No, it’s not just a crazy accident. No four/five year old should have a real gun!
A FIVE-year-old boy who was playing with a .22 caliber rifle he’d been given as a gift accidentally shot and killed his two-year-old sister in their Kentucky home
the children’s mother was cleaning the house at the time and had stepped outside onto the porch
The rifle had been given to the boy last year and was kept in the corner of a room. The parents didn’t realise a shell had been left in it.

Again, I use this as an example of why schools should remain gun free zones. Mistakes will be made. Lives will be lost. And mark my words, no armed teacher, staff member, or janitor will stop an active shooter…it just doesn’t happen that way.
