GOP.

    From Dakota's pic with the sailor/machine gun

    dakotameyer0317Look @bsmp2 she's a natural! #sailorgrace #america #minigatlinggun #beingadadistheshit #startthemearly #sailorgracesupportsthe2ndamendnent

    She's a natural what? Born killer? Honestly, natural what?? Yeah, "start them early". Then Gryphen will have yet another horrific child/gun story to post about. These people are sick.

    I'm always amused that the atheist/agnostic hippie, flower children, peaceniks are hated by those who worship a god and guns.

      Heaven forbid they should pose Sailor with a stuffed animal or doll. It would be Un-American, not patriotic!!!

      Nothing like a nice cuddly gun for an 8 month old.

      If Levi was smart he would take that picture and march into court and demand that Tripp & the rest of the brood are in danger from Unfit drunken, drugging parent and demand full custody of Tripp and child support from HER, and get all the other kids put in foster home.
      Why doesn't he do that? He has so much ammo against her!

      you know, if I had an ounce of spare art time, I would use the gatlin gun pix that Dakota posted with that accurate meme. Shows their stupidity and ignorance while making the point.

    "bullet missed his vital organs."
    like his brain, something his parents lack.

    If the NRA were a liberal organization, these 2nd Amendment, rednecks would be all up in arms that there is a conspiracy to kill their children by promoting gun ownership.

    As it is they are fine with killing their own children, because it is their Constitutional right!!!

    That goodness for Obamacare, the rest of us don't have the burden of increased insurance rates to cover all the ER visits, surgery and follow up care of kids harmed by their parent's 2nd Amendment right.

    That is a very powerful message and even sadder because it is true.
    Somehow my husband and I managed to raise two great kids into adulthood without ever owning a gun.

      My parents raised two daughters with no guns and both my sister and I have managed to live our lives without any guns.

      Once, when I was babysitting as a college student, the parents of the children I was watching told me that they kept a gun in their bedroom. They thought it would make me feel safer, I suppose, because they lived in the country and were going to be out late but it made me feel scared for the first time in my (then extensive) babysitting career.

    It happened again in Seattle this week. A two year old shot himself. He is in critical condition but expected to survive. Mom's boyfriend is a convicted felon. Not supposed to have a gun. But he had one.

    Waiting for such a headline about the palin famdamnily. My guess, it will be Trig, since he really has no idea what guns do to people.

    It's ok, did ya hear? Donald is "The Law and Order" president (in his head). I hope Hillary passes stricter gun laws and gets them through.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
