Toddler shoots himself with Father's gun. English Conversation

Firearms in the hands of the wrong people. I can think of two categories Children and Terrorists.  This past week we have hear of both types of tragedies.   How do we prevent these events from happening? gunn

One, we do need some kind of gun control, to keep guns out of the hands of terrorists.  Second, for those who do need a gun, there has to be clear rules about how and where such firearms need to be stored.  In Israel, where all the soldiers have guns, they are required to have them on their person at all times.  Do we hear about accidents?  Not really.  The rules are very clear!
