"We recommend to every resident, make sure that you have your guns and loaded weapons in a locked, secure place that's away from any child. When we do that, we have a more secure home and secure environment"

so much for being "responsible"!

I suppose it's not totally impossible, but I don't really see how a 2 year old could pick up a gun and fire it. Maybe if it was laying there loaded and cocked. I don't believe a 2 year old could pull a double action trigger. i also find it hard to believe they could disengage the safety of a single action. It might be possible with a Glock type safety. I am just wondering if someone was holding the childs hand as the gun was fired.

A regretable and sad story, a life loss due to someone being careless with a firearm. I'am sure ever anti gun politician in the state of Texas, will be using this issue as fodder, to further their agenda against responseable gun owners.:(

There is more to this story than we know.

It just doesn't smell right.

"Thorpe said her fiancé's shooting death makes no sense and that she has a lot of unanswered questions.

"I can't see how a 2-year-old could pull the trigger," Thorpe said.

Collins' family members said they do not know the toddler involved, but said they believe the child was the son of a friend."


Who is the witness here?

Who is this so called friend?

We are not alone when we question that a 2 year old can pull the trigger.


Can you spell "Scape Goat"?
