Of course, Mom's family disbelieves this, and police will determine if the child would have the hand strength to pull the trigger...
unless of course it were a Glock.
Great Mencken's Ghost, I won't even go into someone's house if they own a Glock; soon in FL one will have to ask friends if they carry a concealed Glock before getting in a car.
Thanks FL RepubliKKKans, looser gun laws, just what we need to stay safe.

[DETROIT, MI -- Controversial Pastor Terry Jones accidentally fired his .40-caliber handgun while he was at a Southfield television studio Thursday night, according to police.
The outspoken pastor, 59, of Gainesville, Fla., was getting in the passenger side of his car at 11:10 p.m. after an interview when the Taurus handgun went off, sending a bullet into the floorboard, Southfield Police Lt. Nick Loussia said today.
"Officers heard a gunshot, approached the vehicle, asked Mr. Jones if he was OK," Loussia said. Jones and the driver were in the parking lot of Fox2 studios on West 9 Mile. "He was, and they also observed he had a gun in his hand."
Officers took the gun, and also found another gun near the 42-year-old driver, a man from Florida traveling with Jones. Both men were carrying valid Florida concealed weapon licenses, which are recognized in Michigan, Loussia said.]
