    Authorities in northern Idaho say a 2-year-old boy accidentally shot and killed his mother after he reached into her purse at a Wal-Mart store and the concealed gun fired.

    Kootenai County sheriff’s spokesman Stu Miller tells reporters that the shooting was accidental and occurred in the store in Hayden, Idaho, a town about 40 miles northeast of Spokane, Washington.

    Miller says the woman had a concealed weapons permit.

    This woman lived about 26 miles south of my current location in Idaho Falls, in a smaller town called Blackfoot. For those who do not understand Idaho geography, Blackfoot is quite a ways from Hayden. Hayden is in the north panhandle, Blackfoot is in far East Idaho, an area that relates more with Utah and Wyoming than Idaho.

    I appreciate Vit just putting out the facts. Who knows why she had a “concealed”. Perhaps she felt threatened, perhaps she just applied for it. Doesn’t really matter. A tragic gun ending. And what about all those other kids that she was with at Wal-Mart? Simply tragic.

    At least it was the irresponsible gun owner who was killed and not the innocent 2 year old kid or someone else at Walmart.

    Just another example of how a gun makes the average person LESS safe. Stats and facts are a beyotch.

    The mother who was shot dead by her two year-old was a nuclear research scientist and a “gun enthusiast” who was carrying her pistol in a purse that was specifically designed for concealed carry. Apparently, it wasn’t “two year-old proof.” Sad.

    Like I keep saying, 20-odd “innocent” people need to die by careless gunplay before a gun is successfully used to mow down a “bad guy”.

    Idiots. Just like the anti-vaccine people. The math is the same. Idiots.

    Like the last time around, the mother was the best possible target for that kid to shoot at. If anyone else got shot, it would have been a REAL tragedy.

    As a Grandfather myself, I can’t imagine the grief the Grandfather (William Porter) must be going through.
    That said, he needs to be prosecuted and imprisoned.

    Odds are he’s a right wing “Christian” wanker that was convinced by talk radio and Fox News that he needed to keep a loaded weapon around because Obama and his band of Socialist, Muslim, Kenyan Niggaz were coming to put him in a FEMA camp.

    (or some combination of the above)
