they let me and i went back there and you know she was already you know in a coma. for the help of the brain swelling. and so she looked perfect i held her hand and. talked to her but didn't hear me. this is the grandmother of another child zaria go back. both families live in the same area. as daria was shot in the forehead also by another child. and what do the doctors tell you that moment that she was in critical condition that she may not make it that you know the bullet was lodged and they had a lot of brain swelling and that you know they didn't know most likely it would not be good. to compare myself to the.
louisville kentucky is the closest major city to cumberland county. this is where caroline's boxes ambulance was heading when she passed away. there's the emergency room and friends and then of course all the ambulance coming down this way and they will stop right at the door. closer. to resellers is a board member of the co's at children's hospital in louisville every day the hospital is confronted with the downside of mask on possession in the state of kentucky. how many children the year coming to us hospitals that show up every single year in the united states fifteen thousand children come into hospital stay with the young daughters let's start with fifteen thousand children and the adults in the united states with adults it's thirty two thousand people are killed with a gun every single in the united states. amazing amounts incredible and all
preventable what kind of a shock once you get in this hospital because we are a level one trauma center we get the most critical gunshot wounds of all gunshot wounds that happen in the state of kentucky and when we talk about this picture of a child this picture was shot in the middle of the area all the tendons are of balls within the hand area but itself so it's away from the bone so order to reattach to this and make the wound clean again this child would have to be pinned with metal pins if the child could even be saved at that point in time work with this on the beach and base we work with on a daily basis on a daily basis in this hospital to reason her colleagues witness the dark side to the massive possession of weapons in that state to reason six three me critical of the ease with which weapons are dealt with here she's angry that manufacturers use children as
a target audience. they're still learning how to tell time they're still learning how to cut with scissors it's more than strange but when they market guns to children they make them in pastel blue and pretty barbie pink light just like barbie dolls they make them with swirls and then they call them cute little names like crickets and chipmunks just as though if you owned a gun you would belong to a disney club. this is the would family for them shooting is an activity for the whole family including the younger children. one of the six i want her so. but i'm just here so. there's a fair shot at every shot with your you know this whole of would be like very illegal. well in kentucky in the united states it's. part of the way we operate
this is the local shooting range. they show you trust me with this guy trusting. this cable to go to. the free possession of the is enshrined in the us constitution and is inseparable from countryside life here. looking for ways to share with davis money i'm sure would davis nice to meet you yes or needs to go to from the netherlands from where the netherlands the netherlands yes. you have lots of guns we do have lots of guns how many do you typically in stock we've got some more point fifteen hundred two thousand one hundred goes up and down but fifteen hundred a small number for us and how many do something here oh gosh i'd have to look at
the numbers but you're probably looking at seven date that house and. the like that one right there that's definitely pointed towards a lady a lady would buy that farm and that would be her a r fifteen we're husband might on that one right there or something one of their plastic is like a real gun oh yeah most definitely yes i know it looks like a toy gun you know it's there and in the plastic this america well that is just the furniture meaning those are just the excess arrays that you put on a plain black gun like it to make it to doll it up like that and how much it's like a how much the gun like that. dressed up like that one is i have a look at the price tag it is probably about four hundred dollars with a scope there's another paint gun this. for the ladies we carry a huge stock a hand guns every thank you thank god from target guy mr little bitty angle gone
self-defense guns target guns you know we don't have this in the netherlands it's like we don't have weapons store so for us this is not really yes what we all do to protect ourselves nothing. show would davis has weapons of all shapes and sizes from guns to semiautomatic and of kools guns made especially for children. with the. sometimes they'll have a shorter stock to make it easier for their length of pull because their arms are shorter most of the time they'll be lighter because they can't hold up as much here's a very good example why do you even have them in colors like i'm being korean of course paying for the young girl's camel for the future han or this children's gun is marketed as my first rifle it is the same gun that killed caroline spock's yet the state of kentucky support the sale of it. i could lay this gun right here
