TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - A five-year-old girl who shot herself in the chest with a .40-caliber handgun Sunday afternoon has died, said Northwest Fire Capt. Adam Goldberg. The incident was reported at 12:24 p.m.
Goldberg said Reese Hotten and her mother were visiting family friends when the girl found the loaded gun and fired it.
The adults in the home began CPS and the girl was taken to a hospital, where she died at 1 p.m. The death was determined to be accidental.
Goldberg said cautioned parents who are visiting in others' homes to ask about firearms and whether they are locked up and out of the reach of children.
That's nice. Fire Capt. Adam Goldberg said the guns should be locked up and you should ask about that when visiting. How about if we lock up the owner of the gun? How about if we enforce common-sense gun laws about the proper and secure methods for storing guns in the home?
In Arizona, I realize, such a thing is not even possible. This is the result.
Why is it so difficult for those who support lenient gun laws in places like Arizona to understand why I blame them?
By the way, are the call letters of this station a joke? Do they choose them like personalized license plates?
