Stuttgart Daily Leader reports
A 14-year-old Stuttgart minor was accidentally shot in the buttocks at 10:30 p.m. Wednesday and transported Baptist Health Medical Center-Stuttgart.
Stuttgart Police Department said there would be no charges filed against the 15-year-old male, who was playing with the gun.
The boys found a gun and were playing around. Nothing unusual about that. It makes me wonder what kind of gun safety training they'd had. Arkansas is a gun friendly state, I think you could say.  Greg could tell us. Wouldn't it be likely that these boys, like most of their counterparts had been educated by their elders in the proper use and precautions to take with guns?
