A conversation I’m glad I will never have to have

“Mommy, where’s Daddy?”

“I’m sorry, sweetie, you killed him with his own gun when you were just a little boy because he didn’t believe in securing firearms.”

A conversation I’m glad I will never have to have with a child.

    To be fair: You’d be dead if it happened, so there’s no chance of the conversation either way.

  3. Had the ‘Toddler’ been even a little bit older the firearm “Safety Check” involves looking down the barrel for a live round and pressing the trigger to verify that the gun is ‘Safe’. Of course a toddler is less ‘safety conscious’ and will point the gun at the nearest person, as depicted in the movies and cartoons, pull the trigger, expecting the person to fall down. Exactly what happened. Toddlers are actually very smart. Adults with firearms and toddlers may overlook the need to secure their guns. Happily, when that mistake is made it is a one time event. Like letting the puppy chew on electrical wires.
