“Didn’t Know It Was Loaded.”

The Gazette
July 10, 1901

The ten-year-old son of Mr. J. W. Stancil carelessly pointed a shotgun at Mr. Fowler’s two little girls Monday, saying, “I’m going to shoot you.” The gun discharged, and the load passed between the children who were standing about three feet apart. Luckily nobody was hurt; but this instance should be a warning to all parents to keep loaded weapons out of the reach of the children. Of course the boy “didn’t know it was loaded.”
