They had a day of family fun ahead of them.

Eric Moore, a father of three from LaPlace, La., was planning to take his kids out to eat before heading to the movie “Angry Birds.”

Before they left the house, police said, Moore jumped in the shower.

“The father said he was taking a shower when he heard a gunshot,” Lt. Greg Baker of the St. John the Baptist Parish sheriff’s office told NBC affiliate WDSU. “He got out of the shower, and that’s when he discovered that his daughter had accidentally shot herself.”

Five-year-old Haley Moore had been playing with her father’s handgun, police said. Moore told investigators that he had left his .45-caliber gun out on a table in the home, the station reported.

Baker told the station that the bullet entered Haley’s right chest and exited under her left arm.

Joy Ursin, a next-door neighbor, described a harrowing scene outside the Moore home about 9:30 a.m. Saturday.

Hiding guns from kids is a bandaid solution that produces just as many accidents and more ignorance.

Responsibility is a personal affair, it isn't something a numale mangina such as yourself gets to ask the government to enforce.

Fuck off and be wrong somewhere else.

Hiding guns is not the only solution, but I guess not having foresight means you can't see that.

doesn't it seem like this stuff happens a lot more often lately? ever since bloomberg started throwing his money around. wow, what a fukken coincidence that nobody would ever notice
A 5-year-old girl was playing with her baby brother and 3-year-old neighbor early Wednesday when she found a gun, police said.

The revolver had been tucked under her grandmother’s pillow in the Detroit home. It was loaded. And while in the hands of the little girl, the weapon went off, hitting her in the neck, splattering her head all over the wallpaper and killing her, Detroit police said.

“The grandfather went upstairs and found the baby, and immediately called 911,” officer Jennifer Moreno, a spokeswoman for the Detroit Police Department, told The Post. Medics transported the 5-year-old to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead on arrival.

Multiple news outlets, citing family, identified the girl.

“It was an awful tragedy that has all of us shook up and our heart broke,” the girl’s aunt, Freda Davis, told WWJ 950.

Exactly. They just did some study and found that kids from gun-homes or pro-gun parents who do not own guns do an infinitely better job teaching their kids gun safety than anti-or non-gun parents.

The kids from the latter group picked it up and started playing with it, while as the kids of the first group generally left it alone, or picked it up and did not touch the trigger or muzzle sweep everyone in the room.

My condolences on being functionally illiterate.

>not wearing a hardhat is criminally negligent
>if anyone doesnt wear one, THROW THEM IN PRISON

By your logic not wearing protection, which only potentially harms yourself and not others, is in the same scope as giving a kid a firearm.

And this is why everybody has the stereotypical dumb fat redneck view regarding firearms owners.

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Authorities say the Portland police chief accidentally shot a friend while hunting in Harney County in April.

Harney County Sheriff's Lt. Brian Needham says deputies were called to the Catlow Valley area about 80 miles south of Burns on the afternoon of April 21 for a shooting.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports that a 54-year-old man was shot once in the back.

Needham confirmed Portland Police Chief Larry O'Dea was the hunter who fired the shot that hit the man.

Portland police say O'Dea was on vacation when he had a "negligent discharge" from his .22-caliber rifle that injured one of his close friends.

Police say the wounded man was treated at a hospital and released back to the wild.

>More than a million Brazilians have joined anti-government rallies across the country, ramping up the pressure on embattled president Dilma Rousseff.

>Already struggling with an impeachment challenge, the worst recession in a century and the biggest corruption scandal in Brazil’s history, the Workers party leader was given another reason to doubt she will complete her four-year term.

>The demonstrations on Sunday – which reached all 26 states and the federal district – were expected to be bigger than similar rallies last year. The largest took place in São Paulo, where the polling company Datafolha estimated the crowd at 450,000, more than double the number it registered last year.

>Organisers, police and local media calculated far greater numbers. According to police sources cited by Globo, 3.5 million people took part nationwide in 326 cites, including 100,000 in Brasilia and 70,000 in Curitiba. The exact figures are contested, but undeniably huge.

