State police say 12-old-twins were playing with guns at their central Pennsylvania house while their parents were away when one of guns went off, critically injuring one of the boys. The shooting occurred just before 6 p.m. Saturday in East Hanover Township. State police say the twins were apparently playing with a .45-caliber semiautomatic pistol and a 357 magnum revolver when the pistol went off and hit one of the boys. The uninjured twin called 911. Emergency responders transported the injured boy to Hershey Medical Center, where he is listed in critical condition.
Remember though, guns don’t kill or maim- it’s the bullets hurled from them by the unthinking, cruel, and careless that do… aided and abetted by the indifferent and the unconcerned and those who believe anyone has the right to keep them laying around their house loaded and easily available.
