Moms Demand Liz Hjelmseth

There are currently no criminal penalties when an adult allows a child access to a firearm.
“My brother shot me when I was 8 years old,” said Liz Hjelmseth who was among the members of the gun safety group Moms Demand Action who went to the state capitol to present more than 10,000 signatures on petitions to lawmakers.
She wants criminal penalties when adults fail to keep guns out of the hands of kids.
“It’s a weapon, it only has one use. It’s to kill and children just shouldn’t have to make those kinds of decisions,” she said.

So, Ms. Hjelmseth wants parents incarcerated in case they leave guns where kids can get to them, right? Now, I kinda figure that her parents (if still alive) would not be subject to this law a posteriori but, they can always be sued for being incompetent and inflicting pain and suffering to Ms. Hjelmseth to this day.

So, dear Ms. Hjelmseth: prove you are not just blowing smoke up our rear ends and are a true believer in your cause: Sue your parents.

That is all.

  1. Though no supporter of the “Mom’s Demand” cult, in this case I agree with her. Adults have to be responsible for their actions. Guns belong on your person or in a safe. And lost or stolen firearms should be reported.

      1. Of course one law ist helping!
        First, they say that you have to put your guns in a safe.
        Then, they demand that you let officials on your property so they can check if your guns are in a safe. You don’t want to let them on your property? Well, this is a reason to get youre license revoked! Simple as that.
        And FYI: When the key to your safe is still within reach of somebody who shouldn’t have access to your guns (or if said person simply KNOWS where the key is) you can and will be screwed because you, Sir, are a criminal 😉

  2. What did her brother know when she was only eight that we may only be finding out now?

    I assume no charges were pursued and that Ms. Hjelmseth may find this page and provide the answer.

  3. I am Ms. Hjelmseth. Here is a little nugget you are all forgetting. People follow laws. So if there had been a law my parents would have followed it and I would not have been shot. This is why laws are not retroactive because people have to have a chance to follow it. So no, I will not be taking my parents to court.

    1. “People follow laws”.

      Please demonstrate. Walk through downtown Detroit after dark. There’s laws against every bad thing that might happen to you after all.

      Ok, that’s great. We no longer need police, the penal code, prisons, criminal courts, prosecutors, judges, etc. All things that are currently illegal cannot and will not ever happen again; they are illegal and people follow laws.

      I’m sorry to hear that your parents were irresponsible, and I’m sorry that you were shot. I’m glad you survived. However that doesn’t give you carte blanche to legislate and moralize about what other people do.

  4. “People follow laws”.
    Like the anointed selection for Presidential Candidate by Moms Demand, Hillary Clinton?
    Like all the killers that have gone inside Gun Free Zones and massacred people?
    Please….