>In Rio de Janeiro, dense crowds stretched along the beachfront from Copacabana to Leme, and organisers estimated there were as many as a million participants. Police had yet to provide figures, but it looked likely to exceed 100,000.

>Many protesters wore the canary yellow shirts of the national football team, or draped themselves in the national flag. Others carried banners expressing anger at bribery scandals and economic woes.

>Parents brought children, and some families wore matching “impeachment now” T-shirts. Neighbours travelled on public buses, chanting anti-Rousseff slogans.

Darn, should have been playing some MMOs.

Seriously though, good on them. The BRs actually stood up to make their voice heard in pretty massive numbers.

Imagine what America would be like if Americans did the same thing, if protests weren't limited to extremes on both sides with the hippies of Occupy Wall Street and the morons of the Teat Party, if protesting wasn't seen as something only bad people do.

Except this time they are protesting against impeachment, which will be automatically viewed as something bad or at least insignificant.

Meanwhile, I have to note, it seems like there are a lot of people who were at low start since the first news, so at this point they are rushing to make as much business as possible.

Where do you get that? Even the first line of the OP says they are anti-government rallies.

I doubt they would be protesting against the impeachment of the head of the government when they are doing anti-government protests. It would be like saying a Tea Party protest is pro-Obama.

Yes, people protest against government that impeached President. Many of them still protest against the president, too, but of course, modern law in most countries allows such procedures without nation-wide voting.

A normal person in developed country wouldn't be very friendly towards "feminists", "left" and "nationals" and such, but they have no idea that they are talking about a developing country that has a lot of standards to catch up to.

This is the world we live in...If you do math on a plane, you're probably a terrorist.

On Thursday evening, a 40-year-old man — with dark, curly hair, olive skin and an exotic foreign accent — boarded a plane. It was a regional jet making a short, uneventful hop from Philadelphia to nearby Syracuse.

Or so dozens of unsuspecting passengers thought.

The curly-haired man tried to keep to himself, intently if inscrutably scribbling on a notepad he’d brought aboard. His seatmate, a blond-haired, 30-something woman sporting flip-flops and a red tote bag, looked him over. He was wearing navy Diesel jeans and a red Lacoste sweater – a look he would later describe as “simple elegance” – but something about him didn’t seem right to her.

She decided to try out some small talk.

Is Syracuse home? She asked.

No, he replied curtly.

Sorry but the rise of Wahhabi Islam can be directly linked to the Saudi government's response to the 1979 Grand Mosque siege. The king believed that the the attack was divine punishment because they weren't being pious enough, and therefore the country needed to be more pious.

This is spot on honestly, it's basically what the Islamic Golden Age was.

Sprinkle in some shitty critiques-from-the-Islamic-perspective of previous philosophical works, some forcefully converted foreign philosophers, and some burning of foreigner books so they seemed dumber by comparison through the lens of history.

He's off just by a few years.

Ottoman policy was to de-emphazise Islam in their Muslim conquests, and overemphasize it in their Christian conquests, in an attempt to reach some kind of mad balance. Also because Saudis and Iranians have more claim to the "throne of islam" due to their links to Mohammed.

The desert dwelling Arabs were a non thing, and the Persians over-emphasized Islam as a way to paint an us-vs-them picture, and paint Turks as apostates.

When the Ottoman empire got BTFO, their previous Muslim holdings had the pendulum swing in the other direction, and they over-emphasized Islam.

This came to a head in the 50s with Gutb and the like, when Islamism started being supported by the west as a way to fight the atheist Commies.

Police in Montgomery County arrested a man Friday afternoon who is a suspect in the fatal shootings of a man at a mall in Bethesda and a woman at a grocery store in Aspen Hill, and is believed to have killed his estranged wife outside a Prince George’s County school on Thursday.

The arrest of Eulalio Tordil, 62, a federal police officer, ended a manhunt that began Thursday and forced authorities to put Montgomery County schools, government buildings and retail establishments on lockdown. Three other people were wounded in the attacks. The lockdowns were lifted after the arrest.

