Another example of the 2nd Amendment keeping Americans safe.

An Arizona boy didn’t want to clean his room — so he fatally shot his grandmother before turning the gun on himself.

The 11-year-old boy shot Yvonne Woodard, 65, in the back of her head while she was sitting on the couch with her husband Doyle Hebert on Saturday, according to Sgt. Joaquin Enriquez with the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office.

The grandparents, who had full custody of the boy, had asked him to tidy up his room and pick up after himself during the day, but the boy was “being stubborn about it,” Enriquez wrote in a statement.

After the boy shot Woodard with his grandfather’s gun, Hebert ran after him, but returned to help his wife.

Seconds later, authorities said, the boy shot himself. His grandfather retrieved the gun and called 911.

“There had been no previous signs that the grandson might harm someone or himself and there was no cause for concern prior to this event,” Enriquez wrote.

Neighbors were stunned by the shooting, which remains under investigation.

This is once again a case where a young person had an emotional response to something minor, and instead of simply yelling about it and perhaps saying some shit that he would regret later, he had access to a firearm and did something that can never be undone. 

Simply put guns place too much power in the hands of individuals who are incapable of handling that kind of power, and escalate simple domestic incidents into fatal encounters. 

Sure you might be able to chase off a bad guy with your gun or shoot an intruder, but it is far more likely that somebody’s grandmother is going to be killed or a child will in a moment of crisis end their young lives.

    It’s ridiculous that a loaded gun was completely, immediately available to child. Until the adults who own the gun are held responsible for the actions committed by others who use the unsecured gun, this will continue to happen.

    there was another boy who shot someone who wanted him to do his homework. these lil bastards have a shitload of problems at a certain age and then theres guns available to take care of what they deem to be the source of their problem? lord help us all. kids today are not given the tools for coping. instead they are on xbox shooting people. an undeveloped mind times fasd and prenatal drug exposure plus a whole host of other problems can easily be solved if a gun is available. thats what people have learned here in america. we now have an ammoral president and senate that operate like a kid with a gun. what a mess. are there any smart people left in america who can navigate us to a better future?
