Madness to allow children to be playing around you while you're involved in target practice.

Who wants an air gun in the house full stop?

Why, oh why, was he "practising" (playing with an airgun?) in his garden with two small children around??? I just don't understand what he can have been THINKING. Poor little child. Poor family. sad

Why do people have airguns in their house?

Poor little baby, and yes 2shoes I agree, how unbearably awful for the poor girl. Clear failure on part of the parent who by their carelessness has put that poor little girl in the position of having shot her brother. It's too awful and bizarre to contemplate.

dh has an airgun

it's on the top shelf of his shed, even he can't reach it without a ladder, and I've made sure he doesn't have any pellets at all.

Poor baby.

And I feels o sorry for his big sister. How s she going to feel growing up knoing what happened and her part in it. Tragic

Have to say that I hate guns. No way would I have any form in my house. Reckon they should be restricted to some club or other, and kept locked up.

I was looking for an update on the little boy the other day.
So sad I had been hoping he'd be okay.
