What better way to celebrate our nation's birth than through the exercise of our 2nd Amendment rights?
A 7-year-old boy was seriously wounded Thursday at a Fourth of July celebration in Virginia after someone evidently fired a gun in the air.
Police said that the boy was walking with his father near Swift Creek Reservoir in Chesterfield County, Va., where spectators had gathered for a fireworks display, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch. The boy suddenly fell to the ground and began bleeding from the top of his head, an accident that police said was "a result of someone shooting randomly into the air, likely from a distance, and not an intentional act."
It was an "accident." Oh. Well then. Never mind.
