Tot Finds Dad's Pistol, Wounds Himself in the Hand

The Fort Worth three-year-old is now out of the hospital after shooting himself in the hand over the weekend. Police were called late Saturday night when the toddler shot himself after discovering his father’s pistol in the man’s bedroom.  The bullet wound cost the boy part of a finger.  Lawrence Williams has been telling reporters he went to the store, leaving the boy in the care of an adult. Detectives have questioned Williams who claims he just recently gained custody of the boy and his five-year-old sister. Now, the children are in CPS foster care until this gets sorted out.

    This just infuriates me, not only just because due to his negligence he almost lost a son but also that jackasses like him give responsible gun owners a bad name!
