The headline on the Freep story today was bad enough — Girl, 9, shot dead at sleepover — and the story was worse, which you can imagine. But the closing paragraph was almost too much to bear:
Detroit Police Sgt. Eren Stephens said parents should secure any weapons around the house.
Now there is some helpful advice.

reminds me of a producer we had awhile back… every time there was a shooting overnight she’d say the same thing in the morning meeting, “why don’t we just NOT HAVE GUNS?”
which went on for awhile, till she took another job… in Miami.

Yesterday, in the Fort, there was a story of a four-year-old who shot himself with a handgun. I say too bad he didn’t take out his parents with it, who must be absolute morons to have left it lying around.
