If this guy were not a cop, he would be charged with a crime. If his grandson had killed himself with this unattended, loaded firearm, I have to wonder if they would have charged him.

Scary that a cop doesn't have a gun safe or that he at least takes the gun apart and store the pieces separately.

My father in law was a cop. He was working the night shift and sleeping in the evening before work. In his sleep he got up, picked up his weapon and fired! Luckily the family was on the front porch and no one was injured. After that the gun was dismantled and put in 2 different places.

I'm so glad the child was not more seriously injured.
