 Police believe an infant was fatally shot Friday by his 3-year-old brother after the older boy got a hold of a gun inside a Houston apartment.

The infant was shot in his abdomen Friday morning, said Houston Police Department Assistant Chief Wendy Baimbridge.

Several adults who were inside the apartment drove the 8-month-old boy to a hospital, where he died.

Appears that poor parenting might be the  cause of  this tragedy . 

And later this will probably come back to haunt the now three year old kid .

 So thanks Mum , or ,  Dad  , or  , some designated person for being derelict in your responsibility .

“I just want to take this moment and plead with parents and guardians all over to not allow your firearms to be accessible to anyone in the house. Lock them up. There are things that you can do to render that weapon safe. Please pray for this family. This is just a tragic event,” Baimbridge said.

 NRA has fought gun safety as a prerequisite to owning a weapon, all that "shall not be infringed" part.

Maybe if the gun manufacturers had required proof of weapon handling and proper storage, and do not use for unlawful purposes before purchasing, maybe they wouldn't find themselves about to be opened up to being sued. Just saying.

And if they had required it, it still would not be infringement because they are private entities, and not the Government. 

And the gun manufacturers are the only businesses that cannot be sued.

Accidents will still happen with properly secured guns. The only way to mimisevthe chance of this happening again in the future is proper training in toddler ownership.

Here i go i will p*** off a certain ilk of gun lovers

A true gun lover not some clown who thinks its his right to both own deadly weapons ( becauses hes so deeply insurecure ) and act like a careless incompetent clown, , but an actual rational level headed person who deserves gun ownership would have no issue with a little safety course, background/mental screening and licence like for driving or fishing.

It could be set up to be fair,

Now i expect a lot of fallout with lame excuses and reasons why im an idiot why im wrong and guess what? I do not care what they think, the ones who yell the loudest likely are the same ones who would fail to cut the muster to own a gun which they likely know hence why they come all unhinged, so take a mental note of those names.

So forgive me for not wasting time repling to any tripe.

Yes, of course a gun with a simple trigger lock still can shoot a person, even in a gun safe,

That sounds good to teach a 3 yo not to touch a gun some incompetent moron leaves out.

I agree. But there is always the lunatic fringe.

Being a responsible parent in our society is even less of a requirement than being a responsible gun owner.

Safety is a relative thing.  If you put signs and an 8' fence at the edge of a precipice people could still climb over and jump, but fewer 3 year old kids would  fall over the edge than if there was no fence at all. 

We really don't want responsible gun owners.  People want crazy people to be able to own guns because deep down some people might worry that  they might be viewed as crazy themselves.
