Published

A 46-year-old man in Davidson County, North Carolina was shot in the neck on Thursday when his 3-year-old grandson found and fired an unsecured weapon.

Davidson County Sheriff’s Department officials told WXII Channel 12 that they received a 911 call just after 7 p.m. Thursday reporting that Nicholas Cardillo, 46, had been shot by his toddler grandson.

Paramedics transported Cardillo to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, where his injury was treated and found to be non-life-threatening.

Cardillo told police that he was in the shower when he heard a noise and emerged to find the boy holding a .380-caliber pistol. He reportedly told the boy to set the weapon down, but it went off.

Police are investigating the incident. Cardillo said that he had set the gun down when he took off his clothes to shower. He removed the magazine from the pistol, but neglected to clear the bullet in the firing chamber.

According to Bloomberg News, the Center for American Progress and the CDC, Americans are now more likely to die from gunshot injuries than in auto accidents.

As cars and driving become safer and safer, the NRA and other pro-gun groups are obstructing any new restrictions on firearms ownership or requirements for safety devices that would make guns less dangerous. As a result, the number of deaths in road accidents continues to steadily decline as the number of gun fatalities inches upward.

‘Vladimir Putin has something on Donald Trump’: Ambassador Sherman says the Kremlin must have kompromat

Published

Former Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman concluded on Monday that Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin must have "something" on President Donald Trump.

"The latest reporting from The New York Times indicates that the thousands of troops that we have there, that the president moved, are now trapped. They don’t have an actual way out since Turkey has cut off the roads and the exit routes that they might use and so now there is the question of will there be an airlift? How will we get the U.S. troops out?" MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell asked.

"We haven’t had to get troops out like this since the fall of Saigon," Sherman replied. "This is going to be very, very difficult."
