    A teen shot herself accidentally in the leg in Harris County, Texas with an AK-47 weapon.

    Why aren't children being given mandatory gun safety classes, like the ones that the NRA offers?
    Even those with parents who aren't gunowners, should be required to attend, because as adults they may well decide to own arsenals and will need to know safety.

    Secretary DeVos needs to sign regulations requiring Gun Safety be taught beginning in Kindergarten and continuing up through the Penitentiary level.

    Deputies: AK-47 that wounded teen, stolen in earlier burglary

    Yeah because it's important gun thieves practice gun safety

    Any moron that tries to put an AR 15 in their pants deserves what they get. A little common sense would have prevented this

    That said gun safety should be taught

    Wait, she stole the rifle and what you're upset about is that she didn't understand how to handle it safely?

    Working hard to live up to the title "conservitard' huh?

    Its not just gun thieves you know that suffer this kind of accident.

    The great Plaxico Burress took one in the leg from his own weapon in New York- and it was his own weapons.

    That was an unfortunate case as the Libs insisted on jailing the man because of the city's Draconian gun laws. Believe me, if someone shoots themselves in the leg, they will have learned their lesson about basic gun safety.

    FORCE people to attend weapons safety training when they don't own weapons??!!
    ---that's sounds naziish/etc
    ..mouthwash/aspirin/etc have child protective caps/etc
    ..you need a prescription from a doctor to obtain medicine which is designed to CURE, not KILL
    ..it is just common sense that a ''tool'' designed to KILL, should have child [ etc ] protection/etc

    ...so if you fire a weapon in a city, there should be no repercussions??
    just fire off weapons??!!
    ....they are not draconian laws--they are sensible laws that WORK to keep the murder rate low--we do want that, yes??
    New York City population -8,600,00 - [ 8.6 MILLION ] --murders 290
    VERY pro-gun St Louis population 320,000--- murders 199
    !!!!!!

    There WERE repercussions in the Burress case. Anyone who shoots themselves in the leg learns their lesson not to do that again.

    BTW, Burress did not mean to shoot himself, his weapons ACCIDENTALLY discharged. To send someone to prison for a long time over a freaking accident is extreme.
