HARRIS COUNTY, Texas – A 5-year-old boy shot and critically injured his 6-year-old brother at their home in east Harris County, deputies said Monday.

Relatives say the young brothers loved to play cops and robbers.

“He may have picked up the wrong weapon thinking that it was a toy,” said Thomas Gray, an uncle. “But this weapon was not a toy and it was a real gun and he actually pointed it at my other nephew and fired it.”

Guess they had a bunch of guns laying around and the boy accidentally picked it up and shot his brother. It could have happened to anyone!

The boy received a .22 caliber rifle for his birthday and shot his sister, Caroline Sparks, while playing with the gun.

“It was God’s will. It was her time to go, I guess,” the grandmother told WLEX. “I just know she’s in heaven right now and I know she’s in good hands with the Lord.”

Apparently, God wanted the little girl dead. What an ass.

Joni Ernst tells people to use guns against the police

Joni Ernst recently said in a campaign speech: “I do believe in the right to carry, and I believe in the right to defend myself and my family with guns — whether it’s from an intruder, or whether it’s from the government, should they decide that my rights are no longer important.”

News media outlets recently have been reporting outrageous cases of police brutality, murders, and other violations of people’s rights. The police represents the government. Therefore, according to Joni Ernst, people should take up arms and fight back against the police.
