Thumbs Up Or Down?

No rest for the wicked, Gun Dudes and Gun Dudettes ! We have another "situation" that needs our attention and understanding and judgement.

(CNN) -- A Kentucky mother stepped outside of her home just for a few minutes, but it was long enough for her 5-year-old son to accidentally shoot his 2-year-old sister with the .22-caliber rifle he got for his birthday, state officials said.

Little Caroline Starks died Tuesday in Burkesville, in southern Kentucky, according to Cumberland County Coroner Gary White.

"The little Crickett rifle is a single-shot rifle and it has a child safety," White said of the weapon. "It's just a tragic situation."

After due deliberation, we have decided this is an acceptable statistic, and will be lumped in with the many other "Kid Shoots Kid" stories for 2013 in the cold case storage area.
