    The only time it's good when there is a ND is when a criminal gives their location up

    Bismarck Tribune is reporting:

    PITTSBURGH - A 17-year-old boy accidentally shot himself in the leg while standing in line at a McDonald's restaurant and now he faces an illegal weapons charge.

    The boy was fiddling with the .25-caliber pistol tucked in his waistband when it fired, wounding him in the upper thigh shortly before 9 p.m. Wednesday, city police Sgt. William Gorman said.

    "Some days you deal with a victim, some days you deal with an actor," Gorman said. "But it's a strange day when the actor is the victim."

    The boy was in good condition at Mercy Hospital. He was to be charged with illegal possession of a firearm, because he is not old enough to lawfully have a gun, police said.

    Police were also trying to determine if the gun was stolen.

    The boy was not identified because he is a juvenile. No one else was hurt.

    A service of the Associated Press(AP)
    "[T]he people are not to be disarmed of their weapons.
    They are left in full possession of them."

    Zacharia Johnson (speech in the Virginia Ratifying Convention,25 June 1778)"The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed." ~Alexander Hamilton

    One should never play with a gun especially one should never play with the go bang switch.
    One should never confuse good fortune with good training.

    I don't think of a 17 year-old as a "boy" especially when he is armed.
    Sometimes I wonder who the old man in the mirror is....

    Lord, Grant me a good sword and no need to use it.

    Stupid kid shot himself. (That might have made a good headline...)
    I don't think "boy" is the best way to put it, but he probably doesn't deserve "young man" or "man". I think kid is a good word for him.
