I think we are all glad that this woman’s child was unhurt, as well as both she and her husband.

I would imagine that if anybody was almost killed by a gun discharging accidentally that it would give them a new insight into gun control policies in this country. 

However, the sad fact is that quite often the accidental shooting which impacts a person’s life also takes that life or the life of one of their loved ones. 

Simply put guns do NOT keep us safe, and the more guns we have in our communities the less safe they are. 

There is at least one Alaskan resident who now understands that completely.
