This story about the poor dead kid in Goodlettsville is just incredibly terrible on so many levels it's hard to know where to begin. From WKRN:
Prior to the shooting, the dad had been watching television with the two children and was playing with the family’s cat with a laser mounted onto a gun.
Police said the man later went into the kitchen and forgot to put the firearm out of the children’s reach.
The older child picked up the gun in an effort to get the cat to chase the laser. Police said the child was unfamiliar with how the laser worked and instead pulled the gun’s trigger, firing one shot.
The 5-year-old victim was struck and killed.
The father stated he kept a weapon nearby for protection.
Set aside, just for a second, that a child died in a completely predictable and preventable way. This jackwagon who lives in an apartment complex was waving his loaded gun around in the vicinity of his children in order to play with his cat. He was playing with his cat by flailing a loaded gun around.
