A 4-year-old remained hospitalized Tuesday afternoon at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem after he accidently shot himself in the foot late Monday afternoon, said Davidson County Sheriff David Grice.
Upon arrival, deputies discovered a 4-year-old boy had been shot in the foot. The investigation revealed the child had obtained the gun from the parent’s room, was playing with it and discharged the firearm.
The Davidson County Sheriff’s Office will be seeking charges on the parents for violation of storage of a firearm to protect minors.
This is the way it should be, unless they plea bargain it down to something minor enough to keep the gun rights. What do you think?
