Guns don’t kill people, toddlers do? I may be biased due to the adorable little gremlin that wreaks havok in our house…

I’m sure I should not let myself get this emotionally invested in this story, but I genuinely feel like crying for the other part of the collapsed waveform where the three-year-old never gets to see their dad again because of something they did.

I wonder how close this bullet came to taking off the dad’s testicles?

Only an asshole leaves an unsecured, loaded gun where a toddler can reach it. Hopefully, this new asshole he’s had installed will let enough light in to where his head is stuck that he’ll see the error of his ways.

Too late in any case, since he’s already reproduced.

I think the phrase “family gun” says it all.

Hooray for the Price of Freedom©. Extremely cheap at this price.

Much, much more expensive at other times.

As though we needed proof that toddlers are the most dangerous humans on the planet.

If it’s any consolation, I’d consider it being something the dad (presumably the person who’s supposed to be in control of the gun) did. You can’t blame a toddler for being endangered by their family.

His dignity, however, was pronounced dead at the scene.
