    BOCA RATON, Fla. Authorities say a 7-year-old girl accidentally shot her sleeping mother twice in a South Florida neighborhood, but the woman is expected to recover.

    Authorities say 38-year-old Sharda Brijmohan was asleep in her bedroom Friday when her daughter walked over to a nightstand and picked up a handgun. Authorities say it accidentally fired. She was shot once in the forearm and once in the neck.

    Paramedics drove the woman to Delray Medical Center, where she's expected to recover.

    This is a little hard to believe. Obviously guns don't just go off. I can see someone accidently firing a gun once. But twice? Something funny is going on.

    Hard to believe that the gun went off twice. Interesting to hear the whole story when details become available.

    I want a picture of a gun with arms that it uses to squeeze its own trigger whenever it finds itself in a dangerous situation being handled by someone with few witnesses around.

    Most guns spend the majority of their time sitting in holsters, sitting on tables, or hanging in racks. Yet, it's odd that these guns never go off while just sitting around. You never hear, "It was just sitting there, and BOOM! It fired!" Miraculously, it's always the 0.0001% of the time in the gun's existence that someone happens to be holding it. With those kinds of odds, these people should try playing the lottery.

    Of course, they're probably just leaving out the part about, "And then I touched the trigger...well...I guess I accidentally squeezed it..."

    The heck with that. I am still trying to find the ones that say don't worry about unloading before cleaning or don't bother to check if it is unloaded before removing slide.

    Both of those situations seem to be much more common than guns going off by themselves. How many people will not buy a gun becasue you have to pull the trigger to field strip it?

    The dumbed down general public has been trained to believe that guns go off by themselves. I'd bet this girl gets off clean.
    This is obviously foul play involved.

    Regardless of how it went off in the first place, who in the world would leave a loaded handgun on a nightstand with a 7 year old in the house? That is just plain stupidity.

    My opinion on this is that the kid saw the mother sleeping, so she picked the gun up and having learned that guns are toys, promptly decided to "shoot" her mother - ie, it was intentional but she probably didn't know what effect a real gun actually has. It's plausible that after the first shot, she panicked and accidentally squeezed the trigger again.

    First off, children should not learn that guns are toys. Some will say that children need to have fun, and I agree - but if they're being raised to learn to shoot, that "guns are not toys" philosophy should come in handy reasonably soon. There's lots of better candidates available for actual toys.

    Secondly, what moron leaves a gun out lying around when there's a 7-yr old running the house? Don't be stupid.
