Not again.  This is so sad.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to this family. A tragedy like this can be so easily prevented if the gun was locked and the ammunition stored separately. Please join us in talking with other parents about locking up their guns – ncgv@ncgv.org .

“Five-year-old Haley Moore had been playing with her father’s handgun, police said. Moore told investigators that he had left his .45-caliber gun out on a table in the home, the station reported.

“The oldest kid, she repeatedly said, ‘My sister shot herself. My sister shot herself. I don’t know if she’s going to be okay,’  Ursin told WDSU.”
