Washington Police said a woman was cleaning a gun in her Tacoma apartment early Sunday when it fired into the unit above her where a family was sleeping. A one-year-old and a three-year-old child were asleep in the apartment when the shot was fired through the floor.
No one was injured when the gun fired about 12:20 a.m.
Tacoma police spokeswoman Loretta Cool said, the woman was booked into jail on suspicion of reckless endangerment.
You know what the problem is, though? When a negligent gun owner is charged with first-offense reckless endangerment, they plea-bargain it down to something milder and end up keeping the guns. This kind of negligence should get the full impact of one-strike-you're-out.
