Another tragic reminder to secure your firearm.
And a reminder to teach your children about firearm safety.
This is a sad and tragic story. The guest left the gun in the car to hopefully keep it out of the wrong hands and keep it secured from anyone in the house. It may have been better off keeping it on his person. How did the little girl make it to the guest vehicle which was outside parked? A lot of details still to come out in this incident. I pray for healing during this time. These families will be broken.
I once had a sobering incident with a child who gained access to a firearm while I was driving. It turned into an educational moment for both of us, but it could have gone this way if I had not taken some prior precautions. Scary.
Very sad and tragic, this is why i invested in a lock box for my vehicles.
Prob. went to honk every vehicle parked in the driveway. 3 years old!
If you are going to leave an unsecured firearm in the car at least lock the doors!
Sad that a young girl lost her life.
Even sadder how this incident can change one’s personal view of guns.
