Today's Tales from Gun Nutty USA

I usually present my own picks here but Joe Nocera at NYT (with help from aides) always has a fuller report.  Some highlights from his choices today:
A 6-year-old boy accidentally shot himself in the stomach in Amarillo, Tex., Saturday night. Police report the child found a handgun that had been hidden by the homeowner.
A 13-month-old child remains hospitalized and her father is behind bars after the girl was shot in the chest at an apartment complex in Tullahoma, Tenn., Sunday evening. The child’s father, 26-year-old Kevin Sayre, was taking apart a handgun when a 9mm round was discharged, striking the victim in the chest. 
Aurora, Colo., police are investigating an accidental shooting in the parking lot of Rangeview High School that left one student injured Monday. The student was getting a ride home from a school employee who also works a second job as an armed security officer, and as the employee was trying to put his gun into the glove box of the car, the weapon fired, hitting the student in the leg.
