The gun owner may be fined for this incident, according to recent reports.In connection to this case, a safety activist told that most gun shootings could be prevented if a gun is locked properly and also it is advisable to place any weapons off sight and out of reach from children.Sources say such kinds of child crimes are rising up these days all over the world including India. This is because; children of this generation don’t get a joyous environment which the previous generation has experienced. According to the recent survey by a trusted source, not only Children but also, aged people were getting addicted to Video games.Children of this generation are using smartphones, laptops and other electronic devices at a very young age itself. This might affect the health of the children both mentally and physically. This is definitely due to lack of parental care on their children and parents should not say lame excuses that they did not find the time in their busy schedule.If a child receives a good parental care at the younger age, he/she would be kind and generous-minded in future.
