The case has created a lot of reaction from across the board, including on The Daily Item’s Facebook page. Here’s a taste of that:
The consensus seems to be that poor parental supervision may be to blame in this situation – although I would say it can be so easy to overlook something that other people think is obvious if you’re busy and frazzled, such as when trying to take care of a house and at least two young children.
And only about 5 posts blaming “the media” – that’s a win in my book.
Anyway, you can read more at dailyitem.com, but the company that made the gun isn’t commenting until a full investigation is complete.
What’s your take on situation? Do we need stricter gun laws or was this just a tragic accident?
