    3-Year-Old Boy Shoots His Twin Brother

    Three firearms, left lying around where children could find them.

    Why won't people store guns safely?

    Why do some idiots insist on leaving loaded guns laying around their home?

    Who will post that the other brother should have been armed?

    Notice it was illegal for her to own the firearms, remind us how current laws prevent felons from owning firearms while demanding the lawful lose their weapons?

    Possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Anybody think another law would have prevented this tragedy?

    Felon or not, the parent is responsible it appears. And yes, I want a man convicted of a pot felony 25 years ago to have his firearm rights restored. I can buy an armory, and I sweat out driving on interstates.

    To me, the only thing right that was done was the not waiting for the paramedics to arrive. At least the mom had some sense. Taking off afterwards though couldn't have been a more stupid move and will only end up making the hole that she got herself into even more deeper.

    God bless you and the twins always!!!

    Big deal. How many other kids shoot themselves with firearms that were legal?

    How tragic.

    Now, someone come in and trash everyone on the planet who is still in favor of legal gun ownership.

    Informed or not, kids make the "choice" to engage in such actions.

    In some jurisdictions it's illegal to consult with women who intend to have an abortion in order to talk them into keeping the critter that resides within.
