5-year-old kills his sister, 2, with 'My First Rifle' in Kentucky


quote:

It was "just one of those crazy accidents," in the words of the local coroner: A 5-year-old in Cumberland County, Ky., accidentally shot and killed his 2-year-old sister yesterday with a .22-caliber rifle.

But unlike many suchtragedies, the rifle in this case actually belonged to the child, the Lexington Herald-Leader reports. The gun, which he received as a gift last year, was inadvertently left loaded with a single shell in a corner of the family's home.

Irresponsible gun owners

So sad, but so avoidable

Stupid parents who have paid a huge price for their stupidity.

Total irresponsibility. A 5 year old should never be around a gun unsupervised and arguably shouldn't even learn to handle them with parents at that young.

Obama was right. We should bust into everyone's home and take their guns away. If we don't, I imagine a large percentage of our country's population will be wiped out by gun violence.

I understand the want to have your children active in shooting if you yourself were raised that way, but it's incredibly irresponsible of the parents to not teach their son proper gun safety. This includes the act of leaving a loaded firearm within reach of the child while parents aren't around.

Prayers sent to the family.

How does anyone have young children and do anything inadvertently with a gun in the home?

There really is excuse.

Inadvertently? It's a 5 year old!

loaded with a single shell


It was probably a Cricket .22 that only holds one round. Good thing they didn't leave an AR in the corner.

Yeah. Imagine the psychological scars the five-year-old will carry the rest of his life. What a burden of conscience.

I know a guy from the academy who went home one weekend and his nephew fatally shot himself with his service weapon. Really tore that guy up. Dropped out of the academy and went back a few years later. One of the greatest LEO's I know.

It truly is a tragedy that can always be avoided.

Tragic. Parents should be dealt with accordingly.
