    Louisiana Girl, 5, Fatally Shoots Self While Playing With Gun

    by Phil Helsel

    A 5-year-old girl died in Louisiana on Saturday after she apparently shot herself with a handgun, authorities said.

    St. John the Baptist Parish sheriff's deputies were called to the home in LaPlace at around 9:44 a.m. and the child's father said she shot herself while playing with the gun, the sheriff's office said in a statement.

    "The father said he was taking a shower when he heard a gunshot," sheriff's Lt. Greg Baker told NBC affiliate WDSU in New Orleans. "He got out of the shower, and that's when he discovered that his daughter had accidentally shot herself."

    The girl was rushed to a hospital but died of her injuries. Detectives said the gun was unsecured, the sheriff's office said...

    Again? What the hell is wrong with people who don't secure their loaded guns near children? Can't spare one minute to remove the bullets or put it in a safe place?

    [Next-door neighbor Joy] Ursin told WDSU that the children’s parents are divorced and that they stay with their father every other weekend.

    She told the Times-Picayune that Moore is a responsible parent who took gun safety seriously.

    She told WDSU that Moore’s children were “aware” of their father’s guns but that anytime they were in his home, he put the firearms away.

    Seriously. Just put the dang things away if you're not using them! Why won't people learn?!

    Angry

    That's all I have to say.
    This is the year to locate Mark Dribin http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...ht=Mark+Dribin NamUs MP#876 and Ilene Misheloff http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...lene+Misheloff NamUs MP#6410 and bring them home to their families!

    Parents watch your children. Free-range parenting leads to more child victims.

    Cruelty to humans begins with cruelty to animals.

    I believe in closure, not forgiveness. I'm also unapologetically judgemental.

    No charges in shooting death of 5-year-old LaPlace girl

    The father of a 5-year-old LaPlace girl who fatally shot herself with his gun won't face criminal charges in her death.
    ...
    The grand jury "found insufficient evidence to find probable cause to charge him with a crime," St. John District Attorney Bridget Dinvaut said.
    ...
    Authorities say Haley Moore found the loaded gun on a table inside the house where it had been left unsecured, and fatally wounded herself May 21.
    If a child dies in a car accident because she wasn't in a car seat or buckled up are her parents (or the drivers) typically charged?
