The Four Basic Rules of Firearms Safety*
1. All guns are always loaded.
Treat every gun as if it was loaded, at all times, no matter what.
Think and BELIEVE every time the gun is handled, it could fire.
2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
Be conscious of the direction your muzzle is pointed at all times.
This includes at yourself, any other person, animal, or property unless you are either intending to or do not care about destroying or killing that person/object.
NEVER handle a gun behind other people or bend over with a gun in your hand on a shooting range.
3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are aligned with the target.
Pay attention to what you are doing while handling a firearm.
DO NOT let your finger contact the trigger until the gun is on target.
4. Be sure of your target and its surroundings.
Pay attention to what is going on around your target.
YOU are responsible for the terminal resting place of the bullet, intentionally fired or not, no matter what happened.
*Base rules from Col. Jeff Cooper, American Pistol Institute, 1977

and...keep telling your 5 year old to listen and go by, yeah right. We are talking about children here, so how about the adults keeping the guns out of reach and site for others to get a hold of.

The "Cricket" is a bolt-action single-shot rifle. This one was without a doubt left loaded with a bullet in the chamber. Does it have a safety? The parents are at fault, which they will live with for the rest of their lives, and that of the little boy who will be bothered and burdened by guilt for killing his little sister. Another tragic accident to be remembered and spread to reduce and limit future dead...which we all expect yet dread.
