Did you see the story where a Mother shoots her son while shooting at the neighbors dog?

A Houston mother accidentally shot her own son in the abdomen while aiming to hit her neighbor's dog. A 6-month-old boxer puppy ran out of it's owners house and the neighbor fired 3 rounds off at the dog but mistakenly hit her own son.
Can you imagine what it will be like in Texas when anyone age 21 or older can carry a handgun as long as they don't have a legal prohibition? No background check, no training and no background checks on private guns sales.

It's called freedumb not freesmart. That's why student loans are so expensive.

If her neighbors dog had a gun, this situation wouldn’t have happened.
[@335805,LvChris] Now you're thinkin. I'm in the process of selling gun racks to hold your rifle on the seat ahead of you when you go out for movie night. You don't wanna be the only one at a Movie without your trusty AR15.

What kind of a neighbor from hell is that? She should have the child removed from her care. When my neighbor's dog gets out, as has happened, and it ends up in my yard, I play with her, give her a treat and then take her home. If they're not home, and she came out through her doggie door, I call them and let them know that she's come over for a visit.

Why would she open fire on a puppy across the street? How dumb do you have to be? She's lucky that nobody was killed, though she shot her own son. Complete madness.

Think she will learn her lesson. Nope. Gun owners want only one thing from guns, death. And if her child dies I hope it haunts her. I have no mercy for monsters.

I hadn't heard, but have since read some online news reports about it aside from the source provided.
I know that many dogs of all breeds and dispositions, have a thng about bicycles. They want to bark at and chase them, given the chance.

I don't even have to "imagine" what happens when hot-headed, impulsive or even just fearful people are carrying a gun. I'm glad the woman's son survived a bullet ricocheting and hitting his abdomen...and that Bruno the boxer just got grazed.

Surprised this even made news in US. Aren't shootings an everyday thing there?
