    That really sucks. My 3yo knows never to touch guns, that they can cause harm, when shes a bit older and can fully understand better I'll further teach her gun safety and let her shoot too.

    I can only assume it was a .22 or small caliber, other wise a close shot like that to a 3yo's head could be lethal with a large caliber bullet.

    Another stupid set of parents, another injured child, another statistic for anti-gun groups.

    It is so terrible when a young child has to pay the price for the parents neglect/stupidity
