The problem here is not the NRA. The problem is Darwinism. You know, that rule of thumb that states that dumb asses aren't meant long for this world.
Maybe this is God's way of teaching us to keep our pieces out of the reach of 2 year old's.
Yeah, it's really sad. I'm just grateful that the 2 year old didn't get shot.

Diplomacy is the art of saying 'nice doggy" until you can find a gun.
Honestly.. I don't really see so far that the women was being irresponsible. She had a weapon.. in the purse, in a special pocket designed for it. I am sorry, but the idea that a two year old.. is going to find the hidden pocket, unzip it.. be able to handle the weapon.. and fire it, AND hit his mother and kill her?
There is a lot of things that had to go wrong at multiple steps for that to happen. So far.. I don't think it was being irresponsible.. I think it was simply bad luck. Crap happens... even when you prepare. There is a risk to life. There is risk to owning a car and driving it on the street. Every accident on the street "could have been prevented".. if everyone simply didn't drive.
there is a risk to owning firearms.. heck there is a risk in NOT owning a firearm.
The fact is that there are thousands upon thousands of weapons in the homes, purses, glove compartments, and pockets of americans. And probably the majority of those weapons are NOT as well secured as the woman having a firearm in a concealed carry purse with a special dedicated pocket for it. And yet.... tragedies like this make the news... because they are exceedingly rare... tremendously rare... more rare than falling in the bathtub and dying.
Just thought I would interject a little perspective.
Then, rather than keeping the weapon seperate and not carrying it chambered, they carried for everyday hunting with bad results.
The true cause was: Bored Homo Sapiens performing a functions check on a weapon, while thinking of other things... .

I wonder if she had a CCP on a whim or whether she was a serious gun owner.
Perhaps she was just stuck on stupid.
She did not have control of her weapon and she left access to her toddler - it seems that she broke every rule out there.
So tragic for all involved.
