SANDRIDGE, S.C., Feb. 3 (UPI) -- A South Carolina man whose son shot his daughter with a loaded shotgun has been charged with homicide by child abuse.

Doremus Alston was arrested Thursday, the Charleston Post and Courier reported. His 4-year-old son fired the gun after finding it Thursday afternoon, hitting his 2-year-old sister in the abdomen.

Police Captain Anthony Phyall said the gun was apparently left where the little boy could find it and was not secured. He said the barrel had been sawn off to a length below the regulation 18 inches, making the trigger easier for the little boy to pull.

Alston has also been charged with possession of a sawn-off shotgun.

is it a requirement to be a chief or captain that you must be a total retard when it comes to firearms?

How the fuck does a short barrel make the trigger easier to pull? That's absolute BS. Don't get me wrong, if it is an unregistered SBS, then the guy did something illegal (though it shouldn't be), and the kid DEFINITELY did something horrible, but that captain is spewing shit out of his mouth.

Atleast a ten dollar triggerlock. You aren't using the gun and have young kids that have no respect for guns then the gun goes in the safe or gets a triggerlock.

Some extra length on the barrels might have been too heavy for the boy to pick up.

At 4 years old, it isn't certain that he will even remember it.

even if he doesn't remember it, i doubt it's something that you could hide from him.

i mean some day he'll want to know why his dad's in prison.

Even at 4 I don't think you forget something like that.

Because then the guys who sleep in marpat pajamas (XXL size) with tinfoil nightcaps (XXS size) can get that extra 5 second drop on those door-kicking JBTs and big black rapists that are just waiting for you to lock up home-defense ARs in a safe so that they can attack you in your sleep. Hell no, not me! I keep my loaded Glock under my pillow and sleep with my hand on the trigger 'cause you never can be to careful! Boogie men are everywhere!

Would they have charged a single mother for the same thing? I doubt it.

If only mom had not bred with a complete idiot this would not have happened.

I won't overestimate the chief, but I bet this is the reporters rendition of what he said. Almost anytime I see a story related to something I'm familiar with myself, the news nerd always pens some crap that is totally ridiculous.
