Talk about jumping to conclusions!!!!!
Can you think of a single good reason for a 2 year old to have sustained gunshot injuries?
Happens quite often in the states. I shouldn't need to explain as it so obvious .... gun accidents do happen. Sibling plays with gun/ child plays with gun/ or gun accidentally discharges.
To assume it is a case of child abuse is a little over the top.
Pfft, it's child abuse if you leave a LOADED gun where a child can get access to it.
As per the TOPIC, you are FAILING TO PROTECT YOUR CHILD if you leave them with access to a gun.
/me shakes my head.
If I let my child climb a tree at the park that has 'no climbing' sign and the child climbs it and breaks their arm is that child abuse?
I don't think so...stupidity yes, but not abuse.
Abuse to me me is not feeding the child, or beating them. That is intentionally causing harm to the child.
If this case the child finds a hidden gun and kills themself or a sibling then it is more of an accident as noone intended the child to be harmed.
Firearms MUST be stored in approved lockers with ammunition stored separately.
