Well this is a disturbing statistic: more and more toddlers are finding guns and shooting people with them. And these probably aren’t all the reported cases:
There have been at least 43 instances this year of somebody being shot by a toddler 3 or younger. In 31 of those 43 cases, a toddler found a gun and shot himself or herself. 13 inadvertently killed themselves. Roughly once a week this year, on average, a small child has found a gun, pointed it at himself or someone else, and pulled the trigger. Boys are disproportionately likely to do this: I could find only three cases where a girl under the age of 4 wounded someone with a gun. In 13 of the 43 total incidents, a child’s self-inflicted injuries were fatal.
Team Blackness also discussed a man detonating a bomb at a Walmart, an EMT who got in trouble for making an unscheduled stop to help a choking girl, and the husband of an Oklahoma mayor thought it was cool to dress up for Halloween as a KKK member.
