For a number of years I wrote frequently on Sparrow Chat about the farce that is the National Rifle Association, and its inept and wantonly untruthful slogan: “Guns Save Lives”.
From the website of WAND TV, a local station serving the town of Decatur in Central Illinois:
DECATUR, IL- A Decatur couple arrested in connection with last weekend’s stray bullet shooting death of a Decatur man went before a judge for the first time Friday morning
Quincy Houston, 27, did not enter a plea on involuntary manslaughter charges. He was appointed a public defender.
His wife, 22 year-old Mattisha Houston, entered a not guilty plea on the same manslaughter charges.
Police say the couple was shooting a pistol at a tree in their back yard early last Saturday morning.
One shot missed and the bullet went through the apartment window of 30 year-old Joseph Wells, hitting him in the head and killing him.”
I thank the gods I don’t live in that hellhole of a town anymore.
One day I will write more about Decatur, Illinois. The town that is owned by the Archer Daniel Midland Corporation.
Right now, I’m just so glad to be out of it.
