Congratulations, Unidentified Texas Family! You’re Our 2nd Amendment Heroes Du Jour

Three-year-old Texas child finds gun in mom’s purse, shoots self in head, dies:

HOUSTON — A 3-year-old boy has died after accidentally shooting himself in the head in northwest Harris County Friday afternoon.

It happened just after 12:30 p.m. in the 7400 block of Betanna, according to the Harris County Precinct 5 Constable’s Office.

The child was rushed to Memorial Hermann Hospital by Life Flight, but doctors couldn’t save him.

Investigators say the boy found the gun in a purse up on a shelf.

So much for our “safest, most responsible citizens evah:

Harris County Precinct 5 Captain Romeo Chapa tells us they believe the child’s parents have a concealed handgun permit […]

Don’t they teach you in those concealed-carry classes not to leave a loaded gun where a three-year-old can get his hands on it? Or are those classes mostly “long evenings of platitudes, Obama jokes, and belligerent posturing”? Just wondering how they do it in Texas.

  3. Wasn’t there a movement a while back to send pix of all of the dead kids, wives, ex-wives and other “Totally, completely by askident, the dang gun just went off by itself” victims of gunhorseplay to the poobahs at the NRA? I was all for that. They should also put those pix out there for the morons in the TX, TN, AZ and other leges to have a gander at.
