Indiana 9-Month-old Dead - Daddy Forgot the Round in the Chamber
Local news reports
A 9-month-old shot in Howard County while his dad was trying to clean a gun has died, according to police.
The incident happened Wednesday night. Officials with the Howard County Sheriff’s Department said the child’s father, John Hambaugh III, 31, was taking apart a gun to clean it but there was still a round inside.
It discharged, striking the father in the thigh before hitting the baby in the head.
I suppose the gun-rights commenters believe one-strike-you're-out is too severe for this guy. It was only an accident, after all.
