Poor baby, bless his heart. May God comfort this baby boy and bring him through it at his will! Stuff like this can be prevented! I just wish people would use their brains to prevent it!

Welcome to Whitmire, folks!

"Playing with a BB gun and it accidentally went off". If you are playing with a BB gun, it is not usually accidents that make is go off. Still yet, why play with it and no supervision.

I'm so glad that the baby will be OK.

All I can think of, though, is John Candy and Chevy Chase in American Vacation with his BB gun on the roller coaster, when Clark Griswold said to Candy, "This is a Magnum PI. It could get under the skin and cause a very, very bad infection."

And then he pops him one right in the butt.

I've seen young children killed by a BB gun,some of them are as powerful as a .22 cal.Luckily this child will be o.k.

It cannot "accidentally" go off unless it was loaded and pumped in the first place. The [email protected] who left it out like that deserves a smack in the head for being such an irresponsible monster.

I do not understand why he had the BB gun. Do parents not watch children anymore?

Letting a 5 year old child have a loaded BB gun around a 2 year old is not an accident, it's neglect. No doubt the parents are grieving but a little common sense could have prevented this from happening. Too bad the child had to suffer for his parent's stupidity. I guess Ralphie got what he wanted for Christmas.

Letting anyone but an adult have access to a BB gun is stupid. They are dangerous and teach bad habits. No toy guns and no BB guns.

this is a really sad story, there should have been some adult supervision. especially with a bb gun present; knowing how crazy this world is that would have been the safest thing to do! Besides a 9 year old should not have a bb gun around especially when a 2 year old is in the room

I hope this little boy gets a full recovery. Somebody needs to watch their children a little closer.. although accidents do happen and I think we should have the right to have a gun.. I don't think guns and kids mix. All guns should be locked up so that kids can't get ahold of them. If the aunt didn't know the kids had the gun, I hope she tore their butts up for bringing it into her house.
