    So is the father getting prison time since it's his gun or is he bailing out on his responsibility to care for his kids?

    "I have a knot in my chest. They won't even let me see my daughter. I wanted to hold my daughter for one last time."

    One last time makes it sound like he won't see her again...I wouldn't have thought she'd go into care since this is a tragic accident.

    Ban guns or ban babies, you can't have both.
    Controversially, I support a crack-down on baby ownership.

    She was dumb enough to leave her gun lying around, and she paid the price for it.

    From what I understand it was 'his' gun. So there is nothing to say whether she knew there was a loaded gun in the back seat or not. She is a victim, as is the child.

    Only in 'Murica.

    TBH considering how many handguns there are in American homes I am amazed this doesn't happen waaay more often.
    Ironically I suppose that is proof of general gun security.

    Nope, eugenics suggests I favour one sort of baby over the other. I dislike them all equally.

    Just because someone's done something stupid in the run up doesn't mean an unpleasant event isn't an accident.
