God Bless those effected by the tragedy. The child, his Mother's Family and the co-workers. Please do not hide unlocked handguns. If you cannot afford to buy the case, key or lock..don't buy the gun. People would love it if you go and ask Bob Menendez about his black staffer's post on Facebook. Wow so the father put a real one in his Toddler son's backup? That's really messed up.
Wow how much pressure does it take to pull the trigger this is a tragedy Hopefully they do not send him to jail because the child will be an orphan. Horrible mistake but the guy will live with that mistake for the rest of his life. You don't have to put people in jail for everything. Something doesn't add up here...
Was this photo necessary This story seems odd. The loaded gun is heavy . The trigger isn't easy for a toddler. shannonrwatts MomsDemand Well_Regulated_ Good looking tato I'm guessing he wasn't planning on being photographed that day. Why was the gun not LOCKED IN A SAFE LIKE THE LAW SAYS TO?
Florida man charged after toddler fatally shot mom during Zoom callA Florida man has been arrested in the shooting death of a woman who was on a Zoom call when her 2-year-old fired a gun, officials say. Omg! Imagine how that child is going to feel when they are older and understand what happened. 😥💔 OnlyInMiam oh F it BetteMidler u take this one! The right to shoot mom
Classic I hear stories like this a lot but they never charge anyone! Why this time? Waymin…..she was on a Zoom call😲 I think the person responsible for this negligence must be arrested regardless who the person is. All criminals must be punished equally and equitably regardless of race and ethnicity. Wrong is wrong and must be stopped.
It is really sad that many are bringing race into this. This is a tragedy and a toddler lost his mother in a horrible accident not his fault. I m truly curious how did this toddler have access to the gun? How did this toddler know how to pull the trigger?where is the adult? Why on earth would he put a loaded gun in the kid's backpack He should get arrested.
BLM AntWilliams7 This is why guns stay in the safe... I think that most gun owners have their firearms loaded and ready for action. The pressure necessary to strike the pin depends on the weapon. I have one where if the safety is off and a round is chambered ther is very little pressure needed to send action. Custom guns dif story.
We Mastered Zoom From Home. Just Wait for Hybrid-Office Zoom.There’s a new set of hiccups for video meetings when only part of the staff is in the office, including trying to all get in view; ‘close enough to rub noses.’ I never use ZOOM. I have hated ZOOM. Because they play with Yu Ji Won, I am worrying about what time ZOOM will be dead by Yu Ji Won 🤔 A Toobin zoom meating. horrible
No brain. Nice hair! this is literally the saddest news story this year. imagine coming home to this. I'm praying for this man all the time. SOME PEOPLE CAN'T FULLY UNDERSTEND TO HAVE GUN LOCKS AND BE MORE CAREFULL AROUND MINORS. Too much Florida…! A white man was arrested for a 6 year old child for almost the same reason idk on the full story but the white man was a grandpa of the 6 year old child the man was about 61 years old n has a life in prison the 6 year old fund his gun in his room n shot his father n killed him
The father was at the salon when the tragedy occurred It's always the cross eyed ones. Paw patrol doing the most You can see the red flag a mile away.
Killed on Zoom: Dad held after toddler finds gun, shoots mom Florida police have arrested the father of a toddler who found a loaded handgun in his backpack and fatally shot his mother while she was on a Zoom call for work. The father was charged with negligent manslaughter and unsafe storage of a firearm. Murders per 100,000 population: FL 5.2 TX 4.9 CA 4.3 NY 2.9 So Florida, how's that 'good guy with a gun' thingie working out for ya? It's always Florida. Holy crap! How mean was the toddler's mother?
Who saw it If you're Caucasion it's a horrible accident, when you're Black its murder and whatever other charge they can find to slap on you😏 There is no sentence available to match this ridiculous, heinous and avoidable crime. Him? No way. He finna look so wholesome (hole - sum / for the less than literate)
Ayo Paw Patrol is the one Murica So sad. When will they arrest the white people who don’t properly store their weapons? This seems like the first time that I have seen a parent arrested for a toddler shooting someone with the parents gun. equaljusticeforall Weird. I’ve read LOTS of stories like this with white parents being irresponsible with their guns…and it was called a tragedy. EVERY one should be arrested for this. Stonekettle

And I have no problem with that. You can't leave a loaded gun in reach of a child, PERIOD! Damn, how many tall pieces of furniture or out of reach cabinets are there in the house where he could have put the gun, after unloading it. ...mom shoulda put on cocomelon 😳 who could have known BLM Something that virtually doesn't happen anywhere else in the world.
Tragic 😭so that child will grow up and be told that 'you killed your own mother'. You know..I love how these people act all tough and big shot on the streets but when they are getting a mug shot, they have this face. Aaaa.. worthless souls..how there are so many wow he doesn’t look like the type Some stellar headlining right there…
Don't they have the death penalty in Fla?
