Harrison township is near Dayton Ohio.
HARRISON TWP. — An unattended one-year-old child suffered a life-threatening gunshot wound after getting access to a firearm inside an apartment complex Sunday morning.

Medics were dispatched just before 10:30 a.m. to the 1900 block of Republic Drive in the Creekside Apartment Complex on initial reports of an injured one-year-old child, according to the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office.

They transported the child to a local hospital.

Sheriff’s deputies were called to the hospital at 4:56 p.m. to investigate the injury.

A preliminary investigation revealed that the child was left unattended while adults slept. During that time, the child gained access to a firearm and sustained a life-threatening gunshot wound.

There is an update on WHIO, apparently the mother was prohibited from having the gun in the first place, and has been charged, among other charges, with having firearms under disability.

I wonder what kind of gun a one year old could pull the trigger on?
Quit worrying, hide your gun well, shut up, and CARRY that handgun!
