Apparently, if you take guns out of the equation, people start using knives? Now where have I heard this column of thought before?... Hmmm...

5 Toddlers, 1 Week...

Three little kids shot themselves to death accidentally when they got a hold of their parents' guns. Two others shot themselves in the head and are in critical condition.

HOUSTON, TEXAS (2)
[Image: 4E10937200000578-0-image-m-62_1531152712614.jpg]
^ Christopher Williams Jr, 2 years old, lost his life after he found a 9mm pistol on the couch in the living room of his Houston home and accidentally shot himself. Rest in Peace.

Police believe the pistol belonged to Junior's father, Christopher Charles Williams. Both Williams Sr and his wife will be interviewed by the Houston Police Department's Special Victims Division to determine how Junior was able to access the gun. Both parents were home at the time of the shooting.

Authorities have not yet determined if either parent will be charged with failing to make a weapon inaccessible to a child. https://kenh789.com/news/article-5934739...ead.n.html

Today, the 4-year-old stepson of a Houston cop shot himself with a gun left accessible in the home. The little boy is in "very critical condition" and fighting for his life. I hope he makes it. And, I doubt his stepfather will face any charges. https://www.chron.com/neighborhood/cyfai...064668.php

CALIFORNIA
Another 2-year-old died Saturday after shooting himself in the head with a pistol. Police in Fresno, Calif. say two adults were at home with the child at the time of the incident, but neither was a parent. Police are investigating who the gun belongs to and how the child gained access to it. It wasn't yet clear whether anyone would be charged. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/3-children-...ationwide/

SOUTH CAROLINA
Another 4-year-old who accidentally shot himself in the head is in critical condition after an incident at a Myrtle Beach, South Carolina resort.

Officers in Myrtle Beach were called to Oceans One Resort on Ocean Boulevard South Saturday night. Officers found a child who had been shot in one of the rooms at the resort. According to detectives, the child was playing in the room unattended when he got ahold of a handgun and accidentally shot himself. The handgun was in the purse of the child's mother.

Officers say the parents were in another room of the hotel suite while the child shot himself. The shooting has been ruled accidental. Detectives have charged the parents, Heather Odom, 30, and Jeremy Barrett, 34, with unlawful neglect of a child.

GEORGIA
Authorities in Georgia say another 4-year-old boy shot and killed himself Saturday morning in another apparent accident. Richmond County Chief Deputy Coroner Kenneth Boose Sr. tells newns outlets that Justin Foss Jr. was pronounced dead Saturday morning. Once again............the child apparently found the gun in a couch while he was at home.

Across the country, about 1,300 children die each year from firearm-related injuries, according to a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/3-children-...ationwide/

Effin' assholes need to secure their 'weapons' or 'tools' or whatever one wants to call them. And don't leave loaded guns hidden around the house, as if that would keep them away from little kids who just so happen to love exploring every nook and cranny.

All of the adult gun owners in these cases should be charged with neglect or a gun charge, as far as I'm concerned.

I would guess 75% of children that die from accidents are hispanic.
