This one explains a bit more about the incident. It was a Glock 9mm, not a Sig, and it was a single shot not two. I’m still not sure how the geometry works, but the kid fired hitting Mom in the leg, and ‘fragments’ hit Dad in the head. There was a three month old in the room at the time who was unhurt, but both kids have been sent to stay with relatives for the duration.

Dad has been charged in the matter and turned himself in to police.

At least they had the good sense to put the kids with relatives and not with some government agent--not that they should have taken the kids away in the first place...

According to this article, a two year old not only managed to pick up a gun from his parent’s night stand, but managed to fire it without dropping it, and then fired it again. I just feel like there’s something missing from the backstory here, I don’t see a two year old having the arm strength to raise a gun, and hold it firm enough to fire it. The whole family will be okay- no life threatening injuries, per the article- but you know this will be used to push the gun control arguments.
My great-grandson at 2 was bigger than his 4 yr old sister.

Just damn lucky it wasn't one of those guns that can shoot 5000 bullets per second... The kid could have killed the whole neighborhood.:eek::eek:

I don't know that there is anything the law can do, to impress on this man, the folly of his gun safety ways more effectively, than having his wife shot and himself injured. This could have been a deadly incident. (think femoral artery) No doubt this will be on his mind forever.

The dangers of lightweight pistols I suppose. Some shooters are well under a pound loaded so.…..
