A four-year-old boy accidentally shot himself in the head with his dad's gun
On June 30, 2010, another tragedy occurred in Moscow with the use of traumatic weapons, which are still freely sold. A four-year-old boy found a traumatic pistol in his father's parked car, which the parent left there because of his absent-mindedness. For some time the kid played with an interesting toy until he accidentally shot himself in the forehead.
The child was taken to intensive care in critical condition. Doctors diagnosed him with an open craniocerebral injury and a comminuted fracture of the skull. Police are investigating the incident.
Traumatic weapons in Russia can buy almost any adult. It is not surprising that in recent years the number of accidents and crimes with it has been regularly growing. From 2005 to 2010, one and a half thousand crimes were registered in our country where this type of weapon was used.
Recall that in October last year, his 5-year-old son accidentally shot himself in the head with a Makarov service pistol from a Yakut policeman. Then the child died in front of his mother and father.
Russian President Dmitry Medvedev recently spoke on the topic that anyone can buy a traumatic gun - from a former prisoner to a mentally ill person. Alas, as the latest accident shows, children, even the smallest ones, often get to the traumatic weapons of their parents.
What do you think about the free sale of traumatic weapons?
