Earlier this month, a 5-year-old child brought a gun to school. Thankfully the gun wasn’t loaded, but it was reported he found the gun in a relative’s car.

• Can the relative be charged with anything since the child had access to the gun?

• What if a child does shoot someone with a gun they find in the home? Are the parents responsible in any way criminally or to the person who is injured or killed?

Prevention is the key in these situations. Keep all guns locked up away from any child or person who is not familiar with the proper handling of a firearm.

Wonderful to work with

Beasley Allen did a great job with my case. They were wonderful to work with. They were available by phone when I needed them, treated me with the utmost respect and worked hard on my behalf. If a need arises in the future, I would definitely call on them again.
