I just ran across an article about a 9-year-old boy in Arizona who was digging for worms and instead came across a .38-caliber revolver and a bullet buried in a plastic bag. Given this, I’m going to have to ask everyone to please stop burying their guns in random spots. You are preventing children from fishing.
Granted, the article doesn’t specifically mention that the boy was digging for worms to go fishing. However, I don’t want to even imagine why else he would have wanted worms other than he planned to use the worms to go fishing.
Regardless, since he found the gun instead of worms and apparently immediately told the police, I’m betting he didn’t get to go fishing. For one thing, he probably stopped digging when he found the gun. For another, I’m betting all the police and such kept the boy around the area until way after it was too late for the boy to still go fishing.
Is this what you really want? To stop young children from fishing? That isn’t right. Don’t stop children from fishing.
People, please…be more careful with your damn guns.
