TOPIC: Father shoots infant child in front of family
Created by: Nkenswing
Original Starting post for this thread:
A 10-month-old boy was shot and killed by his father Thursday in an apparent accident at a Nashville, Tenn., hotel, local media reported.

Two police detectives from the Hermitage Precinct were close to the hotel when the call went out and made it to the scene within about three minutes but were unable to resuscitate the child, NBC affiliate WSMV-TV Channel 4 reported.

The child's mother Jacquelin Bass, 28, and the couple's other sons, aged 3 and 2, were in the room when the gun went off, the station said.

The baby was shot once in the chest as his father, Larry Bass, 30, handled the semi-automatic handgun, the Nashville Tennessean reported

The family, from Texas, was at the Extended Stay America hotel near Nashville International Airport when the incident happened. Larry Bass was in town to work on construction of the Music City Center, a 1.2-million-square foot convention center.

The newspaper said the family had checked in on Jan. 29.

Ten-month-old Adam Bass would have had turned 1 in May, the Tennessean reported, quoting police spokesman Don Aaron as saying that the family was "very, very distraught over what's happened" and that "the police department does not believe this was an intentional act."

Attempts to reach the police department were unsuccessful early Friday. WSMV said a police investigation was continuing.

Yep. I bet that guy bought the gun to protect his family...

No Robert...you gun grabber you! How dare you suggest a gun owner lose their rights?? This could have happened with a swimming pool, steak knife, tall building, hammer, caulk gun, shovel, rake, car, snowmobile, motorcycle, drain cleaner, eye drops, hedge trimmer, lawn mower, etc etc etc Didn't you hear? Millions of people die from these deadly weapons every year. I mean after all, just like a gun, all of these things were designed to kill....oh wait...no their not

In this case, the gun had nothing to do with it. Even under your rules, he could own said gun, as he was (I hope was) a cop.

In any event, this is a case of irresponsible weapon usage and ownership. The owner ought to lose all rights to fire arms at the minimum.

Don't blame the gun ! This inbreed hick could have accidentally dropped the baby off the balcony and landed in the swimming pool, a drunk driver could have driven the car into the pool, got out and hit the baby ion the head with a hammer See? The gun had nothing to do with it!

In Wayne's NRA World, the solution to this problems would be more guns in the hotels.

Yes, there are cases of guns going off without actually squeezing the trigger. I guess that could be considered an accident. However, THE [one and only] rule of safe gun handling is: NEVER POINT A GUN AT SOMETHING YOU DO NOT WANT TO SHOOT.

Therefore, IMHO, whenever a gun is discharged and something is hit unintentionally, it is negligence. In short, a gun can accidentally fire, but hitting something unintentionally is negligence.

Example- there is a type of bolt action rifle that is commonly used for hunting that had a nasty habit of discharging when the bolt was worked to extract a shell. I know someone who shot a hole in the floor of his truck as he attempted to unload the gun when he was done hunting.

The problem had been corrected in later models. I own one of the later models- mine was manufactured after the correction was made, and has a detachable magazine.

The gun is available with or without a detachable magazine. Without a detachable magazine, to fully unload all rounds from the magazine, the rounds were either all cycled through the gun, or you opened the bottom plate and all the ammunition went flying out on the ground. Often lost in the snow or mud.

Actually there are a few rear cases where a fire arm is manufactured poorly and the weapon can discharge on its own. That said, the weapon ought to have been unloaded at all times, so even when at rest, the poorly designed weapon would not discharge... Through accident or negligence.

Thus both are negligence and an additional count of negligence is pointing a weapon at someone not a threat. accidentally or not.

I dislike the term "the gun went off". It implies that guns do things on their own without a person doing them, almost like it somehow relieves them of their responsibility. It would be much more accurate to say that the person accidentally shot someone.

While I was in the military, and any time I would put my weapon down, we removed the clips, visually checked to ensure that the chamber was empty and made safe the weapon.

We didn't allow our weapons out of our sight, someone was assigned guard duty. We didn't allow the weapons within reach of any child. We didn't act irresponsible.

I award thee "Post of the Week"."

Where did this come from? Where in this thread have I said anything about myself?

Calling negligent homicide (as a result of any negligent use of a fire arm) an accidental death is idiotic at best, should be criminal in and of itself.
