Real guns aren’t toys
A five year-old boy shot his two year-old sister with a gun marketed for children and given to him by his parents.
Caroline Starks, two, was killed after her brother accidentally shot her while playing with his own .22-calibre gun – called My First Rifle. . .
The young boy had been playing with a Crickett gun, specially designed for kids, which was given to him last year.
Crickett guns are manufactured for kids by the Keystone Sporting Arms firm on a web page that boasts of their “child-friendly” rifles. . .
Coroner Mr White later admitted the incident would be ruled as an accident, saying: “It’s just one of those crazy accidents.”
One of those crazy accidents?
Crazy is making and marketing real guns to children too young to understand that playing with them could lead to real death.
Real guns aren’t toys.
