Protect kids and lock up your guns - or face charges, lawmaker says (VIDEO)


A Louisville lawmaker wants to make it a crime to improperly store a weapon around children.

State Rep. Jim Wayne, D-Louisville, is pushing his legislation after 2-year-old Montreal Dunn shot himself in the head last week in the Park Duvalle neighborhood. His bill would require guns to be securely locked in a box or container, by a device or carried by an adult. Not doing so in the presence of children would be a misdemeanor.

A three-pack of gun locks goes for around $20 on Amazon.

"What we’re trying to say to gun owners is: Secure your guns from children," Wayne said. 

The measure, which Wayne proposed last year, is part of a national debate about holding people accountable for shootings that involve their weapons.
