I was 5 and I was pretty sure this thing was dangerous and to keep away from the trigger.

Are we raising morons?

You may wonder why the gun owner has been charged and held without bond for a gun 'accident', when so often no charges are filed.

Victim blaming a 7 year old. Nice.

Reminder: if you keep a gun in your home, it is more likely to be used against yourself, a friend or a family member than it is against an intruder.

At least the kid didn't find the guy's drugs. The beating inflicted would have sent the perp to jail for longer than what he faces now...

If only the 7 year old had a gun in the first place, he would have been protected from the second gun...

Or is it he needed an armed guard?

I can't keep up with the new "If Only" arguments from the Right anymore.

I see the ban all guns crowd is out in force. The gun owner was irresponsible. Most gun owners keep theirs locked away except for their ccw. My gun is on me or on the nightstand in a locked box to protect me as I sleep.

I envision a beretta walking a patrol around Byrdman's house.
