Is that boy related to Dick Chaney?

Dick Cheney would never shoot himself. He shot some other guy, and then the victim went on national TV and apologized for having been shot.

This, on the other hand, shows why guns and children do not mix.

While some silly kid shoots himself in the leg, our city council is carefully aiming to shoot itself in the foot.

"This, on the other hand, shows why guns and children do not mix."

And the Cheney incident shows why guns and drunken VPs should't mix.
