Should Owner’s / Parent’s be held accountable when children are killed? I am interested in the opinions of all NWF.com users on this matter. Please keep it legal and try not to shoot the messenger! The problem: Children being killed maimed or shot with guns that are unsecured or assessable. Solution: Should Owner’s / Parent’s be held accountable when children are killed? If so, to what extent? Charged with Negligent Homicide if neglect, wrong doing or unsecured weapons are used? (Unless the weapon was reported stolen.) "Kids gaining access to firearms in the home or of others if not 'Preventively secured or put away." I value the audience on this site, and feel that a real solution can be found. I have served as a Hospital Corpsman for 25 ½ years, have weapons, and value the CHL and amendments in the constitution. However, I think a time has come that we all need to do more to save our children. What do you think on this?
