ADMIN:    Another carless gun owner contributes to death of a child.  How can you not lock you vehicle doors to start with?   You know you have a gun in the car and still don't lock the doors?   I hope the gun owner is also charged as this incident would not have happened without their carelessness.   Here is the story:

A 12-year-old Tennessee girl has been charged as a juvenile with killing another girl in her grandmother’s apartment with a stolen gun, the Nashville Metro Police Department said Sunday.

Brentrice Wilson, 16, was pronounced dead at the scene after officers were called to an apartment in Madison around 3:25 a.m. after a report of a shooting.

Police said the 12-year-old sneaked out of her apartment without her grandmother's knowledge with Brentrice and several other girls.

They found an unlocked vehicle and burglarized it, taking a loaded semi-automatic pistol, the paper reported.

Police said the girl brought the gun back to the apartment and the 12-year-old was handling it and pointing it at the others when it fired, Fox 17 Nashville reported.

The girl has been charged with criminal homicide and the case will be handled in juvenile court, according to police who continue to investigate.

We see quite a few unsecured vehicles with weapons stolen from them, 99% of them are young Marines who don't have a lot of common sense when it comes to firearms ownership. Being in the military has jack to do with owning firearms. Most if not all are " I'm in the military and by default a gun expert" types. 

They'll spend over $1000.00 on a 1911 and then buy a $10 nylon holster for it [rolleyes]

Hey, I'm a dumb Jarhead and highly resemble your remark............... I mean resent.   Not really, the key point you made is "Young" and the word that follows young is "dumb".

I have seen the same thing with holsters.   Another one is the guy that spends $1500 on a Deer Rifle then goes to Walmart and puts a $90 scope on it.   I took most of my Deer up here when I hunted with a New England arms Handi-rifle in .270 but I had a Leopold Varible II on it.  The old $10 saddle on a $40 horse syndrome.

Most here are the opposite, they'll go the $40 saddle on a $10 horse route every time, they eventually upgrade to a custom kydex holster.

Few people these days use a leather holster, I prefer leather and it seems they are getting scarce for guns that are not made of plastic. I carry a plastic gun on duty, off duty I carry a revolver.......in a leather holster.

See there? It's the gun's fault. All of this is because the gun decided that its moment had come, and fired! This is why we must ban such things!
