Discussion: 5-Year-Old Accidentally Shoots 2 Children At S.C. Birthday Party

Discussion for article #221183

Any charges should apply to the adults who allowed the child anywhere near a loaded rifle or were dumb enough to have an unsecured weapon near a child too young to know the difference between a toy and a real rifle.

Responsible gun owners secure their weapons when not in use. Transporting a loaded, unlocked weapon where a 5-year old can get to it was an invitation to trouble.

A 7-year old is dead from a gunshot and the police “don’t know” whether they will be pressing charges? Whoever owns that weapon is guilty of murder.

oh, and fuck the NRA.
