The unfortunate gun is officially registered for the father of the hit daughter, but now, the dad can be charged with the failure to grant the secured place for the weapon that caused the accident.

Granting security

Even though, keeping the gun inside the house together with children is not a good idea, it is still quite a possible scenario in the American houses. If it happened, try to store the ammunition and a weapon in different places.

The gun should be locked without any access to kids, as even a 2-year-old can easily trigger the deadly weapon. Be conscious parents, take care of the close ones.
