Police said Wednesday that a 9-year-old girl pulled the trigger in the fatal shooting of her 7-year-old brother while their parents were briefly away from their Arkansas apartment.
The shooting on Monday afternoon was not an accident, Little Rock Police spokesman Lt. Terry Hastings said, but he declined to comment any further. Hastings' remarks come a day after a police spokeswoman said the girl shot her brother and then backtracked to say only that the girl was responsible for the shooting.
I wonder if the kid will face the death penalty. People need to be held responsible for their actions. Accountability is important.
But, by all means let's not involve the parents. They were just exercising their god-given, constitutionally-protected, natural human right to own a gun. "Shall not be infringed" means exactly what it says.
