    Default Angry Ohio boy, 4, shoots baby sitter

    JACKSON, Ohio Police say an angry 4-year-old Ohio boy grabbed a gun from a closet and shot his baby sitter.

    Eighteen-year-old Nathan Beavers was hospitalized Sunday with minor wounds to his arm and side after the shotgun attack. Police say another teen was also injured.

    Witnesses told police the child was angry because Beavers accidentally stepped on his foot. Beavers was watching the child at a mobile home in Jackson with several other teenagers and several other children.

    Jackson County Sheriff John Shashteen says authorities are investigating. The child has not been charged.

    That's normal for most American kids to start practicing with their guns around that age.....He's just gotta practice on the oil cans and bottles Dad put on the fence for him...

    They should shoot the owner of the gun in the foot for leaving it unsecured and loaded. People are so stupid and irresponsible it's disgusting.

    The child has not been charged.

    I don't know why, but this makes me laugh. The bizarreness of that whole situation, and then they word it that way.

    what "most americans" do you speak of? I honestly have never met ANYONE that started shooting a rifle at anything at the age of four. Perhaps in the hills of kentucky but the most I've ever heard of would be 8-9 year olds getting a pellet gun or something. US citizens love their guns, I'll grant you that, but 4 year olds with full on rifles? I think that's a bit of a stretch.

    yeah I really liked that quote too! I love that we live in a culture that phrases like that are necessary in order to clear up any confusion. We do have a rather fair number of kids, under 10, popping people off. I heard something on the way to work today that some kid blew his dad away with a handgun because he felt he'd been spanked too much and was simply not going to take it any longer. He was 8. These people weren't hillbillies though, they were of the "urban" persuasion.
