Sup Travellers?! There have been many instances where babies shot themselves after getting hold of a gun. Now, there is absolutely no way that we can call that suicide because most babies could barely even conceptualize the act of sh*tting in a potty let alone suicide. But the most common question that arises when these situations occur is, "Who to blame?" Well it's not really a common question anymore. The owner of the gun is to blame. Plain talk bad manners. Read on.


According to Detroit News, a 3-year-old Michigan boy is dead after shooting himself in the head on Sunday. Damon Holbrook was found in the front bedroom of his Dundee home. The owner of the handgun involved was arrested on charges of manslaughter and gross negligence. Police say 30-year-old Joshua Greenhill, was friends with Damon's father and lived at his house, as did Damon's 10-year-old sister and 5-year-old brother, who were upstairs when the boy shot himself. He died Sunday at an Ann Arbor hospital.


Police say the friend left the loaded gun on a closet floor, in an unlocked plastic case, and Damon managed to get a hold of it. Damon's father posted about the tragedy on Facebook yesterday, "Yesterday I lost my 3yrd son to a gun accident. We r all hoping to wake up from this nightmare. ... I have nothing wrong with guns it's with this country was built on. I will still support the Second Amendment," he wrote. "All I ask is that everyone please, please safety first lock it up and put it out of reach of anyone that has no business being around a gun especially kids."

The police didn't hesitate with pressing charges against the guy that left the gun in the unlocked plastic case. He is obviously the one to blame in this situation. The least he could have done is lock the plastic case like seriously. I think that the best thing to do when you have a gun around a baby is to either keep it on you or put it in a safe if you have one. And that sometimes may not even be safe. Guns and babies just don't mix, in a matter of fact, guns and humans don't mix. Someone is bound to hurt. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
