The Cons EOM, I think there was a pause after the first segment but the report continued for another 20 minutes.
The ABC report continued with the accidental deaths of two young children whose parents thought they had their guns under control and had instructed their children about gun safety. One death occurred on a farm in a barn where a loaded gun was kept. The other happen in a neighborhood when a 5 year old shot and killed his 4 year old friend who lived next door. Young children are naturally curious as well as incapable of truly understanding the deadly consequences of playing with a loaded gun.
A mother, very ignorant in my opinion, seemed surprised that leaving a loaded hand gun on the dinning room table, so it was ready at all times, was actually picked up and handled by a very young visiting cousin and touched by her daughter while Mom was in another room. And that a loaded assault-like rifle leaning against the kitchen wall had profoundly bothered her young daughter. Mom was clueless with how reckless that was.
Another women kept her loaded shotgun in the closet and forgot to tell her son that the alarm was on when he went out that night. He set the alarm off and she had the loaded shot gun ready to shoot her intruder until her son called out to his Mom.
My take away from this discussion and the ABC report is that when a person is motivated by the fear of an outside attack feels empowered by the sanctity of the 2nd amendment they sound very similar to how most of us sounded when we had bought into the dogma of the WTBTS or any other high control group. We had our answers and we closed our minds.
The gun culture generates as much danger for children because parents don't realize the potential dangers or don't want to see them. Apparently most people don't secure their weapons out of fear they will not be able to arm themselves when needed.
