    I don’t leave my carry gun around my adult GF or untrained friends…everything else is locked up. WTF

      Not a gun owner myself, so curious, is your carry gun not always locked up when not on your person?

        I live alone, so it only is if I am not around.

        If I leave and the GF(untrained for the time being) is home, or if there is family or kids present, it is either on my person and safed, or locked up in a biometric safe.

    It’s unclear if the parents –  identified by family as Sam Odums and Laileighauna Parks – will face charges in the incident.

    The owner absolutely should be charged. Clearly the gun was unsecured.

    Also, it was over 90°F in Douglas, GA. You don’t leave a fucking toddler in your car with that kind of heat.

      Even if the AC was left on, I’d have never left my kid in the car alone at 2. So many ways that can go wrong.

        You don’t leave your phone out in the car… your fuckin kid?

      Guns kept in a car usually aren’t required to be locked up if the car itself is locked. There’s not much point having a gun in the car if you have to ask the carjacker to wait nicely while you fetch your gun from its locked container.

          Seriously. Might as well lock your toddler in your gun safe at that point. I don’t see what difference the wheels make.

          I was just quoting the actual laws… As a concealed carry permit holder it’s a pretty important responsibility to know how/where it’s legal to store your loaded handgun.

            I hope it’s also important to know how/where to store your loaded handgun so toddlers can’t get to it.

              Rule 1: Don’t have kids.

              Rule 2: Don’t allow kids in your car or home.

              Agreed - that’s probably the easier way to charge the father in this case. Focus on child endangerment, reckless abandonment, etc. I’m just saying a gun charge probably isn’t the best path to conviction in this case.
