More on the Houston 4-Year-old

Posted on the 26 February 2013 by Mikeb302000

As we reported yesterday, this accidental shooting resulted in the death of a 4-year-old. What's come out today is that the gun was stolen and the gun owner had drugs in the house. The distraught dad was nearly hysterical with grief claiming that he'd told the boy never to touch the gun.
My question is what's the difference between this case and those in which a lawful gun owner experiences a similar tragedy.  Answer: not much, not much at all.
Criminal gun owners love their children just like their lawful counterparts do.  They teach the kids about gun safety the same way.  They cry when their kids get hurt too.
Lawful gun owners and criminal gun owners are birds of a feather. This kind of thing does not happen to gun control folks.
