Another needless tragedy…
Would the average person leave a butcher knife where a three year old could get it? Or prescription medicine? How about an open fireplace with a fire burning? Or drop the child off in the middle of a busy freeway? Ridiculous you say? No more ridiculous than leaving a loaded gun unlocked and unattended. Wishful thinking won’t keep a child safe. It’s no different than the gun owner shooting the child themselves. I can’t think of anything more negligent. People wonder why there are so many anti-gun supporters. They don’t have control of such events, and it scares them. Gun owner’s have control. Use it wisely, or give your guns to someone who is more responsible.
You know, I’ve always had this thought that this could only happen to someone else, you know you only hear about these things, but when it hits home it’s hard.
–Kimberly’s maternal grandfather
Everyone that this kind of tragedy happens to thinks it could only happen to someone else. If you leave your guns laying around when children are in the house, you’re playing Russian Roulette with their lives.
An Irondale family is grieving the loss of a 9-year-old girl, who police say was accidentally shot and killed by her 3-year-old brother.
Watson said Kimberly’s brother got hold of a loaded gun on a nightstand at his great-grandparents’ home in the 2300 block of Monroe Drive around 1:30 p.m. Saturday.
The boy accidentally shot Kimberly while she was sitting on the floor in a bedroom.
Don’t let it happen to you. I don’t care if you buy my recording or not…