loaded and i could come back in ten years and i'll guarantee you if nobody picks up that gun it will have not hurt anybody. so you know the gun is simply a tool or a coal oil so you say guns don't kill people guns do not kill people people kill people with five year olds also don't kill people but they get killed book skateboards are you going to outlaw skateboards are you going to confiscate pogo sticks everything require supervision. so jamie you can begin to grow already yeah i hope don't hunger good to see that. i do it i don't do it yeah our boys are you know what. the goods are a typical kentucky family father jamie's
a farmer he has eight hundred dairy cows there's a mill to twenty four hours a day the woods are hard work it's enough good food especially meat. and there's something else they love to. i doing you know you get i hear you soothing goats. we also keep the governor house yes but i see the. gun can these or muzzle loaders and this was a twenty two and two shot. yes shot. what do you give a nation also here. it's like turkey ok shells. we have good looks better because i'm too afraid no guns in your house does the five you know peace in my case looks like yeah which is
a safe why is that what we're. going here. do you trust your children with those weapons you know i mean it's not you know here's a gun go out no it's a tom over time you know and they they have to earn my trust to do those things like you the key that they they know words that today you know when i were small or know that key was put up that keys where they didn't know where it was it was either on my key chain and you know they couldn't get in a gun cabinet this is if it is easy to do you know it's ok. to work i think amy grant willis was. after dinner the children go outside to practice that savors held me in the back yard. probably share each year with the illegal overthrow of the democratically elected government in ukraine the country stands at the abyss politically economically and
even territorially strongly supported by the e.u. and washington the new rulers of my don't perceive as ideological zealots can they reach out to all ukrainians or will they divide the country even more. right from the scene. of. the first street. and i think the church. on our reporters twitter. and instagram. should be in the know. on law.
you're. right you guys to young to own a gun. why not. we're not all prone to you know it's not right. i not afraid of something happens with a gun accident or something. well they miss you have it's not right i think you honestly do need the positive side ever now because you know what is supposed to fly the process out is they large you know i mean this teaches them i'm not saying that they're going to be better than anybody else's children when they grow up but me teaches them a lot of response ability. you know what the gun rights advocates will say you're using this threat of death of caroline sparks to get your own message across i hope
they do say that because it is my methods but it is also the message of the american academy of pediatrics the american academy of pediatricians in the united states in two thousand and twelve a policy statement stating that the only safe home in the united states is a home without a gun and i stand behind that belief. just around the corner from my caroline sparks was shot dead is one of the largest shooting grounds in the united states. as eight thousand the shooting ground is larger than eleven thousand triple pick choose. so this is what we call the point to give you some perspective the most of our property is all north of us and west this is nick noble owner of rock also shooting range despite
the tragic incidents in the neighborhood he still see shooting as an innocent fun. i call golf with a shotgun so you're going from from whole the whole station to station and then scoring and going to the end of the day out there today out. in the shooting club equipped with a restaurant and hotel is a family destination because of the vast size of this it is travel by car between the fifty shooting stations this particular station is a recreation of a town boy village. so this is where the action happens this is it this is one of our many ranges but to be a good place for us to come down and maybe test out a few different types of. nick noble wants to prove that shooting doesn't have to be dangerous. first of all we always keep guns pointed in a safe direction even when it's unloaded we assume that every firearm is loaded until we can prove otherwise when you're handling a firearm you never have that finger on it so it's if you're even taking
a picture and there's an old always well yeah parallel with that and then and then the only time i ever put a finger on the triggers and we're actually engaged in the target and ready to shoot and then i'll actually put my finger on the trigger but any time i pick this up fingers off which are. ok to hit anything yet that is the first time i could understand why children find a use who would give a thrill a bit of adrenaline yes i can understand that yeah is it wise to learn a kid how to shoot when such a tragic accident happens around the corner here there's between two and three hundred million guns the united states so you can act like they're not here and keep kids away from them and i think that's when i when i believe that it's my personal opinion that when kids become curious about what they don't know is when the accidents happen is so different than putting a child
