children and guns

I'm not a gun hater or do I ever think we could be a nation without guns but I really hate the fact that there are so many irresponsible people who have guns.   

Right before Thanksgiving a 3 year old boy reached under the sofa and pulled out a loaded gun.  The child accidentally shot his mother in the head and killed her.  She was a veteran and had just given birth to her second child.  This happened here in Oklahoma.

Then yesterday a two year old in Idaho pulls a gun out of his mother's purse and accidentally kills his mother in Walmart.  She had 4 children with her at the time.  WHY do you need to pack heat on a trip to Walmart with 4 little children?   I don't get it.

Is everyone paranoid?  Children and guns don't mix!

So sad!

Wow, very sad stories.

At the risk of sounding harsh, I think those women got just what they deserved. If you're going to be that irresponsible, you have to take the consequences. Now, those children will probably have to spend a lot of time in therapy, once they realize what they did at such a young age. And, yes, I do think someone will tell them all about it. It just makes me so mad.....!
