    You and I know that but, a 5 year old?

    I'm going to guess that whoever is responsible for this tragedy is going to pay for it in a criminal or civil court or both.

    The article did say that the police are continuing to investigate, so we may eventually hear more on this story.

    The kid that picks up a real firearm is the same kid that would have fell off a cliff in the caveman days.



    Well the 5-year old that killed the other 5-year old in this case definitely knows that now.

    I never heard of that case before, do you have a link?

    Or did you just make this up?

    If anything there should be licensing for being a parent.

    This extends beyond regular citizens tho....I have written before about the local cop here that left a loaded gun in the glove compartment, left 7 yr old son and 3 yr old daughter alone in van to go into store.

    7 yr old found gun, took it, and accidentally killed sister.

    This cop knew better. It's not a matter of 'not knowing' and it certainly has nothing to do with training.


    Not only that, they didnt even want to bring charges against him. That same week, a Hispanic couple in Yakima had a gun legally hidden beneath their car seat. Their 3 yr old found it and killed himself. They were charged immediately. Both parents.

    After no charges were brought against the cop, public demand grew and they did bring charges on the cop. I was one of the people that emailed the county sheriff asking why no charges. "Different jurisdictions" was the answer. OK, I'm sure there is some truth in that. The cop was eventually brought up on a manslaughter charge, I dont remember which one.

    The Hispanic couple was convicted. the cop got a hung jury and was not re-tried.

    Because drowning accidents kills more kids than gun accidents

    I go back and forth on the issue. I had a neighbor sho lost their 3 year old in another neighbors pool about 15 years ago.
    People are charged for that. Even when fenced.

    It's an 'attractive nuisance.' Even if properly fenced. So are my horses, even behind no-climb wire fencing and hotwire. It depends on the state but we are told that there is no absolute way to protect yourself if a kid climbs your fence (even with a locked gate) and dies or get's injured.

    this is why pools can be a liability when selling a house.

    The cop shooting your kid pointing it at him has no idea what it weighs.

    I'd really like to add that this story is one that supports the need to allow concealed carry. When I had concealed carry, my weapon was always on my person until bedtime, and essentially right back on my person in the morning. The weapon would never have been available to child during normal child hours, it would be on me, secure.
