That's no accident; that's negligence

A 3-year-old boy fatally shoots himself with his father's service weapon ("Deputy's son killed," April 8, Page B-5) and Sutter County authorities call it a tragic accident? I call it criminal gross negligence. I have owned guns my entire adult life and if I and other citizens are legally responsible for keeping our weapons safe, shouldn't those in law enforcement be held to the same standards?
