Kids+guns=tragedy

It's billed as a .22 rifle for kids.

In this case, someone gave a rifle to a kid in Kentucky, a kid that is only five years old.

He accidentally shot his two-year-old sister dead.

The Cricket. They've even given it a name.

Is it just me?

This is insane. Five years old. If you want your son to have a gun at five, how about giving him a toy gun instead of a real one that can kill?

Really? A rifle with a cute name to a five-year-old? And now his baby sister is dead. How's that all working out for the family now?

More during the Thursday PhilCast.
