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

    For everyone focusing on the toddler alone in a hot car part. This was a fireworks stand. So they were probably 10 to 20 feet away. We can hope they opened the windows, which would make it roughly the same temp as where they were. So let’s refocus on the gun please.

      Let’s focus on how pissed they look in that photo.

      On a side note, your user name. What is modern medicine not?

            This isn’t a vaccine thing. They are certainly talking about things like antidepressants that we can see do work but don’t have really any clue how or why and can’t come up with something that doesn’t have bonkers life changing side effects.

            mRNA vaccines are precision engineering and are where the future of medicine is. They do one thing in a targeted way and do it well.

            Not OP, so can’t comment on the vaccine part but the “modern medicine isn’t modern” is actually a cute analysis. When it comes the healing major woulds, even ones inflicted intentionally like during surgery, we don’t actually know how to heal the body. We know how to clean the wound. We know how to remove malignant tissue. But we don’t actually know how to heal the wound. The best we’ve got is “keep it clean and let the body do it’s thing”. To OPs “poison” point, when it comes to things like antibiotics, those are really just other stuff in nature that we found out kills stuff inside us. It also kills stuff we don’t want to kill inside us, which sounds kind of poisony. Chemotherapy and radiation treatment are similar - just dose this person with this stuff and hope the thing we’re trying to kill dies before the person does.

            Surprisingly vaccines are probably the most “modern” example we have of medicine, especially the RNA stuff.

    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.

      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.

                  I haven’t made any arguments to “bad faith”. I just saw OP saying the father should face gun charges, and that’s a topic I know a bit about, so I thought I’d chime in with a quick fact check. I never said the father wasn’t a piece of shit or that he shouldn’t go to jail.

            No, you weren’t, you wrote your comment completely ignoring the actual context.

            Regardless of that, carjacking and the ability for anyone to stop one, is not going to yield great results if someone is already pointing a gun at you. No one is really prepared to deal with opposing one; the best thing to do is just get out and get to safety.

                A knife or a gun is equally efficient at intimidating and damaging someone. You aren’t going to have the time or awareness to draw a gun before they stab you.

        Guns kept in a car usually aren’t required to be locked up if the car itself is locked.

        This varies widely from state to state, with different requirements for loaded vs unloaded, concealed carry permits, and accessibility requirements.

        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.

        So use a quick-access safe mounted in the vehicle or get a concealed carry license and keep it secured in a holster with you. No excuse for leaving it accessible to a child.
