Today in Responsible Gun Ownership...

A Tennessee man showing off the snazzy features of his 9-mm pistol accidentally shot his 13-month-old daughter.

Kevin Sayre, 26, now faces an aggravated assault charge and is held in lieu of a $20,000 bond as he awaits a court date Thursday.
"We're always disappointed, astounded, surprised when we hear of someone who is handling a firearm recklessly, neglectfully," Tullahoma Police Chief Paul Blackwell told WSMV-TV.

Sayre was allegedly field stripping two Glock pistols at his apartment and showing how their parts are interchangeable when the gun went off, seriously wounding the baby who reportedly was standing with her hands on a coffee table nearby.
“I just imagine like it was my own kid,” neighbor Misty Patterson said as she teared up, holding her own baby. “And it’s sad to know I live close by to this.”
Luckily the baby girl is expected to survive.
