A four-year old child is dead at a small home daycare operation in Orange, Virginia. It appears the child shot himself on Monday.

One of the residents of the home is a Stafford County Sheriff's Deputy. The deputy is still in training at the academy and has been with that agency about six months. The weapon was NOT a service weapon and the brief news blurb I read did not say anything about the ownership or normal storage of the weapon. I am not up on gun storage laws, if any, in Virginia. I know in CA it is a criminal offense to store a handgun where a person under 18 can access it.

Even if it turns out the deputy had no knowledge of or responsibility for the gun it is a tragedy and a pointless, stupid death.

EDITOR'S NOTE: This will give anti-gunners an organism.
