A 6-year-old girl remains in critical condition after accidentally being shot by her 8-year-old brother at their grandparents’ home in Tallmadge Township, Michigan. Authorities have released tapes of the 911 call
“I have a gun shot wound at 2036…” Steve Larson, the kids’ grandfather, told authorities over the phone as he struggled to stay calm and get help for his granddaughter Zara. Larson says he was outside his home when the shooting occurred.

Dispatcher – “Tell me what happened.”
Larson – “I don’t know.”
Dispatcher – “Was she shot?”
Larson – “Yes.”

The convention runs May 16-18.
Louisville is within driving distance for Murdoc, and this is just yet another reason for me to attend the convention. A number of gun bloggers are already planning to be there.
