    some still contend, even here, that being in control of their gun 90% of the time and that they can trust their children is...

    good enough. a random link may be---suppose your doctor told you that another pregnancy may cause your death.
    would you than use a birth control method that was 90% effective and that you could trust your partner...
    is that 'good enough' also?
    Be aware, be deliberate in your actions and be accurate.

    Whenever there are kids about, my guns are locked up.. or on my hip...

    Little kids are curious, and if not mine, might not know diddle about guns or gun safety.

    Teenagers can be even more dangerous, because they think they know how to handle a gun... they do it on "Call of Duty" et al. all the time...

    Prayers to the family indeed. I really wish people would be more careful when their weapon isn't on their person. There are so many small, inexpensive safes with cables that are perfect for car storage.

    Tragic. It's a full time job for parents of little ones to keep them safe from poison, drowning, strangulation, falls, fire, and the rare incidence of firearm fatality.

    I always say that if a child "can" find your gun, they "will".

    This is so sad. I saw it on the news this morning when I woke up.

    A senseless tragedy. If your gun isn't on you, lock it up. I'm not sure what is so hard to understand about this.

    This is tragic, I hate hearing about children dying. The fact that it was avoidable probably puts a hurting on the family, even though their own negligence is to blame I will still pray for them.

    So tragic, sad and senseless-and there are too many instances like this.

    It is tragic and not the only one this past two weeks here in WA. Now we have the anti-gun bunch looking at changing the gun laws here once more all because some idiot can't keep his weapon under control. So now the rest of us have to endure the wrath of all this gun hate stuff.
