Re: 7 Year Old Boy Shot By Father
My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. I don't have to feel bad for the guy, he is going to feel bad enough for himself. I do feel bad for the rest of the family. I don't think the guy going to prison is going to change anything, either way he is going to have to live with what he did. Actually, prison may help it be easier on him. Outside life may be much worse for him than being inside steel and concrete. There will always be someone to remind him, and probably not in a good way. It was such a stupid waste of a young life. Guns are always treated as if they are loaded. Always point muzzle in a safe direction. Don't point at anything you don't intend to shoot. Keep finger off trigger until ready to shoot. Also I would question the gun shop if they looked at his guns, they didn't bother to do a safety check. That is the first thing you do when someone hands you a gun. Check to be sure it is safe to handle.
