7 year old fires gun on school bus!
January 09, 2012, 04:44:36 PM
Read story here...

I'm appalled that a handgun was being kept without being under lock and key in a house with young children.  I'm not against guns but I am against leaving a weapon where a child can access it.  That should be against the law across the country, in my opinion.  What do you think?

I think that is actually the law most places. You can be charged with child endangerment where I live, if you leave a loaded handgun where a child has reasonable access to it.

I can't imagine how terrifying this situation was for everyone involved.

There are so many issues with this that I don't even know where to begin so all I am going to do is ((shake my head)).

All firearms are sold with trigger locks for that reason!  You don't even have to pay for them...they give them to you free!  What irresponsible parents!

My husband is a Police Officer so we have firearms in the house.  We also have a $3,000 safe that has a door like a bank vault.  My husband is a fanatic about locking up his is the very first thing he does when he gets home from work is lock up his gun.  Not only do we not want our children to touch them, we don't want guests or hired workers to have access to them, either.  We want everyone in our home to be safe.
