It seems that Spiderman is in a spot of trouble, tangled in a web of his own making.

postheadericon Family Argument Escalates, Two Sons Shot By Stepfather

BRADENTON, FL — A 12-year-old boy was accidentally shot as the result of his stepfather and his brother engaging each other in a firefight earlier this month.

As the Herald-Tribune reports:

Bradenton Police said Joshua Rappola, 36, of Bradenton identified himself to investigators as the shooter. Police identified the 19-year-old man as Rufus Adams of Bradenton.

Charges have not yet been filed in the case.

Bradenton Police received a call about a shooting inside a home in the 1900 block of Sixth Avenue East in Bradenton around 11:30 a.m. Officers found two victims in the home, ages 12 and 19, with gunshot wounds.

The 12-year-old had a gunshot wound to his lower body and was taken to Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg. His condition was not immediately known. Adams was taken to Blake Medical Center for treatment. His condition also was not immediately known.

According to police, the incident started with a verbal confrontation between Rappola and Adams inside the home. Adams allegedly armed himself with a gun and the stepfather armed himself with a handgun. Rappola fired shots in the direction of Adams that struck the 12-year-old boy.

Once again, we see two things that are troublesome in the gun community: family violence and remembering the basics.

Family violence is something that occurs too often in Concealed Nation stories and in America today.

And here we see a fundamental lack of the basics — if the step-father knew what his firearm was pointed at, there would not have been a gravely injured preteen, and that’s a fact.

Shameful.

postheadericon Resident Shoots And Kills Alleged Intruder

BAXTER COUNTY, AR — A man was shot and killed after allegedly trying to break into a relative’s home, The Baxter Bulletin reports.

Paul James Assaf was shot early this month and killed at the scene, and his body has been taken to a crime lab for analysis. Both state and local police are involved in the investigation.

However, other than that, a lot of this case is a mystery. The Baxter Bulletin did not report whether or not the homeowner was aware of the identity of the home invader, and there is no mention of how the two individuals were related.

Regardless of the details, this break-in gives us two separate reminders in responsible carry:

  1. Family violence is tragic, but it does happen. Please take care to look after you and your loved ones’ safety.
  2. Always, always, always carry at home.

Stay safe out there, folks.
