    This is the guy who stood on the Senate floor for 13 ****ing hours to demand proof from the Justice Department that the government could do no such thing. In the end the Senate voted unanimously to end debate as soon as he left to take a piss.

    From what I recall, it wasn't like that at all. He stood on the floor for 13 hours to demand an answer as to whether the government could just randomly kill an innocent US citizen and get away with it.

    I assume Rand Paul had never got an answer to that question because it was so ****ing stupid it never deserved one.

    5-year-old Kentucky boy fatally shoots 2-year-old sister - CNN.com

    A Kentucky mother stepped outside of her home just for a few minutes, but it was long enough for her 5-year-old son to accidentally shoot and kill his 2-year-old sister with the .22-caliber rifle he got for his birthday, state officials said.

    Riddle said she is devastated, but comforted knowing that her granddaughter is in a better place.

    "It was God's will. It was her time to go, I guess," she told WLEX. "I just know she's in heaven right now and I know she's in good hands with the Lord."
    Oh that wacky god! Such a wicked prankster!

    Accidental gun deaths are relatively rare. In 2009 we hit an all time low at just over 550. For kids specifically over the course of an entire decade the number was just over 700, and the injury rate overall is about one in one million.

    Well, there are 300 million guns in the US. 550 is pretty remarkable. No matter what laws you pass, nothing is going to touch that number of guns without an amendment.
