Thank you for gathering and summarizing this information. It is a tragedy to lose a child from any type of accident but when it is preventable, it is even more tragic. You mention that gun rights proponents say such laws impinge on their constitutional right to keep and bear arms. What about the child's constitutional right to be protected from harm? Isn't that the responsibility of the gun owner? A law holding gun owners responsible for keeping guns out of the reach of children is no different from other laws requiring parents to cloth, feed, shelter, and educate their children. I am for a law that requires gun owners to secure their guns away from children.
