    Slatington police investigating fatal shooting of 19-month-old - mcall.com

    Trying to empty a gun so she could sell it, mom accidentally fires the gun, hitting her 19 month old son in the forehead with a .44 while he was lying in his crib. She's been charged with involuntary manslaughter.

    Stupid people like this are a greater threat to our gun rights than politicians are.

    A $200 .44 could not be much of a gun. It had to be a revolver. Now how does one accidently fire a revolver ?

    Poor little guy! This just sucks! I hope that we don't hear the "mothers suffered enough" sentencing! Put her where she has a chance to get streight.

    Drugs are responsible for nearly all our ills, but it means employment for lawyers and law enforcement.

    Unfortunately,this may have been the easy way out for the poor kid.Imagine what his future was to be with a mother like that.
    Then they're going to do an autopsy.I guess the hole in his head wasn't enough proof what the cause was? Just bury the little guy.

    Wouldn't surprise me if it wasn't so much of an accident. Kids do cut into drug money

    Well, $200 was what a doper was trying to get for the gun. Who knows what it was actually worth... She did say that she "did not know about guns". Or I guess it could have been stolen. Stolen guns go pretty cheap, right?

    You can accidentally fire a revolver while decocking it.
    I'm picturing her pawing at a single action, trying to figure out how to open it as you would a typical double action, and pulling the hammer 3/4 of the way back before it slips. Or she could have been trying all of the controls on a semi-auto, hoping to release the magazine, and pulled the hammer back. Regardless, if she didn't know how to operate it she should never have fiddled with it. Guess she knows why now. Terrible.

    The usual way, stuff your finger in the trigger guard and pull.
