    She wrote this before the shooting.


    “Even my 4 year old gets jacked up to target shoot with the .22"




    No one died in the incident.

    What a conundrum?

    Will she stop letting the kid have guns from here on?

    And if not, every drive with the kid is going to be a harrowing experience.

    She looks a lot like a girl I dated a long, long time ago.

    And reminded me of this:

    I feel very bad for that kid. This could be something that will haunt him for the rest of his life.

    As for the mom what sort of responsible gun owner doesn't secure their weapon enough that a child could take it? This is an issue I've brought up about self-defense. I agree that handguns are powerful tools for self-defense but if not used and secured properly you have to worry about those tools being taken and used against you.

    His mom survived and he probably won't remember the incident a decade from now. I think he'll be fine.

    Yeah, she should have secured her weapon and not let a 4 year old access it without her supervision. I don't really like the public shaming though.

    How bad is it when a gun safety advocate gets accidently shot by their own 4-year old? I mean this wasn't just a gun owner.

    I think it's incredibly irresponsible to let anyone that young even touch a handgun.

    Eh....it's not like this is just some random anonymous lady. When you put your views out there for everyone to see, and then something like this happens, it kind of comes with the territory.

    If some member of the westboro baptist church got caught with a gay prostitute, he would deserve all the public shaming he gets.

    Eh, her advocacy seems to consist of saying pro-gun stuff on Facebook. I say a lot of anti-gun stuff on this bbs. If my 4 year old (okay, 6 year old) shoots me in the back with my own gun, will people start calling me out for hypocrisy as a 'gun control advocate' who let his kid get ahold of a gun? With the internet and social media, I'm not sure if anyone can just be random and anonymous.

    Her advocacy wasn't really just limited to a coherent pro-gun safety stance at all. Reading through her "Gun Sense" page before it was pulled down, I actually found very little about responsible gun ownership. It was far more of a "pry it from my cold dead hands" page with the often repeated and totally mis-characterized "all liberals hate guns" posts.

    I'm a gun owner and a Texas liberal, and I know there are plenty more of us (some on this bbs). I also know that there are plenty of people out there who are vehemently opposed to guns, would never own one themselves, and would prefer to see no private citizens owning them. There's just a fundamental difference though between someone like her (who incessantly waves the "guns = freedom" flag, and chooses to wear a gun as an accessory with the goal of irritating those who disagree with her), and those people who you might never even know own a gun, but who very carefully practice safe gun ownership. I personally have no problem shaming people like her because it gives the rest of us a bad name.

    I think there's a big difference between putting yourself out there on an anonymous basketball website vs. Facebook where everyone can see exactly who you are.

    I might be biased here because I get really annoyed when people put all their angry divisive political opinions out on Facebook for everyone to see...then get butt-hurt when someone calls them out on them. You can't have it both ways.
