    Negligence in a most tragic sense.

    I have a 3 year old. My biggest fear is of the whole gun pointed backwards, using thumb, bad incident. Hadn't really occurred that this could happen. These incidents are why I have already and continue to review the rules of gun safety with my sons, and wife.

    Prayers for that family.

    The child may have thought it was a toy and wanted to play with his dad in front of everyone. I am certain that when the gun fired it shocked the little boy, and I doubt he will forget. It will probably scar him for life.

    Really sad and tragic. Such is the consequence for negligence.
    I'm just glad it wasn't the 3-year-old that died.

    sad.. did not need to happen..

    again, HOW THE HECK DID THE KID HAVE ACCESS TO THE GUN!?!?!

    a loaded weapon where a 3yr old can both reach it, and it is rendered operable? How is that NOT a recipe for disaster? My bopy just turned 1 yesterday, guess what I'm doing this weekend? I'm buying a nice big personal safe and putting it about 7ft up in a closet shelf and LOCKING all of my UNLOADED handguns inside of it.. my EDC gun is LOCKED in a travel case at my bedside when not in my possession.

    Kids will explore.. they will play, leave a loaded gun where a kid can find it, and tragedy will result. COMMON SENSE gun control is locking up your firearms so no unauthorized people can touch them.

    What a horrible tragedy. All my questions about access to the gun have already been asked, and besides, this is not the time for that family to be answering questions from the police or anyone else.

    I'm not sure why anyone would leave a loaded gun lying around with little kids. If the father followed the simple rule of keeping the gun on his person or in a safe, this wouldn't have happened.
