Real sad story :(

As for this guy... he's got this to live with for the rest of his life now.
Protection is a responsibility not just a right.
Real sad story :(

Alright people, I consider you all my friends, please don't have any unsecured firearms lying around the house. All firearms should be locked up or in your immediate possession at all times.
No exceptions. Ever. Even if you don't have kids. Even if you life alone and have no friends. Even if your dog took the NRA Basic Pistol Course.

+1 on this. I spied a .22 Chipmunk in pink that didn't look like a firearm. We have instructed our kids to vacate the area and tell if another kids has a gun. And if it looks like a gun, no matter what color, treat it like one is something we hammer into our young uns.I bet this is why my dad always had the rule: "If it looks like a gun, treat it like a gun." We didn't have anything that looked even remotely like an actual gun.
The closest thing was probably the Nintendo Duck Hunt gun, I remember the first time I was playing with it I pointed it at him...he was really upset and I quickly learned not to do that.
This is depressing.

How we behave as gun owners is important. Posturing and threatening does not serve us well in the public eye.
Its a sad story and the guy is a fkn idot leaving a gun in the room of a three year old. Who is all alone, now he is paying the price for being a idot the worst way ever. Very sad. But not for nothing....if that is a toy gun for the Wii then, someone else is also in trouble. Last I knew all toy guns have to have an orage tip. Does that go for Wii, PS3, XBox, and such games?
This is so sad.
No excuses. Guns don't belong on the table. Loaded or not. Awake or asleep. Don't matter. You keep an eye on it.
Now...I pray to God that I myself never make the same mistake...

Once again: Cocked, locked, loaded and ready to shoot...like some of these guns inside my childless spouseless house...since children NEVER enter it...so far...or rarely...or once in awhile.
