    Oklahoma man drunkenly fires off 30 rounds from newly purchased gun — and hits baby’s crib a half mile away

    DON'T MISS STORIES. FOLLOW RAW STORY!

    An Oklahoma man drunkenly celebrated the purchase of a new gun by shooting off dozens of rounds, police say — and one of those bullets may have struck a baby’s crib a half mile away.

    Andrea Johnson heard a loud noise outside her Moore home about 1:30 p.m. on Saturday afternoon, but she was unable to determine its cause until the following day after going into her baby son’s bedroom, reported KFOR-TV.

    “I saw this piece of wood that was kind of messed up in the bar of his crib,” Johnson said. “I thought it was kind of funny. Well, he is teething, maybe he had chewed on it, maybe he ninja-kicked it in his sleep — he kicks a lot.” Johnson, whose husband was away at the time serving in the U.S. Army Reserves, tried to find the rest of the wood chips so her 18-month-old son, Axel, couldn’t put them in his mouth.

    “When I pulled his crib back is when I saw something on the ground, bent down, picked it up and realized it was a bullet — and that’s when I just absolutely lost it,” Johnson said. Police said the bullet pierced an outside wall, the living room ceiling, a second interior wall and finally was stopped by the crib bar....

    This is the kind of thing the NRA should be ranting and raving about. But they just ignore or shrug off incidents of egregious carelessness with firearms that often result in injury or death. They should make it their mission to try and educate the public and keep track of their success and bragging if their public service helps reduce accidental shootings. If they were as militant about the safety issue as they are about the right to bear arms they might actually have an impact.

    Some other responsible Iowa gun owner was shot by his dog the other day. They were playing on the couch apparently, before it got serious.

    They do. In the firearms safety courses they teach a million people very year. The NRA does more for gun safety than Everytown, Moms Demand, and every other gun grabber group combined.

    So why don't they speak on incidents like this? I know they teach safety courses (which people pay for and are mandatory for many) but of all the things they shake their fist at, irresponsible gun ownership is never one they are willing to take on in a public campaign? I don't recall EVER seeing any sort of CSA by the NRA concerning gun safety. It's always the right to own. Always.

    "The NRA. Freedom's safest place" - why do I know their slogan by heart? Because I've seen dozen of television commercials for the NRA. They promote gun ownership, not gun safety. They're trying to get pissed off Republicans to send them money for pissing off liberals. It's all they do.

    Why not make these safety courses mandatory, as they do with driving?

    If you're clearly not a sensible gun owner, should you still retain the right to own a gun?
    And yet stupid people still own THEM! Go figure.

    Sounds like someone is projecting his own lack of self control onto others.

    WHAT "distance you are suggesting" No distance to the creek where to kids were shooting was mentioned. The ONLY distance mentioned was the rounds hit a barn 30 feet behind the poster. NO distance fro, where the shot were fired was mentioned.
    WTF?
