So sad, that poor kid :(  And if it was indeed the 6yr old I feel so sorry for him, having to live with that.

Who the hell leaves kids alone in a car with a loaded gun?  Someone is responsible for that little girls death and it sure isn't her brother :(

Most likely a careless parent.  Is jail time justified if that is the case?  I can't imagine any punishment being worse than just waking with that memory every day.

This is what happens when you leave loaded (and unloaded) firearms around children. Lock them up or keep them secure.

I mention the Unloaded part because if a child gets there hands on an unloaded weapon the will think that all guns are like this and nothing bad will happen (it takes some time for a child to realize danger unless they themselves have been directly hurt, such has they touch a hot stove).

do not leave guns laying around.

I agree. Keep your firearms locked up!

So why not regulate this? This is what gun control is actually about.

it is regulated, it is illegal already, there is a law on the book. more than 1 i'm sure. what more of "gun control" are you implying.

what mesures are you suggesting that will affect those that disregard laws, and wont affect those that follow it.

something practical, not just "gun control" a hypothetical hot air phrase, that you keep mentioning all the time.

My kids(3 girls)were all handling and firing a variety of weapons at 7- 10 years old which they throughly enjoyed. As well they were instructed in the safe handling and storage of those same weapons and as a result I knew I will never have to worry about something like this nightmare happening to them. They understood and respected firearms and now,as adults I believe the education I provided when they were so very young has done nothing but  benefit them.

My point being that hiding firearms from children just makes them more curious and unprepared if they do get their hands on them resulting in a tragedy just like this.

Teaching a child of age 7-10 to properly care for and respect a firearm under strict supervision is a lot different than leaving a gun laying around where a toddler can get at it.

OK. I can see a constructive point of that, if done responsibly, which apparently you have.

:tu:

My dad brought up me and my sisters around guns and we KNEW better than to touch them. Now, older children, 7 or 8 year olds can be taught to respect guns and know they are not toys. Young children (toddlers) really don't know any better. With younger children you should really lock up your guns in a gun case, like me and my husband do. I NEVER EVER EVER leave a loaded weapon where my son can get it.

Of course she suffered, she is dead. She is just a statistic now that adds to the argument about Gun control.

But we have to remember, we all know that we can't protect our families unless we have guns.

I am alive today or maybe not severely mentally and physically scarred, because of a gun and a big dog, against three men while hiking in the woods alone. Some people may say I shouldn't have put myself in that sort of situation, but I enjoy nature and the solace of the local mountain range. The danger is not only human, even though I've never had to shoot an animal. Using a weapon is always a last resort.

People have to remember, women don't always have a big strong man available to take care of them.
