Yes, stupid people. Bad parents.
Nevertheless, a 4-year old child lies in a premature coffin.
Given that there are so many stupid, irresponsible people, shouldn't there be something written into your laws to safeguard the innocent?
Like TIGHTEN UP LAWS ON GUN OWNERSHIP...perhaps?
Let's imagine a plausible scenario for this happened and see where
we can place the blame.
Let's say grandma and grandpa live together in Detroit. Grandpa
fears for his safety in this dangerous area and keeps a gun loaded
under the bed. He doesn't tell grandma because she is so afraid
of guns that she would rather face a criminal unarmed than
to possess one.
So grandpa leaves for the day, the daughter calls to see if
grandma can baby-sit for the day. Grandma accepts.
The children come over. Grandma tells them to play while
she makes PB and J's.
Child's dead, who's to blame?
Of course it's unavoidable, DON'T buy guns and have them in the house.
