Another child dead from a pink handgun

He is just 3 years old.

read the story and the part about the Arizona state senator.

So many deaths ....when will it stop..

A 3-year-old boy in Greenville, South Carolina was shot in the head and killed on Friday after he started playing with a pink handgun because he thought it was a toy.

Police responding to the shooting at Haywood Plantation Apartments said that Tmorej Smith was found with a gunshot wound to the head, according to The Associated Press.

Investigators determined that Tmorej and his 7-year-old sister had been playing with a pink handgun when the incident occurred.

6. Guns and toys should be immediately distinguishable

There's some real room for regulatory improvement here. We already require orange tips on toys, but we should do some regulation in this direction too.
