If there are no consequences for her actions --
the gun may leave the house next time!
Wake up people! There has to be discipline for our kids!

Umm, I think they meant there would be no "legal" consequences. I doubt that grandpa just let this pass. He almost lost a granddaughter.

Guns should be outlawed. Let's change the US Constitution. Perhaps there should be legal consequences for grandpa leaving a gun within reach of a minor. All this could have been avoided if owning a gun were illegal.

I told all of you morons that there was more to this story than she let on. All of you gun control Libs were crying for the innocent victim of yet another attack with a gun. You were half right, SHE should not own a gun.

"The gun fell out of her purse and discharged, striking her in the face."
The bullet ripped through Amber's left cheek, nasal cavity and upper lip, according to an Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department report"

I copied the first paragraph from the article... Some how, this doesnt make sense to me, so please help me understand. Maybe I am missing something... How could the bullet go through her left cheek then through her nasal cavitiy and then exit through her upper lip if the bullet came from the ground up as a result of her dropping the gun to the ground? Is there something that I am just not getting...?

Everyone should be required to own a gun and know how to use it. Survival of the fittest, survival of the fittest.
