  4. It happened here in my area last week One never underestimate a child, they are smart, they watch, listen ..... yes there are gun safety lessons, with an age limit, other wise it is up to the parents to teach thier young children about guns/safety...It is the parents responsibility to Make sure the gun is unloaded, put in the case, lock the case. Make sure the child isn't around, unaware of where the key is hidden, change location at different times. Lock the bullets in a different place as well keep them separate from the gun. In this case there are unanswered questions, the one question is was the gun loaded, ? It was never mentioned if the child found the bullets, loaded the gun. ALMA, MI — A two-story house with white siding and a white truck in the driveway on Penrith near Hampton in Alma showed no activity about noon Friday, July 8. The street was quiet as well. No neighbors were outside, and those who were went back inside when media crews arrived. Just a few hours earlier, police, medical crews, and Michigan State Police Crime Laboratory personnel were outside of the white house at 126 Penrith that was surrounded by police tape. Police were dispatched to the home about 12:15 a.m. for a report that a 7-year-old boy shot his stepfather. Boy, 7, fatally shoots father with 'high-powered rifle' while family sleeps Boy, 7, fatally shoots father with 'high-powered rifle' while family sleeps A 7-year-old boy fatally shot his stepfather while the family was asleep in their Alma home. as far as the toys with small parts many packages do have warnings, simply don't buy the toy. It's the aprents choice to buy the toy or not. The boy removed the weapon from a locked case after finding the keys and fatally shot his stepfather with a "high-powered rifle" while his family was asleep, police stated. Alma Police Detective Jason Biehl said police determined the shooting was accidental based on "circumstances, location of items, and statements from people talked to." The child's mother called police, Biehl said. Police have not released the name of the boy or his stepfather. The boy and another child were removed from the home while police continue to investigate the shooting. "We are just trying to do what we can for the family," Biehl said. Neighborhood resident Ashley Gross said she would often see the stepfather in his yard from her backyard. Gross lives around the corner from the home where the shooting happened and said she was awakened about 4 a.m. by police who asked her if she had heard anything around the time the shooting occurred. She had, but she thought it was a firecracker. "Which is normal around this time," Gross said. 'A hunting family' Biehl said there were a few guns in the home where the shooting occurred and said the victim's family is "a hunting family." "It's pretty common in this area for people to hunt," he said. Gross said the incident is tragic and said the child should have had some kind of gun-safety training. Gross said she doesn't own a gun herself, but she said that many of the people in the area own them for hunting. When she was leaving for work early Friday morning, Gross said she saw the police tape and the crime lab, which brought back memories of her own tragic event. "My mom was murdered in Alma 13 years ago," she said. Gross has lived in the area for 10 years and said that she doesn't hear about incidents like the shooting often. "Why is a 7-year-old," Gross asked, "able to get to the keys while the family sleeps?" Fellow resident Ellie Martin, 14, said her "heart just kind of dropped" when she heard of the shooting. "I felt really worried and upset for them," Martin said. solution to toys with small parts, children could choke on.. Don't buy it.... many toys do have warnings on package about small parts ,choking hazard plus age limits. It is really up to the parent to purchase or not purchase that toy.

  7. Since 1982, there have been at least 81 public mass shootings across the country, with the killings unfolding in 33 states from Massachusetts to Hawaii. Forty-four of these mass shootings have occurred since 2006. Seven of them took place in 2012 alone, including Sandy Hook. A recent analysis of this database by researchers at Harvard University, further corroborated by a recent FBI study, determined that mass shootings have been on the rise. We've gathered detailed data on more than three decades of cases and mapped them below, including information on the attackers' profiles, the types of weapons they used, and the number of victims they injured and killed. The following analysis covers our original dataset comprised of 62 cases from 1982-2012. Weapons: Of the 143 guns possessed by the killers, more than three quarters were obtained legally. The arsenal included dozens of assault weapons and semi-automatic handguns with high-capacity magazines. (See charts below.) Just as a perpetrator used a .40-caliber Glock to slaughter students in Red Lake, Minnesota, in 2005, so too did the one in Aurora, along with an AR-15 assault rifle, when blasting away at his victims in a darkened movie theater. In Newtown, Connecticut, the attacker wielded a .223 Bushmaster semi-automatic assault rifle as he massacred 20 school children and six adults. The perpetrators: More than half of the cases involved school or workplace shootings (12 and 20, respectively); the other 30 cases took place in locations including shopping malls, restaurants, and religious and government buildings. Forty-four of the killers were white males. Only one was a woman. (See Goleta, Calif., in 2006.) The average age of the killers was 35, though the youngest among them was a mere 11 years old. (See Jonesboro, Ark., in 1998.) A majority were mentally troubled—and many displayed signs of mental health problems before setting out to kill. Explore the map for further details—we do not consider it to be all-inclusive, but based on the criteria we used, we believe that we've produced the most comprehensive rundown available on this particular type of violence. (Mass shootings represent only a sliver of America's overall gun violence.)

  9. Venice has been sinking for decades ------it's nature...... basically here When the ground gets upheaves, moves when thawed...then will settle. we have potholes other low areas I overtime..
