Busy few days in Houston, Texas. On Friday, I shared the news of a 3-year-old who found a gun in mom’s purse and shot himself in the head with it. He died.
Then yesterday morning, we have this:
A 4-year-old fatally shot himself Sunday morning with a gun he found at his babysitter’s house in north Harris County, officials said.
Relatives said the boy’s mother, Ashley Beal, had left him overnight with a babysitter so she could celebrate her birthday. Authorities aren’t sure how Codrick Beal found the gun in the home in the 1900 block of Imperial Stone Drive.
Now it’s Monday morning, and we have news of a 6-year-old
who apparently has shot himself was shot by his 5-year-old brother. News is still coming in on this one.
All of this comes as the Republican legislature in Texas, as here in Tennessee, debates even looser gun laws. If I were Pat Robertson I’d be thinking God is screaming, shouting, hollering at y’all to knock it off.
But you know, suffer the children, etc.
