Recommended Posts

A 2-year-old boy was shot when the toddler found an unsecured handgun at his residence in Asheboro, N.C. on Saturday just before 2 p.m.

The child reportedly saw his father’s 45 caliber handgun in the parents’ bedroom and put it in his mouth, and it fired. The mother, father and three older siblings were at home at the time.
The Courier Tribune reports, “Randolph County Sheriff’s Det. M. Reynolds said the father rushed the child to Randolph Hospital. He was then transported to Brenner Children’s Hospital in Winston-Salem. Reynolds said the latest information from the hospital was that the child was expected to survive.”
Reynolds said, “This was a very tragic accident. It is so fortunate that the little boy is expected to survive.”
Sheriff’s Capt. Derrick Hill said that the bullet missed vital arteries in the neck and head, as well as the child’s spinal cord.
The parents or child’s names have not been released.
WBTW reports, “The Randolph County Sheriff’s Office and the district attorney will decide if the parents should be charged for leaving the pistol improperly locked.”

More moral decay. The father deserves whatever is headed his way. I pray CPS removes the child after he recovers.

Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !

Man, if only that 2 year old would hae had a gun to protect himself from his parents. Oh, wait...

I blame the parents for not properly training the toddler how to use and care for a handgun. By gun nut standards, this kid was about 2 years older than most kids who are properly trained.
