this is so tragic. The gun belonged to the little boy and was given to him as a gift. It was stored in the corner of a room (!?) and his family had "no reason to believe there was a shell casing in it."

So otherwise, it would be totally okay for him to pretend to shoot his sister with a REAL gun?

Guns are not toys. They shouldn't be around small children unlocked. The End.

Heart-breaking.

And totally fucking idiotic of the adults - not that they deserve this to happen but how stupid to let a kid have access to a gun without knowing whether it was loaded or not. Or actually, allowing access to an unloaded gun would teach a kid that guns are safe. I've never seen a gun in my entire life and I doubt our kids will, but we have taught them never to touch a gun if they see one and to tell a safe adult at once.

Dear God, I would just die. I don't know how parents can stand knowing that they were that slack/negligent by just leaving a damn gun lying around. Who the heck gets a real gun as a gift for a 5 year old? :angry-banghead: They are going to need so much therapy to process and deal with the guilt of knowing that because of their poor decision their little girl is dead. I have to wonder if there will be legal consequences for the parents? My heart goes out to the little boy. I know he didn't mean to hurt his sister. I hope he gets some serious help to deal with all the emotional fallout of a tragic accident. Such a tragic situation, and so damn avoidable.

The poor boy. I can't imagine growing up with something like that to schlepp along in my mind and heart.

Those parents are absolutely horrible and they don't deserve children.

The Mom says she was only outside for minute you left your kids alone in the house with a loaded gun in reach well I guess they claim they didn't it was loaded but that's how fast it happeneds it a takes a minute.The gun should be locked safely away from the children reach even if it was the kids gun he should have only had access to it when a parent had eyes on to watch him using it and even then a 5 year old is to young to have it.

oh my...sorry to parrot everyone else but I do. not. understand. why the HELL would you buy a real gun as a gift for a little boy? What kind of messed up thinking is involved in that thought process? And even if you do why oh why would you leave it within his reach?

I just...can't. :angry-banghead:

      Disgusted with Catholic Church over Cardinal Pell's funeral this week. It really reflects poorly on the church and should be a red flag to Catholics.

      I've been away since about 10 PM on Monday evening.  My husband noticed that my speech was a bit slurred, called my daughter to see if she concurred and they both agreed that I needed to go to the hospital.  There I was taken back within minutes to be evaluated for a stroke.   My BP was sky-high. I. undressed and was helped into a hospital gown.  The PureWick did not work that night so when I had to go I just went.  (I do want a PureWick if I ever get urinary stress incontenence though and would need to wear diapers.). 
      I had a CT scan fairly early the next morning and it confirmed that I'd sufffered a mild stroke,  I had an MRI that afternoon which confirmed the both the mild stroke and no other damage and yet I had another CT scan -this time with a contrast medium injected.  I was allowed the Heart Healthy diet and my BP had dropped to 180/100.  They don'y want to drop the BP too rapidly so it has dropped enough to turn to Lisinipril to drop it further.
      After the ER. I was sent to the ICU and stayed until I was discharged this afternoon.  The staff were all really nice and my husband and two daughters were with me most of the time, helping out.  My oldest daughter's van was in the shop so I let her borrow the MINI since I knew she could drive a stick.  When she was visiting yesterday afternoon, her husband was in the ER waiting on a CT can and today, she was there when the speech pathologist was visiting.  She was able to get some good advice from her as her husband is currently unable to swallow.
      Anyway I'm home.  My dogs and the cat to see me home, especially my dachsie, were happy to see me home.
      A couple of things I learned:
      I need to teach my husband about loading the dishwasher.
      and 
      Jill would never be able to handle bedpans.

      I highly recommend Not the Good Girl's Youtube channel. She is making great documentaries about cults.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.
