I do not understand how a four year old has an possible access to a gun. This is the type of abuse of fire arms that I hate.

They needed a little bit of the “gun culture” in their house. No one in the gun culture would advocate leaving a loaded gun where a 4 year old can get at it.

This is a typical news story about guns. There isn’t enough information to make a decision concerning what happened. The action of most handguns is too stiff for a small child to operate. It doesn’t say whether the handgun was an automatic or a revolver.

Let’s see, this should be good for 437 more articles discussing the inherent danger of firearms, 432 of which will delete any mention of culpability on the part of the parental units who allowed the 4 yo to get his hands on the gun.

Can’t you just feel this movement growing...we need 3-4 more tragedy stories to come out, and then another anti-2A group to form with massive funding, with new messaging to come out, and they will work this and work this again and again.

Obviously, the 2 yo should have been aborted, right?

snip

Police say the 4-year-old was playing with a handgun he had found in a bedroom when the shooting occurred.

Sgt. William Palmer confirmed both of the boy’s parents were both home at the time of the shooting. Three of the couple’s children — 1-year-old, 4-year-old, and a 5-year-old that was not home at the time — are now in protective custody.

Homicide investigators have been assigned to the case and are interviewing the parents, but no arrests have been made. Once complete, the investigation will be referred to the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office for possible charges against the parents.

A toddler shot dead by a four-year-old is a tragedy because of the gun, but over 700,000 unborn babies in the past year killed by their mothers is a constitutional right because of a few demented justices on the Supreme Court.

To put it in more perspective, since 1968 or so, there have been over 800,000 murders in the United States. Over roughly the same number of years, there have been over 53,000,000 abortions in the United States. In other words, for each murder there have been over 66 abortions. Any time you hear anyone refer to males being disproportionately involved in murder and, thus, the more violent of the sexes, point out that women are involved in the taking of human lives, especially innocent human lives, at a rate that is at least 6600% greater than men.

The parents or whomever let the kids have access to the gun should be charged with murder of a child.

maybe....just maybe, the gun had to be handy because the parents were gang-bangers...in the drug business, whatever. Not all guns are in the hands of law abiding citizens for their personal protection!! Let’s wait and see...

Tragic...Truly heartbreaking.

And just watch them blame the "evil malicious gun."

Let’s see...the Riverside neighborhood, children 1, 2, 4 and 5, parents are home and an unattended gun in a bedroom. Were the parents expecting a delivery and I don’t mean the Fedex guy?

Does make one wonder if they were legal to carry?/s

Poor little kid(s). Throw their animal parents in jail for a long time.
