Tragic accident caused by improper storage of the handgun. Either keep it on your person in such situations or stored safely away from children. Seems like this guy is going to have immense regret hanging over him for the rest of his life, awful.

This is tragic. It happened to my neighbor. It's been almost 10 years and I still can hear her screams and her carrying his body into the middle of the street begging for help. The family was never the same. It was horrific. He husband was Border Patrol. His firearm was holstered and up high. He set it down for a second to use the batheoom. Who know what happened in those couple of minutes but it changed a family for a lifetime.

You can't carry a gun and be an expert. Train and use common sense. Carry in a holster, never remove your firearm unless for its for usage or storage. Practice the firearms safety laws and these tragedies will be avoided.

Buying a gun is only the first step. The simple fact that this person thought it was okay to attend a child's birthday party with a loaded gun carelessly placed in a pocket shows that this person needed some serious firearm education. Fortunately, the felony that they are about to be convicted of will make sure they will never legally own a gun ever again. Violating that restriction will lead to some serious prison time.
