A father was making lunch for his children in their Baker home Wednesday when the day turned tragic: A gun, recently purchased for protection, somehow landed in the hands of a curious toddler, who pulled the trigger before anyone could intervene.
The child was pronounced dead when medics arrived on the scene, responding to reports of an accidental shooting in a quiet Baker subdivision. He was 3 years old.
Hooray for freedom!
Booo for the dumb dad that let his 3 ear old kill himself!
Guns are awesome! The 2nd amendment rocks!
We don’t need gun owners to be responsible! Frankly, the little kid brought this upon himself.
Got to agree I just started shooting a bit over a year ago did the training classes and that’s one of the first things you learn about how to properly store them in safety. If you have a child imho it should never be in reach of a child.
And my point was that even if it comes with locks, it is still up to the gun owner to use them.
This story is bothersome because it appears that the gun owner left a loaded weapon unattended without locks on it and he lost a child. And no matter how many laws are in place to correct that, it will still be a problem. Many years ago I read a article that said that in all of the states there are 250 gun laws that are not being enforced. To me, that is the first place to start. Are they valid? Then why aren’t they being enforced?
