Dumbasses like this make us all look bad. Cheyenne is in better hands now, may she rest in peace

You may not like guns. You may choose not to own one. That is your right.
You might not believe in God. That is your choice.
However, if someone breaks into your home at 3AM the first two things you are going to do are:
1) Call someone with a gun.
2)Pray they get there in time." - A wise man

Ugh. I hate reading about these stories. I have two small daughters (5 and 2) and have taught my older daughter not to touch my guns. But there's no way that I would trust either of them with my guns. They're either on me or in a locked safe.
Leaving a loaded gun on a table is beyond lazy and careless.

I googled 3 Year old Shootings and found about 4 in the last 2 years in the same matter. WHAT is wrong with these people! You can get a safe at walmart for $25 bucks.

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.
That, and he kept his REAL guns locked up.

What part of "keep control of your gun" , do some people not get ? That's not close to keeping control of your gun.

I reflect all the sentiment above, but also, what does he mean "to scare the dogs off"? Do dogs understand what a gun pointed at them means? I don't think so, all they see is another human with something in his hand... unless he was thinking of shooting into the gronud or something, which is whole other kind of stupid...

I bought my daughter 2 guns 2 years ago for christmas,A S&W MP 9c and a Sig Mosquito,I also bought her a handgun safe to keep them in due to my 5 year old Granddaughter,It would have been Irresponsible for her not to be able to secure the guns out of her reach

Both parents are at fault.
The dad for being an idiot and the mom for being a moron to not be smart/wise/aware enough to look out for her daughter by staying on top of her husband toward his idiotic gun handling and usage manner.
BTW the Wii 'gun' called a "Zapper" looks like this...
Wii Zapper at Nintendo :: Wii :: What Is Wii? :: Accessories
It does not look _anything_ even remotely similar to any handgun firearm of any sort.
And if that second item in the OPs story is their 'gun' then that is some aftermarket item they bought.
Still the father and mothers explanation is thinner than spiders silk.
The real problem here is that they let their child down for being an idiot and moron.

What a sickening mistake...if you have guns, you must be on top of their care...24/7.

Anyone ignorant enough to use a handgun to "scare off dogs" is probably not bright enough to own one.
Tragic case in point here.

That is really sad. KNOWING you have kids, who in their right mind would leave a cocked and locked firearm sitting within arms reach of a child? Why not leave a bottle of open Pine Sol down there for them too while you're at it.
One of the most dangerous political philosophies afflicting America today is the belief that we can’t allow anyone to suffer the natural consequences of their own stupidity.
