5-year-old girl fatally shot by friend while playing with gun

A 5-year-old girl from Georgia was accidentally shot and killed by her friend as the two played with a loaded gun last week. Jada Willingham and her friend were playing with the gun when the gun went off and a bullet struck Jada in the face. The 68-year-old babysitter was in another room at the time. The loaded 9mm Smith & Wesson belonged to the playmates’ mother.

Hate to say this but this is a glaring example of piss poor parenting. Why wasn't this child taught not to play with the gun? Why wasn't the gun stored where a child couldn't get to it? Why did her parents or caregiver take the gun away from them. This isn't because of the gun this poor child is gone because her parents FAILED her. They failed at all those things I mentioned and the poor girl paid the price for their failure.

The gun belonged to the mother, who was in the military. The 9mm pistol was stored loaded under the bed, on top of an ammo box. And without any trigger lock on the pistol, apparently. This is negligence on the mother's part.. but she is blaming everyone else. FTA: Keisha Walker demanded other adults should be held responsible for her daughter’s death. “The babysitter showed so much negligence when my daughter got shot,” Walker told the TV station.

Let’s blame the gun and RESPONSIBLE gun owners!!! Plain and simple example of ignorant parenting, prosecute the parents (or babysitter) for negligent homicide, murder, child endangerment or anything. Hold them responsible period, no excuses. The charges should be escalated due to the fact that the gun owner is military and has extensive training and definitely knows better!!! People TEACH YOUR KIDS GUN SAFETY!!! I could load every single gun in my home with the safety off and my kids know they don’t touch them, they won’t even touch an empty case to even know if there’s a gun in there and they also know very well how to use every gun in my arsenal, safely and responsibly, gun education saves lives, and so do guns...
