4 year old does the shooting… father is convicted..

What a hard situation — a child finds a handgun, shoots and hurts/kills someone.  Clearly, a 4 year-old can’t form the intent necessary to commit a gun crime.  If his parents hadn’t left their gun around like I leave my cell phone, the “accident” would never have happened.

In many ways, the father IS guilty — and I agree with the author of the article when they say that this is a message to folks who own guns that not being a responsible gun owner CAN (and perhaps should) land you in legal trouble.
