  1. Tragic does not say enough!
    Parents what were you thinking. Even if not your home the unsupervised child should not been anywhere near that gun. It looks so irresponsible of all adults in home. I’m so so sorry for the family this is another senseless child seat that should have never happened. I’m sorry if I sound harsh but gun safety is number one especially with children around. Yes I have a CCL.

  2. The parents should be charges with child endangerment. I’m very sorry for their loss but it was entirely preventable. The child should never have been able to get his hands on a gun – loaded or not.
