Gun Culture Club: Do you really want to shoot me?

This seems to be happening much more frequently these days:

A young boy managed to get hold of a gun Thursday afternoon and shot his mother in the face as they both rode in a work truck on Interstate 95, Johnston County authorities said.

Authorities were investigating how the boy got his hands on the gun.

It can't be that big a mystery. The gun was either in the glove compartment or under the seat. Or maybe in her purse. But whatever the case, it was also loaded. And if it was an automatic, a round had probably already been chambered. Which would make the "idiot" checklist complete. Here's another one, this time taking the life of a 10 year-old girl:

NC GOP's school safety plan fails to mention firearms

The first rule of Gun Club: You don't talk about Gun Club:

It is a stark reality when your General Assembly feels it necessary for all public school students to learn how to control bleeding in order to keep schools safe. It is even more stark when, even though it isn’t explicitly said, that bleeding is likely to come from a gunshot wound. But here we are.

The House Select Committee on School Safety approved its report to the full General Assembly, along with draft legislation, Thursday, and without talking about guns, it ends up being all about them.

The really sad (and disgusting) thing is, the main reason NC Republicans refuse to discuss guns, even when it comes to school shootings, is because they're afraid of gun nuts like Paul Valone of GRNC. They're afraid they will be a target in the GOP Primary, which for many of these gerrymandered empty suits is the only electoral danger they face. They would rather do nothing of substance than risk popping up on the radar of these groups, which makes them complicit in whatever future school shootings occur. And it's doubtful if the gun debate will even happen in the near future:
