    Fucking irresponsible parents, lock your weapons up when you have kids.

    9-month-old Missouri boy fatally shot by 5-year-old brother
    ELMO, Mo. (AP) _ A 9-month-old northwest Missouri boy is dead after being accidentally shot in the head by his 5-year-old brother.

    Nodaway County Sheriff Darren White says the baby was pronounced dead at Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City just before noon on Monday.

    The Kansas City Star reports emergency responders were called to an Elmo home at 8:58 a.m. on Monday after a 5-year-old found a loaded .22 caliber handgun and apparently was handling it when it fired.

    White says the bullet struck the 9-month-old, who was in a playpen.

    The sheriff says there is no reason to believe the tragedy was anything other than an accident.

    Maybe? How would he have gotten shot by a gun if there was no gun in the house?

    It is very sad.

    As are car crashes that kids die in every day.

    As are planes that fall from the sky.

    As are pool accidents that children fall into and drown.

    As are fireworks going off incorrectly and killing people every July.

    As are towers that fall in NYC killing people that committed the horrible crime of going to work.

    I'm sure that by tomorrow AM there will be anti-gun groups holding this slain child up as a martyr for their cause. They didn't care about him before and won't care about his living brother but they'll use his name.

    I think every new generation is missing the common sense gene!!
    Stupidity run amok!!
    What else is the reason for this crap? There have always been guns, but yet this is becoming more and more common.

    The parents should go to prison for this but they are already punished enough.

    Is it more common? This shit has always been going down. I don't look at stats on gun accident gun deaths in the home with children but I wonder if more media = more reporting of it.

    There was a movie in like 1980 or so called My Bodyguard. The big, bad bodyguard was a young man tortured by the fact he accidentally shot his brother when they were like seven and eight. Bad shit happening in the home didn't start in 1960, 1970, 1980, or 2010. Just always has been there sadly. Sometimes shit goes crazy.

    Yeah, let's not turn this into something that it isn't. It's a sad tragedy and one can only hope that those responsible are held accountable........I'm referring to the parents, of course. The bottom line is the kid would still be alive if there weren't guns in the house. That much, I think we can all agree on. RIP

    True dat on the RIP.
    Yeppers. I'm not looking for screaming pro or anti gun screaming match over it. It is shame.

    I have several guns in the house. There have been times I wear my sidearm as I go up and down the stairs. I don't have any kids. If I did I think I'd have to lock them up (guns...not the kids).

    I know of 2 incidents of teenagers accidentally shooting their friends, one incident was in the 70's and one in the 80's.

    Just kids sitting around looking at a loaded gun and having it go off.

    I'm all for owning guns, I have several myself but, people need to understand the need to store them safely, especially with young kids and even teens in the house.

    Just another sad and preventable ending to a young life.

    I guess it's the same argument against pedophiles. They've been around forever but now we want to keep our kids in a protective bubble.
    Parents getting investigated bc they let their kids WALK to the neighborhood park- it's getting a little crazy.
    I guess I'm a hypocrite cuz I've been guilty of driving my kids everywhere but I've also felt guilty for letting them walk down the street. It feels like you can't win these days..

    I sometimes wonder if a lot of these crimes/accidents with kids are less likely to happen now than in decades past but much more in the limelight now. Hell, when Adam Walsh got kidnapped the family almost couldn't get anyone to do much of anything about it.

    you're close, but the bottom line is if these morons didn't procreate the kid would never have been born.

    Just because you can reproduce, doesn't mean you should.
