Re: 5 year old given rifle as gift, kills 2 year old sister

Another group of parents for "parents of the year":

A 2-year-old boy is recovering after Randolph County deputies say he found a handgun inside his home, put it in his mouth, and the weapon fired.

Deputies say the toddler found his father's .45-caliber handgun in his parents' bedroom on Saturday.

Authorities say the boy is expected to survive after being taken to a Winston-Salem hospital.
Gods damn it people. Guns + Kids in the house = Lock that shit up where they can't get to it.

The Randolph County Sheriff's Office and the district attorney will decide if the parents should be charged for leaving the pistol improperly locked.
"Should be charged"? The two year old got the gun and was able to fire it. Yes, I would think that means the damn thing wasn't properly stored and/or locked.
