Since JNM just HAS to bring up accidental shootings AGAIN, here we go:

Every year 72 children die in shooting accidents. That is 1.6% of all children who die in the United States every year.

Now lets look at other deaths: Car Accidents 4,550 deaths per year 46.2% of children Drowning 2,102 deaths per year 17.4% Fire/Burn 482 deaths per year 10.6% Suffocation 250 deaths per year 5.5% Pedestrian/Other 145 deaths per year 3.2% Other Land Transport 144 deaths per year 3.2% Fall 98 deaths per year 2.2% Poisioning 81 deaths per year 1.8% Natural/Environment 73 deaths per year 1.6%

More kids die a NATURAL DEATH than die by a gun every year. Ban natural deaths.

The amount of child drownings in home pools FAR exceeds firearms accidents in children, and there are many less pools than handguns in homes. Yet there are no calls from the left for banning of pools. The ones I posted are only a small number of the drownings in just a short period of time. Home pools and home chemicals always have been the largest danger for children. Children's vitamins have even been responsible for child deaths and injuries, by iron poisoning.

Two Bellevue residents have been cited in connection with the drowning of two-year-old Katie R**** on August 16.

Katie's grandmother, 46-year-old Leticia F****, has been cited for misdemeanor Child Neglect. Katie was in her care at 606 Garden Avenue when the child left the residence with Franco's 14-year-old daughter.

The 14-year-old, described by authorities as mentally challenged, was later found at a supermarket. Police then found Katie's body in a swimming pool in the backyard of a home at 301 Garden Avenue.

The owner of the house with the swimming pool, 52-year-old Arthur P****, has been cited for Failure to Maintain Proper Fencing Surrounding a Pool. Nobody was home at the P**** residence when Katie got into the pool.

Two-year-old Sean would have turned 3 years old next week but tragically it was a birthday that was not to be.

His mom found him at the bottom of the family's swimming pool on Thursday. Police tell 3TV Sean was left alone downstairs for about ten minutes while mom was upstairs tending to the other children.At some point he crawled through the doggy door and somehow wound up in the water. His dad tells 3TV, “My 8 year old daughter jumped in and helped pull him out.”

Sean's mom started doing CPR but an hour later he died. Firefighters say they see it all the time.

In fact, on the same day Sean drowned a 3-year-old girl in Tonopah had to be airlifted, though she was expected to survive.

In the meantime Sean’s dad is at a loss for how to protect his remaining four children from this big backyard danger. “Watch your kids at all times…and put up every measure you can to prevent a tragedy like I've suffered.”

Whatever it takes, he says he just hopes people heed his warning.

Child drowns in Stamford pool during small party

August 2, 2008

STAMFORD, Conn. - Stamford police say a 5-year-old boy's death in a family's swimming pool this week appears to be an accidental drowning.

The child was a guest of a nanny who had been invited to bring friends to the home's private pool Thursday. Police say the boy had not been swimming and was not wearing a swimsuit, but might have fallen into the pool.

His name was not released. Police said an autopsy Friday determined he had drowned.

A police investigation is continuing, but a spokesman says it appears to be an accidental death with no sign of a crime.

JMN: Saw that story yesterday, and have to agree with Jack, the parents should be charged. Exactly brings me to my posts of last week, my fears (even though my son is responsible), accidents can happen no matter how responsible people are.

I'll stick to my "gun" and use a baseball bat. In the long run, when your number is up, doesn't matter what you may think is the best protection.

Tattoo Shop Owner Blasts Burglar

No charges expected, no need for a trial By Jim Forsyth Tuesday, August 26, 2008 San antonio Tx He wanted to rob the tattoo man, and he ended up with a tag on his toe.

Police say the world's dumbest burglar shattered the plate glass window of "Perfection Tattoos" in the 3500 block of Blanco Road on the near north side about 2 this morning.

The idiot apparently didn't realize that the owner of the establishment was still inside, and when the owner saw the wanna-be burglar go back to his vehicle and grab a lighted Molotov cocktail, he decided to take action.

The cops say the store owner grabbed a shotgun, and tattooed the would be robber with a blast right across the face. The bad guy was dead on the spot.

Police are investigating the dead man, but say the store owner was well within his rights to protect his property and no charges are expected.

THIS IS THE MOST RIDICULOUS THING, WE HAVE EVER HEARD ABOUT GUN CONTROL!

Obama is proposing to make it a felony for a gun owner whose firearm was stolen from his residence which causes harm to another person if that weapon was not securely stored in that home.
