An 11 year old was killed in St. Petersburg, Florida after being shot by his 14 year old brother with a stolen gun while the two boys and their 13 year old sister were home alone.

The gun had been reported stolen from a car less than 48 hours before the shooting. Amir’s 14-year-old brother told detectives he found the gun in a nearby alley, and said the family didn’t know it was in the home.

Sure- he “found” it. I will bet you that the kid is the one who stole it. A kid uses a stolen gun to shoot and kill his younger brother, and the people who get blamed are honest gun owners, specifically the one whose gun was stolen.

“It’s easy access for them to get the guns and that’s not good, and like I was telling them before, me and some friends of mine, we’re in the process of trying to get a program together, a youth program together, to guide these youth and do some sort of prevention stuff, because when it gets to this point, it’s too late. You got a family grieving, got an 11-year-old gone,” Walls said. “He was a good kid and at this point, it’s too late.”

Kovacsev said the teen will not likely be charged 

Last year, 251 guns were reported stolen in St. Pete and 173 of them were taken from cars. Don’t leave a gun in your car. That is where it is more likely to be stolen than anywhere else. If you have kids in the house, don’t leave it unsecured at home. Lock that shit up when you aren’t home. Be a responsible gun owner.

A side note. What’s up with the names?

Yeah, those are foine Irish names. Amir, Da Mari, Zy Cariyah.

Are we really going to pretend this isn’t a standard case of junior hoodboogers on your average Tuesday?

AAannnddd…..they are Black. So naturally, no one is at fault except the gun.

“I’ll just be blunt,” St. Pete Police Assistant Chief Michael Kovacsev said. “This is a community tragedy. We have an 11-year-old child who sustained a gunshot wound and is deceased inside the residence at home with two siblings. Access to firearms is something that we have been going over and over again in this police department for the last couple of years, and it continues to be a problem.”

No, ACCESS to a gun isn’t the problem. It’s raising children with no values, no respect for other people, their possessions, or any authority. It’s baby-mama’s and baby-daddy’s having no feeling of love or responsibility for a child, nor any need to consider that child’s future. It’s a government willing to give money to continue to pop out more wealth inducing garbage while blowing funds on state of the art cell phones and weird manicures.
Tribe up my white friends cuz it will not be getting better.

One time a bud told me about one he threw out along a major street but I didn’t get over there in time.
The Bolsheviks will be going after the weapons by any means necessary because the White Russians are holding up the glorious pronoun utopia so look for more of these stories.
Remember the great Gary Webb and the trainloads of weapons rolling through Compton?
That train that was raided in the third world turd CA early in the Brandon reign of error was chock full of weed.

this is something I do not understand. as car lock boxes are cheap like under 100 bucks.
most kids will not spend the time and effort to cut or break the cable. but stuck in your glove box ? easy picking for any kid. I don’t go to a lot of places anymore where I can not carry.
just not worth it. hell, even the cops at the court house told me to use one of their lock boxes
instead of going back to my truck. then stepped into the metal screen and forget my flashlight and pocket knife ! anyway, things have sure changed since I was a kid. at grandpa’s house.
everyone knew where the rifles and shotgun where. you didn’t touch them unless told to
mom kept a 38 Smith in her sewing room, again. we all knew it was there. you just didn’t touch the weapons. until we start teaching the kids about weapons/guns they will always try to handle or play with one. taught all of my kids about weapons and they know where they where stored. they also knew not to touch them unless there was a damn good reason too.

By the names, this was clearly a nice Irish family. Or perhaps Canadian.

IcyReaper · April 28, 2024 at 12:12 pm

I just don’t get the names and spelling at all. Are they just stupid and cant spell or is there some national contest on the most fucked up names you can dream up, maybe you get a lifetime supply of purple drank??
Anyway once the muzzies win, my personal choice just for entertainment value of watching the woke and gays (we fight for Palestine) fly off the roof tops, everyone’s name will be Mohamed and if you fuck it up by misspelling it, off goes your head.

I wonder why the gun owner left his gun in the car?

“Don’t leave a gun in your car. That is where it is more likely to be stolen than anywhere else.”

Another form of: “You weren’t wearing your Burkha so it’s your fault you got raped.”

Basically, if I need to enter a “gun free zone” at any point during my errands for the day, your contention is that I must abstain from being properly equipped for self defense for the entire day?

I think not.

Until “gun free zones” are eliminated and I can lawfully carry in any venue I visit, I’ll be leaving my gun in my car whenever I need to do so to avoid becoming an instant felon. If that means my gun is stolen at some point – please don’t blame me for being law abiding, thank you very much.

And yes, I do have a lockbox in my vehicle in which I secure my firearm…which will slow an experienced thief down by about 20 seconds or so.

    Not BLAMING the victim, but some things just aren’t a good idea. In a just world filled with honest people, I wouldn’t need a lock on my door, a password for my bank account, or an ignition key to start my car. I would never need to carry a gun, and I could leave wads of cash on my front porch without worrying about losing it.
    But that isn’t the world we live in. So we lock our doors, have strong passwords, and carry a gun. Not because a theft would be our fault, but because we aren’t dumbasses.

      Sailorcurt · April 29, 2024 at 3:11 pm

      Glad to hear you’re not blaming the victim. Sometimes we have no choice but to do things that put us at heightened risk…like leave the gun in the car when going into a post office or government office. Doesn’t make us dumbasses…just subject to the stupid laws passed by people who care more about being seen to be “doing something” than whether that something has undesirable consequences.

      Besides the fact that taking the “standard” precautions won’t stop a determined thief and won’t even slow them down much if they’re competent at their chosen profession.

      Keys and locks and lockboxes and combinations “keep honest people honest”, they don’t stop criminals from plying their trade.

      My house got robbed when my wife and I went on vacation several years ago. Doors were locked and deadbolted. Had someone who lived nearby stopping in twice a day to feed the dogs. Guns were in a safe.

      Didn’t matter. When our house watcher showed up to feed the dogs, the house was trashed. Luckily, they didn’t hurt the dogs, just locked them in the garage. They basically destroyed the gun safe to get it open, but get it open they did, and stole everything including antiques and heirlooms…luckily I had several of my modern firearms with me at the time so they mainly got collectors items and historical pieces, with a couple of exceptions.

      At any rate, all the standard precautions were for naught. Now I have an alarm system and cameras, but I hold no illusions…if they want to rob me again, those won’t stop them either.

      Incidentally, just last year, one of the heirloom pieces with immense sentimental value to me was recovered. An 1878 Colt Double Action Frontier model in .45lc that belonged to my grandfather, then my father and finally passed to me. The thieves had disassembled it, bunged it up pretty good trying to get the one reverse threaded screw out and a couple of pieces were missing, but I’ve pieced it back together from parts acquired from collectors and gunsmiths. That was one of the pieces that it really hurt me to lose so I was euphoric when the police called to tell me they’d found it in an abandoned storage locker.

I just clicked through and read the linked article.

Does anyone else find it significant that the picture of the victim “Amir” depicts him throwing a gang sign?
