Congress just passed a drug testing law that has a lot of people outraged. Do you think this is wrong?

Deputies said Cardillo asked the boy to put the gun down and that is when the gun was fired by the child.

Cardillo had removed the gun from his clothing and laid it down when he arrived home. The magazine was unloaded but one round was left in the chamber, reports WITN.
