Clearly an accident so not surprised the police are hesitant to add to the family's grief. The boy will have to live with this.

One has to ask the question WHY?? This lackadaisical attitude is exactly what is wrong with the RTP and rules in general.

One has to consider the lackadaisical attitude of the parents.

Parents are responsible for this .

Why wasn't the Gun stored properly? 

Why was it Loaded ?

Was it a Legal Registered Gun? 

Throw the book at the parents .

Again !  unsecured weapons left for kids to play with. this country is pathetic with gun control. lock 'um up in a cabinet secured to the wall ! but of course you need guns handy at a house blessing in Thailand. how did that go by the way ?
