The subject story is full of lack of information as to why this incident occurred. But it touches directly on the negligence of the parents for their leaving an unsecured handgun in the home where it could be used by persons that should not have had access to it. When is America going to wake up. If you own a gun, it is your responsibility to secure it properly so no others can use it. A $20.00 trigger lock could have prevented the death of the older brother. TWENTY DOLLARS!
The failure of gun owners to secure their weapons is a criminal violation that needs to be charged and prosecuted in this Country. Letting parents off the hook because the parent has been through enough with the death of their child, is Bullshit! If your neighborhood is so dangerous that you must leave your guns unsecured for immediate access, move because it is also too dangerous for your children to live there.
Tell you what folks . . . If any of you asshole gun owners cannot afford to put a simple $20.00 trigger lock on your gun so it does not kill others, let me know and I will find a way to see you get one.
