    @OK. it is possible for someonen to get shot in the head and not be seriously injuried. there is a GOD. God will allow whatever he wants to happen to us. God is our protector and God protected him from not dying. It is possible for him to not be "that Hurt". It is a blessing from God for him to still be alive. Lets recognize God in situations that occur and thank God for being our Keeper and Protector. I know he is my keeper and protector, and so much more.

    Have a brick veneer home now. My next home probably will not. My relatively decent Jacksonville neighborhood is going downhill too fast for me. Maybe my next home will have some brick around the bedroom too.

    Don't understand. It is not carelessness it is stupidity ! And a famous person once said "you can't fix stupid " Stupid people with guns and people that are not even suppose to have a gun are the biggest offenders. These rubes think a gun makes them tough. They don't think past the pulling of the trigger. Then while they spend years in prison for using a gun it might dawn on them that what they did was wrong but I doubt it.

    Its getting worse out there folks. I can't even begin to understand how careless people are with others safety and well being. Shooting a gun in a neighborhood. Unbelievable. We need stricter crimes for stupid people. This whole country is heading in a bad direction and I just wish I would have been born 50 years ago and been able to experience the good days.

    Thank the good Lord he wasn't hurt! Not even safe in your own bed anymore. Very sad. Pray for his continual healing.
