Keep guns locked, especially when there's a child in the vicinity. Moron.

It could have been suicide. Not sure why everyone is so quick to conclude accident, not suicide, in deaths of young children. 2 year olds face a lot of stress nowadays.

Keep your Ferrets locked up as well. In Philadelphia, three pet Ferrets mauled a 1 month old baby. Blame the Ferrets or the parents? Blame the guns or the people who break laws using them? Luckily, the Mother heard the baby screaming or that baby would now be dead. As it is, the baby will be disfigured for life.

.... And the good your words do in the face of such a preventable tragedy? In my 60+ years, never has any 2 year old ever been observed to be wishing their life to be through, even severely abused ones (have already seen more than enough my lifetime).You must be one of the 4%.
.... The youngest, plausible suicides are 6 years old, many of them being questionable so far as circumstances as well as if the child really understood the results are permanent.



.... Am also doubting charges will be filed though the negligence is heartbreaking. My sense is that ones could not possibly be punished any greater than the loss they must deal with for the duration of their lives. No words could possibly capture the depth of such a event nor any greater punishment fitting.

Can the parents not be charged with negligent homicide?

If the parents in this case should be charged with negligent homicide, why shouldn't the parents of children who die in back yard pools be charged with the same thing?

Exactly! How about the kids who ride quads and break their necks too? What is it that any time a gun is involved the hoards come out demanding punishments in these cases yet remain so silent when any other causes of children's deaths are involved?

.... Got me thinking then researching, Annie53, & found this among others:

.... Affidavit: Mother smoking cigarettes, marijuana on day 4-year-old son drowns in pool - 7NEWS Denver TheDenverChannel.com

.... It does happen, case by case circumstances, no doubt. Thanks.

You spurred me on to search a little further myself.

Seems parents being charged is kinda arbitrary.

When is an Accident a Crime? When Should Parents be Charged?

Define "stored".

For me, that's in the weapons locker. There, they are unloaded.

But if they are outside the weapons locker, then they are in an armed and ready condition. There are at least 2 reasons for this. First, there are potential defensive situations where one might only have one hand available.Secondly, repeated loading, unloading of a round may jam the bullet further into the brass causing an undesirable condition of the round.

But if we are talking about children being around, then we are back to my post on page 3.
Do you even own a gun? Do you know anything about guns?

I would say no, Terry Kath's brain!

Take a course on gun safety today.
