A 19-year-old woman accidentally shot dead her brother while posing with a gun for Facebook photos on New Year´s Eve. Manuel Ortiz died instantly after being shot in the head at about 6am on Monday morning. Family and friends wept as his body was carried from his apartment in Phoenix, Arizona, where the shooting took place. Police said 22-year-old Ortiz and his sister Savannah Ramirez arrived back at the home they shared on New Year’s Eve after spending the night drinking. They were with two other people when someone in the group pulled out the handgun to take photos with it.

To "shoot dead" someone is a Brit construction. Move past it to the story.

Drunks should not be playing with loaded guns.

In times gone by, stupidity, ignorance, outlawry, and insanity were rewarded with early death. Now, our safety net is so thick that natural selection has been subverted, except in this particular case. Chainsaws make better toys than guns in the hands of drunks.

Put a gun in the hands of someone who isn´t used to handling them, and their finger will IMMEDIATELY go to the trigger. Further, the only responsible way to hand a gun to someone is with the magazine removed and the chamber open to show it is not loaded AFTER sticking your finger in the chamber and the barrel to confirm your visual inspection. Alcohol, loaded weapons, inexperienced users....whoever owned that weapon and allowed it to be passed around has at lot to answer for.

Before the trolls jump in, note that they bore the price for their own irresponsibility. None of my guns were involved, so banning them wont help.

On Sunday December 17, 2012, 2 days after the CT shooting, a man went to a
restaurant in San Antonio to kill his X-girlfriend. After he shot her, most of
the people in the restaurant fled next door to a theater. The gunman followed
them and entered the theater so he could shoot more people. He started shooting
and people in the theater started running and screaming. It’s like the Aurora,
CO theater story plus a restaurant!

Now aren’t you wondering why this wasn’t a lead story in the national media
along with the school shooting?

There was an off duty county deputy at the theater. SHE pulled out her gun and
shot the man 4 times before he had a chance to kill anyone. So since this story
makes the point that the best thing to stop a bad person with a gun is a good
person with a gun, the media is treating it like it never happened.

Rules for gun handlers number 1 through number 10. Never ever ever handle a gun while or after drinking. Rule #11, never ever ever put your finger on the trigger unless you intend to immediately shoot the gun. Rules #12 through #20, never ever ever aim a gun at anyone unless you INTEND to shoot them. See, twenty simple rules that any responsible gun owner knows and follows and that this idiot failed to follow.

Where is the mother saying, "they are such nice kids. He was my baby!"(Not much point in asking about the father). Well, we know they are/were stupid kids. They are the welfare culture we are producing. We´re just lucky in this instance they killed each other instead of someone that would have grown up and contributed something to society. A sad thing but these are dead end stupid people. The truth hurts.

Confusing headline for a tragic story. One can infer she shot her brother´s corpse.

I don´t want to make light of this, however. In far too many urban areas and their neighboring towns, thug elements like to celebrate the new year by shooting their guns randomly and otherwise playing with them. It´s no fun to do this, of course, unless they´re drunk, high or both. Stories like this are the result.

If there hadn´t been a photo of this, this woman may not have been arrested. No one around her would want to snitch, you know.

#36: You are welcome.

#37: Not "technically correct," but correct. The fact that this particular correct usage is more common in Britain than here is mere happenstance.

Consider: if it read "accidentally shoots
brother in the head" the question of whether he lived is open. The headline´s use of "shoots dead" closes that issue. The construction is therefore not simply correct, but superior to typical American practice.

When U.S. combat deaths drop to zero

The United States has been at war in Afghanistan longer than any conflict in our history. Regardless of what one might think of the war in terms of strategic value, it has been a brutal, deadly conflict, seemingly without end. But as U.S. forces prepare for the conflict’s end, we can already see the changes to U.S. casualty rates. Indeed, the month that just ended last night, March 2014, marked an extraordinary milestone: as Hayes Brown noted, it was “the first time in more than a decade that there were zero U.S. fatalities among American troops engaging in combat.” In Iraq, the

The Bay Area Toll Authority spent $9.4 million to build a temporary entrance so the Bay Bridge´s bike path could be ready when the new eastern span opened to traffic in September. And now - after less than seven months - the half-mile-long connector is being torn down to make way for a new, permanent gateway. That puts the cost to provide temporary bike and pedestrian access to the bridge at about $47,000 a day.

Everyone knew there would be some gun owners flouting the law that legislators hurriedly passed last April, requiring residents to register all military-style rifles with state police by Dec. 31. But few thought the figures would be this bad. That 50,000 figure could be as little as 15 percent of the rifles classified as assault weapons owned by Connecticut residents, according to estimates by people in the industry, including the Newtown-based National Shooting Sports Foundation. No one has anything close to definitive figures, but the most conservative estimates place the number of unregistered assault weapons well above 50,000, and perhaps

Police are investigating death threats against 5-year-old Disney Channel actress Mia Talerico. The "Good Luck Charlie" starlet has been the target of anonymous harassment and threats against her life posted online. "Good Luck Charlie," one of Disney´s most popular shows, recently made headlines for featuring the first openly gay couple on the network in a Jan. 26 episode. A lesbian couple was worked into the story line — and managed to cause outrage among conservative parenting groups — but the uproar will only be around one episode.

The journalists at ABC News offered yet another high profile experiment to terrify the parents of America into not owning guns. In an hour-long special on Friday night, Diane Sawyer and David Muir hid pink guns at the playground of an elementary school in an effort to see if young girls would play with them. Unsurprisingly, the young children did. The Young Guns program also included the obvious revelation that firearms shouldn´t be concealed in backpacks and with candy. Diane Sawyer narrated, "For more than a decade, there has been a powder pink gun on the market." Referencing the location of

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