a sixteen year old child in a vehicle with no training on an interstate says this is how you feel with guns that it you have to train. but i thought you know if she even led that she would be brain damaged in making squid even see kids you know that your eye is right there and i just feel so worried that she would never be normal again or in a coma forever are bats the ball. for azhar his grandmother children and weapons should never be combined. granddaughter was in a coma for two weeks with a bullet lodged in her brain. it's a new it is obviously. the by. well it's still in the head it's too difficult to remove. much of anything much she needs in the life of any seven year old. charlie charlie and. what are the chances that it will survive something like that
well one of the million and the doctors say that the baby never seen nothing like this before so they called the miracle baby. schools sat. down with a child a high school and writes around. and they hit you. what it was if you hit your with a cold it's sad a seeing a little bit of your head yes. i would have got to say you were lucky a little bit. and the cost. to wear go girl. because of the accident bizarre his parents lost their rides to parental care how grandmother now has full custody. together they visit the hospital where as aria
was treated. he looks crazy its. own luck as a whole one. can't believe his looks to. have healed up really nice you can't even hardly tell it was their looks just like a little scrape now. they're getting squire good sense for him every day to keep the sky oh that's fantastic they've taught you well you can't even tell. i've done this for thirty years and there are children that you always remember they just stick in your head and i have my special words and she's one of the special ones you remember and seeing are not all she's fabulous. absolutely fabulous and this is the recovery that you always hope for a small miracle a small miracle definitely something that your human still good. makes me know that
what i'm here for is worthwhile. makes me know that what i do is good. the figures are truly shocking more than fifteen thousand children each year abroad to hospitals across america with gunshot wounds and eight children die every day because of the consequences. mr hill it's a cruel ruin the gun from that's public television i left a couple of messages i think six or seven attempts to speak with someone from the gun lobby on successful and the secretary admits that due to the death of caroline spokes this is not a popular topic of conversation for the arms manufacturers. caroline sparks is buried here on the outskirts of cumberland county she her brother and mother regularly visit a gas station nearby which also serves as
a convenience store in your absence you know she's been on. our just about an average of almost lost weight you know ever since men like her mom said there's a bear or second grandmother who had a second grandmother so you must be heard when you heard the news yes really heard about it that i heard about it. and so this small village is now a symbol for the gun debate throughout the united states president obama once stricter gun control but is met with resistance from the countryside even in the village of caroline sparks. take in the right so i don't buy if you ever do it. so even after the tragedy when i have to that directly about you still believe it or you know that you have the children yeah yeah me it's not the protect you say so so you say this gun for five six seven year olds is safe gun you even go if
supervision your own grandchildren you would give the great irony that many pictures with their with me one day i hope to feel look back at these pictures of robert ray i'm very good. with alex and t.j. owning and shooting guns from the young ages of twelve and seven the woods will continue to consider shooting a family activity oh rather than spending saturdays playing football they go to the shooting range. why do you like shooting so much. stress. shooting helps the roof stress you know. and i'm sure afraid something happens a children every day and us die because of shots aren't you afraid it happens to you why not because what it would be made to shoot so.
and someone else who is trying to or. when you think it's innocent when you with kids involved you think there's not a bullet in there you think it's just like you think everything's safe but it's not guns are never say. and because of that there's a family that's very sad always mr daughter and i'm very blessed that we have you with us. at some kids were there never taught the difference between i am in a real gun i think that's where some of the accidents come into play i mean you were talking about the incident in cumberland county how do you know that child wasn't thinking that that gun was just a ploy again. if you look at this in front above the infant's right ear is a gunshot wound close to the head in the temple area unfortunately this is one of
the children but did not make it we were unable to revive this child this is the gun debate through the eyes of children and since the gun debate through the eyes of children this is the through the eyes of parents parks if we can do it for our children for our future what is the country to savor. interview. of the.

be completely an economical and environmental disaster but they're going to do it here anyway because why nobody in the media here except for maybe george will be up over there to garden will say anything about the fact that this is an ecological disaster and more importantly an economic gloom doggle that will increase britain's debt to even higher than it is right now the highest it's been a decade. a
