Only in America?? Well no, of course not - lots of Middle East countries where this might have happened. Just seems so foreign an event to our "civilized" countries!

HAYDEN, Idaho — A mom died Tuesday after her toddler reached into her purse and accidentally discharged her handgun, authorities said.

Veronica J. Rutledge, 29, of Blackfoot, Idaho, was shopping at a Walmart in this Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, suburb with four children in tow. One of the children, a boy about 2 years old, was left in a shopping cart, reached into his mother's purse at about 10:20 a.m. MT, and the weapon went off once, said Lt. Stu Miller, Kootenai County Sheriff's Office spokesman.

"It appears to be a pretty tragic accident," Miller said. Rutledge was dead by the time deputies arrived.

She had traveled to Hayden, about 400 miles northwest of Blackfoot, to visit relatives for the holidays, Miller said.

The article goes on to say that she did have a license to carry a concealed weapon. Just one of those "unfortunate" incidents!

tragic accident: "unfortunate" incidents..

It is neither, it is a lack of training discipline.
There are courses on safe handling and carrying
of firearms but if people either don't take them
or if they do, ignore everything they are taught
then this sort of thing is bound to happen..
The same is true even in driving a car, seems
when you pass a course and get a permit that's
it, do what ever you like... [ I have a permit..!! ]
Geese !! people can be so ignorant ...!!
