    Horrible, horrible story. I do not believe this boy will ever be happy in his life.

    IMO, anyone who allows minors access to their weapons should be fully accountable for their deeds. I.e. the one who allowed the weapon to be accessible in this case should be charged with homicide.

    Poor child. He'll be tramautized for life.

    I send my condolences to the kid and his family.

    That's truly tragic. I couldn't imagine how the family feels. And even though it does sound like an accident, the parents need to either get rid of their guns or learn how to keep them well away from their child.

    I think the five year old will be okay in the long run, although it depends on how the parents handle the situation now.

    I have years of weapons training. I would never keep one in my house. People need to realize that you are far more likely to kill yourself, or your family with one, then an intruder, or foriegn army.

    And how many times will a weapon be used in self-defense without a shot being fired much killing the criminal?

    The figure is between 1.5 and 2.5 million times a year that a firearm is used in self-defense.

    The overwhelming majority of time the weapon is not fired or does not result in the death but only the wounding of the attacker.

    Also if you look at the number of weapons in homes and the number of accidents with weapons it will show the figure is low especially when looked at against other types of accidents.

    However as I stated in my first post the parent or parents should be and can be legally held accountable.
