Put Your Guns Away

Why is it so hard for our ‘well regulated militia’ gun owners to understand that guns shouldn’t be left where children can get them.  And children can get them in most places.  When you leave your gun out, you endanger your kids.  Get it?  Is it sinking in yet?  No?  Oh well…

A 3-year-old died after he accidentally shot himself in the face. It happened shortly before 5:30 p.m. Friday in the 800 block of Samantha Lane in Clarksville. The toddler was vising from Fort Riley, Kansas, with his family. He shot himself with a .40-caliber handgun that belonged to the homeowner.

He was taken to Tennova Healthcare-Clarksville in critical condition but passed away a short time later. Clarksville officials said this appears to be an accidental shooting. No criminal charges have been filed at this time, and the investigation is ongoing.

Lord have mercy.

    These instances as well as the “baby in a hot car” instances should be treated as criminal.

    I grew up around guns. My parents had no trouble keeping them away from us. Locked closets, safes, leaving them at my grandparents’ homes in a safe…tool box of the car, etc. It’s not rocket science.
