Tennessee Gun Report

Two accidental shootings this week, one fatal.

• December 15, 2014:

1- A 6-year-old Memphis boy shot his 4-year-old sister in the face at their grandmother’s house. The gun was kept “for home protection.”

2- Also in Memphis: a paranoid 61-year-old man mistook his wife for an intruder and shot her in their bedroom. She died.

3- A 19-year-old Greeneville man shot a 6-month-old cat named Grandpa in the back of the head at point-blank range for no reason other than he’s a sadistic fuck. Donations to his veterinary care are currently being sought.

4- In unrelated acts, a dog and cow were also shot in Greeneville. Greeneville has a gun problem, as I noted in a June gun report.

5- Today in armed society/polite society: an intoxicated Hawkins County man fired a handgun at two neighbors with whom he had a property dispute. Various drugs and guns were later found inside his home. Law abiding, etc.

A Nashville woman angered that the Dept. of Children’s Services was going to put her infant in foster care returned to the DCS building with a gun and shot up the building and a car in the parking lot. Great way to prove your fitness as a parent, lady.

    And the woman involved in the 4-year-old’s shooting had lost a daughter to a gun incident previously. Gun owners are so goddamned smart, aren’t they?

    Would you think about posting the link about Grandpa to Balloon Juice? Those folks are always generous to animals who need financial support. So very, very sorry to hear about this poor little kitty and hope the piece of crap who shot him gets the book thrown at him in court.
