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. ... Fowler said that the shooting happened in a bedroom, while the boy’s grandparents were in the living room.In a move that is endorsed by Gayle Trotter and the Susan G. Komen Foundation, guns that have designs made to allegedly appeal to women have become more common. It's the kind of thing you'd think poses such a hazard to children that if those supervising them are moronic enough not to keep them in a safe place (y'know like Gayle Trotter) that some sort of product liability would be justified.
Good luck with that, because thanks to Congress, you may be able to sue a manufacturer of a washing machine that shorts out, but you cannot sue a gun manufacture for making a gun look like a transformer.
