"A 10-month-old baby was shot and killed by his father inside a Tennessee hotel room on Thursday, NewsChannel5 reported.

According to The Tennessean, police officers received the call about 6:42 p.m., and arrived at the Extended Stay America motel in Donelson three minutes later.

Once on scene, officers found the victim, Adam Bass, with a gunshot wound to his chest. Despite attempts to revive the baby, he was pronounced dead at the scene, Metro police spokesman Don Aaron said.

Police said the preliminary investigation showed that Adam's father, Larry Bass, 30, was handling his semi-automatic pistol inside the motel room when the gun unintentionally discharged.

Bass' wife, Jacquelin Bass, 28, and two other sons, ages 2 and 3, were also in the room during the incident, but no one else was injured.

At the time of the shooting, the family was living at the motel so Bass could work at the Nashville Music City Center, WKRN-TV reported. The family was originally from Texas.

Police are still processing the scene. So far, no charges have been filed."

As always, someone innocent is shot, many die like this 9-month old, but NEVER are charges filed against the legal, responsible gun owner. Never. Ever. Murder without consequences.

Wrong. If this guy did not have a gun in his hands he would not have a bullet in his head. Period. Guns do kill people ALL THE TIME!
No, he would have found another way to do it. Look at countries that outlawed guns. They now have record crimes with knives.

Ah yes, the tin-foil Republican NRA members weight in. Right, knives are just as dangerous as guns and are used in mass murders all the time. Aspirins too as some other wacko posted. The sad part is they actually believe their argument of equivalents will be believed by voters. Don't hold your breath there Republican wackos.

Look at the time frame and how many "mass murders" have occurred. That is less then .1% of the crime. So you want to take everyone's 2nd amendment right to own semi automatic rifles because of the .1% of the crime? Just like animals have teeth and claws to defend themselves, we have guns. Taking away what we have to defend ourselves is not the answer. Why pick on semi automatic rifles? There are a lot more dangerous things out that take more lives.

The next time one of these liberal hugged thugs are shot, all the shooter has to claim as a defense: "it wasn't me, your honor, the gun did it."
Guns are objects, tools...it's the people wielding them who do the damage. A baseball bat can be used as a weapon. Are you gonna outlaw them? How about tire irons? Innocent, law abiding citizens must have the right and the means to protect themselves. The cavalry doesn't always get there in time!

Your post stated that the incident was under investigation...not that charges would not be filed. Regardless, do you really think that father is psychologically getting off without consequence? He accidentally shot and killed his baby!

The gun didn't pull it's own trigger! The poor man was suicidal. Does anyone know what the statistics are on drive by shootings, armed robberies, home invasions, muggings, murders? We know they're happening frequently but I don't seem them in the news very much. Why not?

Did you or any of the other gun loony's think just maybe having guns around kids is not too damn smart? This is exactly what happens from time to time when you do. Maybe if he's made an example of, other gun loony's will think - yea, think!- before having guns around kids.

Anon, for every report of gun accidents you see there are probably a 100 million handlings of guns around other people without incidemt.

You liberals are worse than the few gun nuts we have on our side.
Read the following:

"If a conservative doesn't like guns, he doesn't buy one.

If a liberal doesn't like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.

If a conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn`t eat meat.

If a liberal is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.

If a conservative is homosexual, he quietly leads his life.

If a liberal is homosexual, he demands legislated respect.

If a conservative is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation.

A liberal wonders who is going to take care of him.

If a conservative doesnít like a talk show host, he switches channels.

Liberals demand that those they donít like be shut down.

If a conservative is a non-believer, he doesnít go to church.

A liberal non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced.(unless itís a foreign religion, of course)

If a conservative decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it.

A liberal demands that the rest of us pay for his.

If a conservative slips and falls in a store, he gets up, laughs and is embarrassed.

If a liberal slips and falls, he grabs his neck, moans like he's in labor and then sues."

You must be one of those Yankees or left coast liberals. Anyone raise around here was raised with a gun and respect for it.
