3-Year-Old Killed in gun Accident, It’s the Wii’s Fault, apparently.

Three-year-old Cheyenne Alexis McKeehan was killed in what can only be called a very unfortunate tragedy. She shot herself in the abdomen after apparently mistaking a loaded gun for a Wii gun controller.

According to the Sheriff on duty, Terry Ashe : The child had been playing a Nintendo Wii video game, Ashe said. The game’s controller was shaped like a gun that looked very similar to the real handgun, which her stepfather had put on a table in the living room. Ashe said the girl pulled the gun off the table and it went off.

An investigation is underway and no charges have been filed – but if you ask me the stepfather needs, at the very least, a backhand across the face. What kind of goddamned idiot leaves a loaded 380 caliber semi automatic handgun within the reach of a 3 year old?

The Wii and its silly, unnecessary peripherals aren’t to blame here. Stupidity is.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
