    BAD: Toddler shot, knocked loaded gun off stool

    Toddler shot, knocked loaded gun off stool - FOX30Online.com Jacksonville News Leader

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- 3-year-old Eric Bell is recovering at Shands Jacksonville with a gunshot wound to the chin. Police say his mother's boyfriend is responsible, even though he didn't pull the trigger.

    Police say 27-year-old Nicholas Fairclough had a handgun and a sawed-off shotgun in a backpack when he came home to Phyllis Street Sunday night. They say Fairclough placed the backpack on a barstool in the kitchen. But the toddler accidentally knocked the backpack off the stool, causing one of the guns to fire.

    Fairclough, who is already a known criminal, now faces charges of culpable negligence and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. The boy's mother was home at the time of the shooting. Police say she was in another room doing laundry. She will not face any criminal charges.

    I'm glad this idiot criminal is off the street, but it was at a price. I do hope this child fully recovers and this O2 waster dosn't see daylight for a LONG time!

    Stories like this really suck. Not only did an innocent child get injured due to the carelessness of this d-bag (who wasn't supposed to have a freakin' handgun in the first place), but now it's just one more statistic for the anti's to use against us. Furthermore, who carries a pistol and a sawed of scatter gun in their backpack? Was this his "home invasion toolkit"?

    This is actually the type of story that brings pros and antis together. We both want the dirtbags disarmed. The problem is that the antis somehow think that if enough laws are passed to prevent the law abiding citizen from having a firearm, that eventually the dirtbags will see the errors of their ways and give up their arms.

    The only way to understand how a liberal thinks is to understand that liberalism is really a mental disorder. It should be listed in the DSM IV.

    Sad for the kid, glad he will be OK. I hope this wakes Mom up and teaches her a lesson. No man is worth risking your kid's life over...

    But I doubt it will
