Age 10 , New Jersey
My grandson was at his maternal grandmother’s house as he had been many times before. His 34-year-old uncle was showing off his four guns to 10-year-old Hunter along with his 10-year-old son, with out even following any safety rules. He pointed the last gun he was showing at Hunter’s head, with the laser sight on his forehead, and the gun went off. Hunter was dead before he hit the floor. The lives of this family are saddened and changed forever. My daughter-in-law and son wake up everyday thinking about their son who is no longer here, because of unsafe gun ownership. We will never get to see our baby grow up and do all the things a parent and grandparent hope to do. Hunter and his family had started coming down the shore where I live for about two weeks in the summer. They would fish, do the rides, eat boardwalk food, and boogie board on the waves. Since this happened they no longer come down and stay. I not only lost my grandson, but my Son too — they don’t want to go places where they are reminded of how life used to be.
