    FL - Yanelly 'Nelly' Zoller, 4, dies reaching into her grandmother's purse, Sept 2017

    TAMPA — One day last week, 4-year-old Yanelly Zoller reached into her grandmother's purse looking for candy, her father says.

    Instead, she found a gun. She accidently pulled the trigger and was shot in the chest.

    Shane Zoller, 22, is the father of three children: one living, another on the way and the little girl he will bury today.

    "She just wanted some damn candy," Zoller said Wednesday..

    This could've been VERY easily prevented. Poor girl.

    This is why strict rules on gun ownership are required.

    Wowwwww... how terribly sad

    I most certainly bet the grandma will have some amount of deep regret, for the rest of her time alive.

    Common sense is completely lacking in our culture today.


    Something has to be done. These morons have to start being tossed in prison to rot and it might be enough of a deterrent to prevent at least a handful of similar tragedies.

    This girl died for absolutely nothing. Nothing will be done of course and then it's on to the next senseless tragedy....and then the one after that.....

    Grandma kept a loaded gun in her purse, even when small children were around. It was a stupid thing to do.
    Nothing will be done, because nothing can be done about it.
    Governments cannot legislate against stupidity.

    While posters keep talking about Grandma, and while it is true she is a Grandma--actually it looks like Christie Zoller is only 41 years old (Shane, her son, is 22):

    Lots of people do that. People with conceal carry licenses. When I ask about it they say they have to access it quickly. But usually they have it on their hip or whatever.

    I think people are really convinced that having a loaded gun at hand is safer than not. And they mistrust the stats that say it's the opposite.

    I have a colleague who has loaded guns all over the house. And his office. And on him. And he has two kids. Says they're well trained. He throws a gun in their laps and they know how to take it apart and see if it's loaded. It's freaky.
