But don’t worry, guns don’t kill people, people kill people. That twisted way of thinking comes from the NRA and the Republican party.
According to their reasoning, the gun had nothing to do with this 5 year old’s death. She could have also bludgeon herself to death with a rock.
A New Orleans mother is facing murder charges after her 5-year-old daughter, who was locked their home alone, died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
Investigators told WWLTV that 28-year-old Laderika Smth admitted that a gun was in the home where she had left her daughter while she went to the store.
New Orleans police were called to the home just before 11 a.m. on Sunday and found the 5-year-old girl lying on the bedroom floor. A .38 revolver was also recovered at the scene.
“See that little girl was probably going through the house and she probably ran across the gun, probably thought it was a toy and started playing with it,” neighbor Amber Rodriguez told WVUE.
After being rushed to a local hospital, the girl was taken off life support Sunday evening.
