Very sad. Prayers sent for the family. I actually like this area in Kentucky. Been there twice lately to Cumberland Lake.

yep, it was a Cricket .22

quote:

said the girl died of a single gunshot wound to the chest area


quote:

The company that made the gun, Milton, Pa.-based Keystone Sporting Arms, produced 60,000 Crickett and Chipmunk rifles in 2008, according to its website


from the comments:
quote:

nobody with half a brain would give a five year old a rifle.
I got my first .22 when I was 10, but it was locked up and I was only allowed to shoot it under adult supervision. Anything else is pure stupidity.


quote:

At 5 years old I got a Red Rider bb gun that was locked in my fathers gun cabinet with the big boys guns and never had access to it unless my father was present at all times.


60,000 guns, only one shooting - BAN CRICKET ASSAULT .22's

And this is why my little girl will not be playing with guns. Even if she gets one as a gift. HELL no.

Irresponsible gun owners

So sad, but so avoidable


This. Most gun accidents aren't caused because guns are evil. Most gun accidents are caused by the owner being an idiots.

Maybe to the grandparents. No sympathy for the parents. Send their asses to jail for negligence.

I know some kids start off young, but a 4 year old with a rifle is kind of . Should have given him a bb or airsoft gun to start with

I had my first rifle at 5 and it wasnt a .22

Killed a deer at 6 with a 6.5x55 swede.

The parents are at fault here for not properly securing their guns and not teaching their kid proper gun safety.

This is terribly sad. But it does illustrate a reality check. If you take away guns from 2 year olds, only 5 year olds will have guns.

If the 2 year old had a CCL, this story might have had a happier ending. Frickin 5 year olds!
