Staple this to your FACE

Local news: kid playing with gun shoots self in foot.

We hear emergency vehicle sirens throughout the day since we live near a busy intersection, but when they stop near us it's usually on the block to our west. (It has less-expensive apartments on the near side and a Taco Bell on the far side. You may remember the 'Bell from a road-rage stabbing I posted about last year.) Yesterday I heard a bunch stop in the much quieter block to our east and wondered what happened.

The DMN's Crime Blog filled in the blanks for me this afternoon: 15-year-old Dallas boy shoots himself in the foot while watching Iron Eagle.

Somebody failed at home gun storage.
