Was it worth it, just to have gunz in the house with small children?

Both parents were felons; gun was in a bag ON THE FLOOR.

She'll do time, but she won't do that much time. CPS will probably give the kids back when she's paroled.

Poor kids.

Beside all the other truly inept gun BS in this story. How in the world is a 2yr old able to have the strength to pull that trigger. There should be a minimum force standard that would not allow small children to be able to pull the trigger. If all the other 10 layers of safety have been ignored, or over come.

This is horrible, but it's a story that's repeated again and again.

Too many guns, too many lax gun laws, too many irresponsible gun owners, too many parents who don't lock up guns, too many unsupervised little kids.
