After the accidental shooting in Georgia last warning, police authorities issued a warning for parents regarding gun safety.
Last Sunday, a mother and her three kids decided to have lunch in Newnan. While in the middle of finishing their meals, one of the children, a two-year old kid, suddenly brought out his mother’s gun and fired it.
The gun was 9 mm handgun, which fortunately was held in place by screw.
However, the screw flew off and hit another one of the kids, an 11-year-old girl, in the leg.
Surgery was required to remove the screw from the girl’s leg. Her condition was deemed stable during her stay in the hospital.
Following the said incident, police warned parents that handguns are not properly equipped with safety device. Thus, it is very important for parents to keep such things out of reach of their kids.
Prior the incident, the infant managed to unzip his mom’s purse and access the compartment where the gun was stored.
Keep guns in a safe locked location, unloaded, out of the reach of kids
Be sure ammunition is kept separate and also locked.
Keys and combinations should be hidden and secret.
Keep everything out of view.
