kids and guns

A five-year old boy in Kentucky accidentally shot dead his two-year old sister ... with his very own .22 calibre rifle ... which was left loaded, sitting in a corner of the living room (read the story here).

I am sure his parents are devastated. They have my prayers at his time of immense grief. As does the little boy, who will carry to his own grave the memory of this unhappy event. But in all charity one must ask: what were his parents thinking? Who in their right minds allows a five-year old to handle, much less own, a firearm?
