Guns and Kids

The five year old who killed his two sister is not that uncommon in this country.  Children get their little hands on guns.  They explore them.  They go off.  Someone dies.  I've heard that there are about 114 similar deaths in the under 10 age range every year.  The numbers are higher if you take in all folks under 18 and under all conditions.  Most of the folks who defend guns are those bitter, god fearing, gun toting grits who inhabit crackerland.  They are largely evangefundies.  I'm struck how their second amendment right to kill someone ravings trumps their right to life anti-abotion rantings.  The crowd is the same.  The stances are inconsistent.
