Three-year-old shoots himself and his baby sister – WTF?


A nation full of 2nd Amendment children

A 3-year-old boy and his 1-year-old sister remained hospitalized Wednesday after he accidentally fired a pistol in their Macon, Ga., home, police say.

Sgt. Sean Defoe with the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office said Gary Davis, 30, and Lashonda Hopkins, 25, were in the bedroom Tuesday evening while their toddlers were in the living room unattended, Macon’s WMAZ-TV reported.

The boy allegedly climbed onto a shelf and grabbed a loaded .22-caliber handgun that accidentally discharged while he was examining it. The bullet nicked both the boy’s thumb and his sister’s knee, police said.

The children were taken to a hospital where they were reported in stable condition.

No charges have been filed, yet. I would suggest Criminal Stupidity. For the parents.

I have guns in my home. At least one of them is loaded. No children.

Still, none of them are easily accessible to someone casually or even inquisitively wandering around the house. Because sometimes we have guests which includes the younger set.

The safety is always on. No round in the chamber.

Best Drinking Water in the Nation? Macon, Georgia


Good golly, Miss Molly!

Macon’s drinking water has been judged best in the country in an annual contest.

Judges at the annual meeting of the American Water Works
Association in San Diego gave the honor to Macon this week in a
competition that’s similar to wine tasting.

Macon qualified for the national competition by winning top
honors in Georgia during last summer’s competition. The city’s
water authority sent water samples to San Diego for judging.

The water is regular county water judged at room temperature.

Lakeway, S.C., finished second and Silverdale, Wash., was third.

Some stories are as exciting as watching paint dry. You’re welcome. Since I’ve spent a considerable amount of time in Macon, the story interested me.

They did talk about other things as well:
