A sad story here in Central Ohio of a 3 year old that shot himself in the head with a .45 and died. The toddler's mother on 911 told the dispatcher it was on top if the TV where he "where he usually can't reach it" (sic). Now a toddler is dead in what the Knox County Sheriff is calling "an unfortunate accident" - what I would call a negligent homicide. The family will grieve and then I am sure face some type of judicial punishment for such a lackadaisical manner of securing firearms. From the article...
The dispatcher asked Campbell how the toddler got the gun.“I don’t know if he climbed up ...,” Campbell said before trailing off. She continued: “ Oh, my God, he so knows better. He’s never touched a gun before. Never ever has he ever messed with a gun. He’s always known better.”
She said the gun was atop the television, “where he usually can’t reach it.”
