Gun Control?

This I am sure is going to piss off some people. But here are my feelings. I believe in the right to bear arms. I also believe there should be some sort of common sense involved in the people who do bear arms.

I don't believe that dumb asses should own guns, plain and simple. I was reading the news online and came across this story of a 2 year old who fatally shot himself in the eye, moments after his mother "warned him" not to touch the gun.

What mother in their right mind would allow a loaded gun in the same room with their child? Let alone on a freaking nightstand where it is in full view and access to him?!

I am sorry, but I believe the parents should be punished for this one, and thank goodness, they were arrested.

What are your opinions on this?

Here is the link to the story > Mother Warned 2 Year Old...

So sad. My father was a hunter when I was younger. I grew up with guns in my house, but they were kept safely locked away at all times...and they were never left loaded. It is beyond me how any parent could be so stupid as to:

1) leave a loaded gun lying around

2) think that simply telling a two year old not to touch it would be sufficient.

I disagree with various gun control laws, but I agree that people need to practice common sense and safety. At no time whatsoever should a firearm ever be accessible to a child. That is unacceptable. I am pro gun, pro second amendment, but I am also 100% for responsibility and safety.
