    Right to bare arms? Shouldn't that right come with responsibility not to have a loaded gun where kids can get hold of them? Surely this is common sense. Another senseless and preventable death...face palm

    Gun control? No?
    A tragic situation, but not indicative of the many responsible gun owners in the US. With over 300 million guns in circulation in the US, this is in many ways surprisingly rare.

    I hope the owners of the gun used suffer the full consequences of the law if their actions and/or neglect led directly to this tragedy.
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    Clearly Cleveland should be outlawed.

    Right to bare arms? No, you have no right to wear sleeveless shirts. Anyone caught cutting the sleeves off their shirts should be jailed immediately.

    It won't, because in order for the idea that "If my kid shoots someone with a gun I left lying out, I'll go to prison" to affect your behavior, you first have to be capable of making the connection that "If I leave my loaded gun lying out, my kid might shoot someone with it". And that's something these people are obviously unable to do.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Someone broke the law and is being charged for it. So...that's it. Nothing to discuss.

    it is about the parents's carelessness ,not gun control I think and that is one of the reasons why I believe not everybody should be allowed to have guns

    Yes, in this country we have a right to bare arms, unless the laws recently changed and we all have to cover them with sleeves like Muslim and Amish women.

    No indeed.


    It's tragic, but more toddlers die from drowning than gunshot. More children die in car crashes than by gunshot. More children die from parental abuse or neglect than by gunshot.


    Solve those common problems and then we can talk about rare outliers like gun accidents, which have been trending lower for decades.

    The word accident doesn't even appear in the OPs article or headline.

    One of these things is not like the others
    Kentucky: Caroline Sparks

    Pennsylvania: Owen Harris

    Cleveland: Braylon Robinson.

    Does that give you a clue as to why there might be a different standard?
