    Another Newspaper Report Only Re-Posted to Cause Controversy and Not Be Constructive

    Turangi teen shot by 11-year-old cousin

    Turangi teen shot by 11-year-old cousin - National - NZ Herald News

    Police say it is "sheer luck" that no one was killed after a 13-year-old Turangi boy was shot in the shoulder by his 11-year-old cousin at a property near Turangi in the early hours on Saturday.

    The teenager was rushed to Waikato Hospital with moderate injuries and is reported to be in a stable condition.

    Detective Roger Whale said initial inquiries indicated the boy was shot at a rural address at Korohe, north of Turangi, where family members were present.

    The injured boy was taken back to a Turangi address where the alarm was raised. Whale said it appeared the children gained access to a loaded .22 calibre rifle and it was "sheer luck" that no one was killed.

    Police have spoken to the boys to determine how the firearm came into their possession.
    Whale is warning that adults should be storing firearms and ammunition safely.

    "Firearms should only be loaded when they are ready to be fired," he said.

    Police would like to hear from anyone with information about the Korohe incident.

    It is not known whether any charges will be laid.

    Rule 4. Identify your target beyond all doubt.

    Not good at all. Shouldn't have happened. I hope the young fellah has a speedy recovery. Surely it is naive to say it is not known whether any charges will be laid.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms
