Multiple Children Were Just Shot At A Daycare By A Toddler
The dangers of America’s reckless relationship with firearms made itself very clear on Wednesday when a toddler at a home day-care facility discovered a gun and shot two other toddlers with it.
The children, both aged three, have been hospitalized in “serious but stable” condition after the toddler-on-toddler shooting in Dearborn, Michigan.
537 children under the age of eleven have been killed or injured by gun violence in the United States this year alone, according to Gun Violence.org.
But far from taking any actions to address the epidemic of gun violence in the United States and the reckless proliferation of deadly firearms to an astonishingly irresponsible civilian populace, the Trump administration has taken it upon themselves to help make it easier for people to get their hands on deadly weapons.
It’s astonishing to see how incidents can happen week in and week out and the nation merely shrugs and moves on. Schools, daycare centers, movie theaters, workplaces – far from keeping us safer, there’s now nowhere we can go without the ominous threat of a shooting occurring at any moment.
