This. It was pretty negligent of her to not have them properly secured. Having a child with issues these guns should have been stored securely and properly.
Honestly this should be a focal point. Instead of going after guns, educate people and show this is why weapons must be properly secured. This includes hunting knives and bows. This should be a moment that people evaluate how these items are stored and how to improved the safe storage of these items.
I am currently looking at getting a pistol soon and I have a sister that has a learning disability. I am going to make damn sure that she knows what it is and if for whatever reason she has to handle it she know how to do so safely.
