I would've been put under very bad media coverage because I shot a child with a toy gun.
So I troubling thought (from a father to be(this coming January)), who's fault is it?
*Myself for not analyzing the situation more clearly?
*Parent to the child for not teaching proper handling and what to do and not to do with a firearm?
**Also noting what could happen and the possible message it sends when you hold something like this (not to mention the amount of responsibility that one should have with one)
*The child for knowing that actions can have consequences?
*The maker of the firearm to make a gun mimic a real hand gun with no obvious / apparent markings to distinguish it from a real gun?
And on the flip side. Even if you were not actually at fault for such a action, others may perceive, label and continue to treat you as such.
As much as I want to protect myself and my family. I also don't want to do anything that would limit myself from protecting my family in the future and strip the freedoms I come to love and enjoy.
