A 3-year-old boy in Greenville, South Carolina was shot in the head and killed on Friday after he started playing with a pink handgun because he thought it was a toy.
Police responding to the shooting at Haywood Plantation Apartments said that Tmorej Smith was found with a gunshot wound to the head, according to The Associated Press.
Fowler said that the shooting happened in a bedroom, while the boy’s grandparents were in the living room.
It’s the kind of thing you’d think poses such a hazard to children that if those supervising them are moronic enough not to keep them in a safe place (y’know like Gayle Trotter) that some sort of product liability would be justified.
Good luck with that, because thanks to Congress, you may be able to sue a manufacturer of a washing machine that shorts out, but you cannot sue a gun manufacture for making a gun look like a transformer.
