15 year old shot to death for egging a car in LR

2 updates, scroll down

KTHV and others reporting a young lady, 15, shot over the weekend as she and friends were egging another young man's car -- apparently a back-and-forth among friends after the young man had egged back in Haloween. 

The young man's father, 48, opened fire on the car in which the young lady was riding, killing her. 

And yeah yeah "guns kill people" and all, but really, it's at the point where guns for all means stupid people have guns, and now we have a dead 15 year old. 

 UPDATE: Feb. 19. 

CBS is reporting the shooter, Willie Noble, "was just trying to scare" when he shot the young lady in the head, quoting the police report. "He saw his car was vandalized and waited for the teens," also quotedSo, in this case we have a pesumably responsible gun owner ('Murica) shooting at nothing, and missing -- instead putting a bullet through the skull of a 15 year old. At nothing.

Missing. 

Nothing. He missed nothing. 

Again, stupid people have guns, this due to overly-lax gun control.  

UPDATE Feb 21

Here it is Friday after first posting this on Monday. Since Monday over 100 comments. 

What's striking is the "protect our guns" crowd is not appalled at a 15 year old getting shot for egging a car -- or at the least apparently having greater interest in tangental issues. I mean, yeah, politics Internets blah blah, but a 15 year old unarmed girl is dead and a significant response metric is fear of gun restrictions. 

15 years old

Which begs an interesting point: Guns good because (something) safety (something) rights (something) founding fathers. Got it. But this is so important, so dear, that any humanity is lost in the interest of justifying those rights.Which is to say for the protection of humanity, humanity is rejected. I find that odd.

Eggs kill people

Guns don't kill people. Eggs kill people. I'm sure he saw the barrel of the egg and had to stand his ground.

He was either angry or frightened and acted on impulse. If he wouldn't have had a gun to grab for this girl would be alive. I expect we will find that this man had no previous record. Now one life is snuffed out and another is ruined needlessly.

I'll just wait for the barrage of comments from the conceal and carry, open carry and carry carry carry crowd trying to justify this.

My comment

Is that it's horrible that the death of a child is turned into a political football

Standard NRA position

The NRA said the same thing after Aurora, after Newtown, after every major tragedy. If we can't discuss it now, when will we be able to discuss it? Because we are never far from a similar tragedy.

The pro-gun argument is either:
1) This is not the time to discuss it,
2) What the shooter did was wrong and he will be punished (but it is never ever about the gun and we can't even consider that), or
3) The shooter was somehow, some way justified. (That would be hard to argue in this case but was certainly used for George Zimmerman.)

Dumb A$$

He was arrested. NRA did not as far as I know strep in to take up the cause.

I said none of the three

But where was the commentary here when a eight year old boy was killed in Boston last year with a pressure cooker and nails?

Or the woman that stabbed her own granddaughter to death before setting the house aflame?

The "outrage" over guns is pure politics.

Violence is violence... and only worrying about the method is asinine.

So what you're saying is...

1) It's not the time to discuss this, and 2) it's anything except the gun. I'll wait to see if you can figure out how to work in #3.

Look

I get it, you're anti gun and I suppose I am pro gun since it is apropos to label people on the polar opposite of issues.

Maybe a picture will explain it better

But......

Not everybody could beat, strangle or stab someone to death. A gun is design to make it quick and easy, even a small child could do it.

Thanks arkansan

I was going to make the same point. If the circumstances were the same, and this man had a club or a knife, or if he wished to use his bare hands, we would not have a dead child.

Now I see some are moving on to #3 of my list. It's not about the gun; it is about teenagers being out after curfew. KATV has done a story to that effect, interviewing police about enforcing the curfew law, etc. Friends and neighbors are beginning to comment on the shooter, saying what a good man he is and how he would never want to harm anyone. I believe them. The one thing in that whole sequence of events we can never consider is the gun. Because it's never about the gun.

So...

People don't kill others with a club, or knife, or their bare hands? Only guns?

Statistics aren't your friend, are they?
