Another day, another toddler killed by firearms

Houston Chronicle: Police say a 2-year-old boy has died after accidentally shooting himself in the head at a North Texas home while his father was nearby.

Corsicana police on Thursday identified the victim as Kinsler Davis.

Police Chief Randy Bratton says the father called 911 on Wednesday night to report the shooting. The wounded boy was transported to a Corsicana hospital and then on to a Dallas hospital where he died later Wednesday.

Bratton says the boy apparently found a handgun in a bedroom. The child’s 35-year-old father was in the walk-in closet of the bedroom at the time of the shooting.
These things will happen, right? I mean, the occasional dead kid is just the price you pay to keep kids safe, right? Sure, that makes sense. After all, this is just an isolated incident. It’s not like this happens all the time.

I have it on good authority that the gun nuts are tired of seeing stories like this. Hey, join the club. The difference here is I’d rather do something to prevent these incidents and they’d rather everyone just ignored them.