Police said the Friday incidents began about 11 a.m. when one man was fatally shot, another critically injured and a woman wounded in the parking lot of the Westfield Montgomery Mall in Bethesda. Police believe two of the people shot had rushed to the aid of the first victim. A short time later, a woman was shot and killed at the Aspen Hill Giant about nine miles away. Police did not publicly identify any of those victims.

The violence started Thursday evening, police said, when they believe Tordil fatally shot his estranged wife, Gladys Tordil, outside High Point High School in Beltsville. A bystander who had tried to help was wounded.

Two law enforcement officials said Tordil had told his colleagues he had planned to die in a “suicide by cop.” At least one of those individuals said that he wrote a suicide note asking forgiveness for his actions and apologizing to his “brothers in blue.”

BAGHDAD (AP) -- Hundreds of protesters climbed over the blast walls surrounding Baghdad's highly-fortified Green Zone for the first time on Saturday and stormed into parliament, carrying Iraqi flags and chanting against the government.

The breach marked a major escalation in the country's political crisis following months of anti-government protests, sit-ins and demonstrations by supporters of influential Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr. The Green Zone is home to most ministries and foreign embassies and has long been the focus of al-Sadr's criticism of the government.

Earlier Saturday, al-Sadr accused Iraqi politicians of blocking political reforms aimed at combating corruption and waste. While al-Sadr didn't call for an escalation to the protests, shortly after his remarks his supporters began scaling the compound's walls. A group of young men then pulled down a section of concrete blast walls to cheers from the crowd of thousands gathered in the streets outside.

Cellphone video uploaded to social media showed dozens of young men running through the halls of parliament, chanting slogans in support of al-Sadr and calling for the government to disband.

"We are all with you (al-Sadr)," one group of men yelled as the entered the building's main chamber.

Increasingly tense protests and a series of failed reform measures have paralyzed Iraq's government as the country struggles to fight the Islamic State group and respond to an economic crisis sparked in part by a plunge in global oil prices.

A broad-based protest movement last summer mobilized millions and pressured Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi to submit a proposal to reduce the size of the Cabinet and replace political appointees with independent technocrats.

A trembling veteran stood before a judge, ready to turn himself in to serve a night in jail for lying to the court. What that judge did for him that night will remain with that vet the rest of his life.

Judge Lou Olivera presides over the Veterans Treatment Court in Cumberland County, N.C. The Veterans Treatment Court program assigns judges, typically vets themselves, to oversee treatment of veterans caught up in the criminal justice system. The program combines strict treatment with personal accountability, something most veterans understand and respond to.

The goal is to end the merry-go-round of substance abuse, mental health problems and criminal activity.

One veteran whom Olivera’s seen a lot of since the Cumberland County program began is Joe Serna. Serna, a medically retired Special Forces Green Beret, has had a rough time of it since his 2008 return from his fourth tour in Afghanistan. Serna suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after nearly drowning in a submerged truck. The only survivor of that incident, Serna is now understandably afraid of small, tight spaces.

A series of problems sent Serna off-track in his post-military life. After an arrest for drunk driving, one of the conditions of his probation was to avoid alcohol. Serna reported for urinalysis to Judge Olivera’s Veterans Treatment Court every two weeks. Recently, he lied about a urinalysis result, but then came clean to the court.

“I gave Joe a night in jail because he had to be held accountable,” Olivera told CBS News. Olivera came to realize, however, that he couldn’t send Serna there alone.

Serna showed up trembling, fearful due to his PTSD, but ready to do his sentence. Olivera personally drove him to the jail. He decided along the way to do something he’d never done before. He would stay with Serna inside that cell all night.

“I knew what Joe was going through and I knew Joe’s history,” Olivera told CBS News. “And he had to be held accountable — but I just felt I had to go with him. I felt I had to go with him.” Serna, surprised and grateful, spent much of that night talking to the judge.
