Exactly!!!!! that is why i posted IGNORANCE KILLS.....WHO IS IGNORANT ENOUGH TO LEAVE A GUN, SPECIALLY LOADED WHERE A 3 YR OLD HAS ACCESS TO IT...THANKFULLY THE 3 YR OLD DIDNT SHOOT HIS SELF ON ACCIDENT..MLBR. i bet you would think different when that criminal breaks into your home, and puts you and your family in harms way...and your only chance of survival is a bullet loaded in the gun you hold in your hands!!!! Police response probably would not help you!!

Thank you "Fred Garvin" and "J"... as for you, "Rex T Jeeper," you need slapped for blaming guns on this incident. Surely the person shooting the gun is innocent, the gun made him do it. You're ridiculous.

AGAIN "Rex T Jeeper" the gun should have been locked up and entirely impossible for the 3 yr old boy to reach. His father should have thought of that one before... that was practically suicide on his part.

"Rex T Jeeper"...why don't you just get a gun yourself then you wouldn't have to call on your neighbor "Chris Myers" to protect you.
