Oklahoma girl shot by 12 year old brother

Once again, we write a story about kids playing with guns. In Oklahoma, a brother and sister were playing with a gun when it went off, hitting the girl in the neck:
Lawton television station KSWO reports that the children were playing with water guns when they discovered their parents' loaded gun Wednesday night.
Undersheriff Stacy Randolph says the boy accidentally shot his younger sister in the neck. Her age wasn't immediately available.
Authorities say the shooting appears to be accidental and that the children were not fighting when the gun went off.
The girl is expected to recover from the bullet wound.

Every gun in the hands of a child or teen must first pass through the hands of an adult.
