• 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.
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.
