    I'll stick with what I said as you have displayed your ignorance on this subject quite well.

    The problem no one see's here is that these shootings are labeled as "accidental". Primarily because the acceptance gun ownership has gained in our society, we would rather call these incidents accidents instead of a crime. Because once we start calling these incidents crimes, we actually have to pass laws that might make it more difficult for people to own firearms. The NRA and its useful idiots will never allow that.
    - There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.

    It is an accident crime or not because of no intent to harm or kill anyone. It's like the difference between criminal trespass and burglary or Murder 1 or 2 and negligent homicide. Intent is as important as the actions involved under thew law.

    useful idiocy is blaming the NRA for the actions of someone who was most likely not an NRA members. Do you consider fatal automobile accidents intentional crimes too? How about the far more common case of kids drowning in swimming pools. Do people like you celebrate infant deaths as something you can use to bash legal gun ownership? It sure seems so And what sort of background screening checks against ACCIDENTS?

    Why don't you explain this. I know what you mean-you are trying to say that having a right to keep and bear arms costs "innocents" their lives. It is like your attempt to argue for a monument to "second amendment martyrs" claiming that our rights cause others to die

    A society which has almost as many weapons as people is going to have an amount of collateral damage. Some innocent people will pay for that reality.

    You would have made a great post if it weren't for the partisan baiting.

    As a life NRA member I fully support safe storage laws for all states. Leaving your gun accessable to to any "prohibited person" (which includes 5 year-olds) is not an accident, it's negligence, and negligence IS a crime.

    That the gun owner is not facing a felony child endangerment charge for this demonstrates a Law Enforcement deficiency. Passing more gun control doesn't adress problems of deraliction of duty with the District Attorney's office.
