A mother in Elmo Mo called 911 to report her 5 year old shot her nine month old with a paint ball gun. Except it was a .22 and the nine month old died. The police say the gun belonged to a relative and no charges have been filed yet. WTH?????? Poor babies

ETA: The gun was indeed a .22 caliber magnum rifle.

This pisses me off. Guns need to be locked up and out of childrens reach. This happens way to often. Fucking stupid gun owners.

We are a gun loving family. But I love and value my children more. We have a gun safe and our kids know better than to ever touch a weapon. I am sad for this family, but more angry with their ignorance to gun safety.

While it is the gun owners irresponsibility that ended up in a tragedy do not forget the parents role in this.  


I have a 5yo he knows not to touch guns, lighters, matches ect.  He knows he is to come find an adult & bring them to the item - not to pick the item up & bring it to an adult.   Its about teaching your kid basic safety so you can feel safer letting them at a friends, grandparents, family members house without constantly being in sight.
