Wisconsin Man Gets Probation for Gun Availibility to Kids

Bone receives probation in child shooting case:

Local Fox news reports
A Green Bay father whose son shot his sister after he left the two home alone was sentenced Friday.
Bone will have a year of probation and serve 200 hours of community service.
Authorities say Bone showed his children where the gun was for emergencies.
While home alone the 11-year-old boy got the gun because he thought someone was breaking in. The little sister got shot accidentally and, no thanks to the super-responsible dad, survived. She was lucky, to say the least.
But wait till you hear the judge's pronouncement.
Judge McKay also ordered Bone to stay away from drugs, alcohol and guns during his probation.
I suppose what that really means is AFTER his probation he still has to stay away from drugs.
What's your opinion? Hasn't David Bone demonstrated sufficiently that he's incapable of owning guns safely?  What kind of gun owner tells the kids where the gun is, just in case? 
Let me answer that.
Many of our favorite gun-rights advocates are like that. They've taught their young children how to handle guns, They themselves boast of having been indoctrinated young and they turned out OK. They live in a fantasy world of ever-impending attack, hell, it would be irresponsible NOT to tell the kids where the gun is.
How much you wanna bet that Judge J.D. McKay is a gun lover and a 2A supporter? Who else would even consider letting a guy like Bone own guns again in the future.
What's your opinion? Please leave a comment.
