Not the NRA’s fault. It’s the fault of the careless gun owner and no one else. The NRA didn’t tell the gun owner to just leave the gun lying around, where a child could put hands on it.

Whoever left the gun where a child could access it, should be charged with reckless homicide of a child and should be put in prison for a LONG time. Being the owner of many firearms, with children in the house, I make sure all of my weapons are securely locked away when they’re not on my person or in pieces in my workshop. Even when I leave a gun on the workshop table, in pieces, the workshop door has 4 different locking mechanisms, 2 of which are combination locks. The combinations are changed every 4 weeks. Each gun safe has a different combination, which I change every 4 weeks. Any firearms that are being stored for extended periods are unloaded and secured with a cable lock AND a trigger lock. My home defense weapons are stored loaded, but locked up.
No child is going to be able to access a firearm in my home, unless they learn how to drill a safe. Careless storage is negligence, in my opinion and should be prosecuted as such, when a child is harmed or a weapon is stolen and used in a crime.
