I have just read this article about a 5 year old boy accidentally shooting and killing his 2 year old sister.

I would like to know what your opinions are on guns in the USA - seeing as you're all Americans.
To me, I just don't get it.

How about the fact that it was an actual gun designed to look like a toy, called "My First Rifle"?

It's a terrible tragedy, but they talk about it like it was an unavoidable accident, which it most certainly was not.Crickett Firearms manufacturers youth rifles under the logo My First Rifle?. They sell both traditional youth .22 rifles and those colored bright pink, blue, and multi-color red, white and blue.

Agreed. I know views can be regional but I don't let my 4 year old drive a car so why in the world would I give them a gun and leave them unattended with it. I cannot imagine my mother saying it was my child's time to go. How weird.
That poor little girl.

Not that it matters to me really, because the real issue is that the child was left alone with the gun. My opinion wouldn't change on that whether the gun had a nice wood finish or was bright pink.
Shoot, I thought this was going to be about biceps.
This is clearly the mother's fault. You don't leave a gun sitting in the corner with a 5 and 2 year old in the house. Even if the gun belonged to the 5 year old he shouldn't be shooting it without adult supervision and then it should have been put in a safe place the rest of the time.
