    Toddler was a good shot, too bad the parents were stupid enough to leave wife's purse with a loaded gun in it for the kid to reach.

    More irresponsibility from gun owners.

    Authorities have taken their child away from them for the time being, but maybe too late.
    Time to ban children.

    It's simple: prosecute the gun's owner for reckless endangerment. Same as if a knife was left out and the kid hurt someone; same as if they left a cleaning chemical out and the kid drank it; same as if a backyard pool was left uncovered and the kid nearly drowned; same as if they were into falconry and left the cage open giving the kid access to a wild raptor....

    In Texas it's illegal to drive your car in public where other people can see it. You have to keep your car concealed at all times or people think you're going to run them over.

    And the point you chose to miss is that all weapons are inanimate objects. Its the potential lethality of the weapon once in human hands that matters

    A car is not a weapon its a mode of transportation where accidents are often a consequence

    A gun is a weapon used to kill where accidents are often a consequence

    Try and figure out the difference between accident and intent and explain why 30,000+ additional and mostly intentional killings per annum are a good thing.

    Since 9/11 the US has spent around $1.8 trillion on the war on terror allegedly in order to keep its citizens safe yet only around 20 of its citizens have died in terror attacks. Over the same period something approaching half a million US citizens have been needlessly killed by domestic firearms yet this gets ignored. Go figure. The US has by far the highest rate of gun killings in the developed world even approaching the rates in basket case countries like South Africa. Needless to say were any political party in any other nation to suggest emulating the US model their respective electorates would cast them into the political wilderness, and rightly so.

    Irrelevant. Both are hazards in the hands of a small child.

    I give up, how are injury accidents a good thing.

    Irrelevant. This didn't happen in a war zone, the parents werent soldiers and the gun wasn't a service piece.
