Parental fail. Seriously, what kind of idiots would leave a gun out with a three-year-old in the house, never mind that the three year old had it in her head that guns were toys.
Plus the cord keeps the slide from coming all they way foward and thus keeping the hammer from tripping.Kermi said:Yeah, that'd be my guess - run a cord through the empty grip and chamber to show it is completely devoid of bullets and cannot be fired.nagi said:It's not a wire but a plastic strap. I'm not in the force, but two guesses would be: hanging/handling the evidence without touching it directly and/or showing that it has been emptied.CINN4M0N said:Me too. Why is the real gun got wires coming out of it?AboveUp said:Geez... Anyone investing in that kind of WiiMote add-ons should be questioned.
If the article didn't tell me which gun was real, I would've said it was the lower one.
And, for added safety, they should have a damn trigger lock when not using the gun. And how about putting it the hell away?Tommy_Dizzle said:guys, i just had a great idea. you know that console where you point at stuff and it does stuff?
how about if the controller was a replica of a real GUN. HOW COOL WOULD THAT LO-
this is where the dude should've been slapped in the face and sent packing. Terrible idea, gents.
Also, why wasnt the safety on?
It isn't. I'm no gun advocate, I don't even live in America. I am sort of against gun owning, but the point is, this it the fault of the parents, not the government.Lim3 said:Its America's fault for giving the public easy access to firearms.
Because she's three years old. Nine times out of ten when you hand a three year old a gun they or someone else gets shot.AkJay said:She shot herself...
Even if it actually turned out to be a real gun, why would she have shot herself?
Not to mention that video-games are in NO WAY involved (seeing as it was the step-father who left a loaded gun on the nightstand.
Don't even start.Lim3 said:Its America's fault for giving the public easy access to firearms.
Your kidding me!!? What is wrong with them this is still the parents fault? Its criminal negligence at the very least!? What kind of parnet leaves a loaded unsecured weapon lying on the table with an infant in the house? This accident was completely avoidable and the mother "getting off the hook" because it looked like a wii remote is unbelieveable. And the stepfather, what he came down with a gun ready to shoot somebody but forgets to put it back in the safe and instead leaves it on a table within reach of a child? These parents are poster material for bad parents who keep guns in the house with children and yet they are scapegoating a replica wii-mote instead of stringing them up as examples. Im at a loss, I really am.Austin MacKenzie said:The police have filed no charges
