This time in Tampa.  A 3 year hold found a gun in his 29 year old uncle's backpack and shot himself.

The 29-year-old uncle of a boy who apparently found a handgun and shot himself is facing charges.

According to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, the child, Jadarrius Speights, 3, was taken to Florida Hospital just after 7 p.m. Tuesday. He died there.

Detectives have charged Jeffrey Walker with culpable negligence, a third-degree felony.

Detectives say Walker shared a bedroom with the child and had left the 9 mm handgun unsecured in a backpack. The shooting happened at the Avesta Apartments on the 13000 block of North 22nd Street. The boy's parents were in the next room when the shooting happened.

Why is it we in this country consider this state of affairs as simply normal?
