Another senseless shooting in the US

Here we go again.
A 9 month old baby boy was shot dead by his 5-year old brother, with the latter thinking it was a toy. This happened near Kansas City.
This isn’t the first time and won’t be the last time this happens.
It is time for authorities to get tough on gun owners.
Some may say that the family may have suffered enough but I think there should be charges laid against the parents [following the grieving period].
There are probably a multitude of charges could be used such as child neglect [twice], failure to store a weapon properly, maybe charges related to having a loaded weapon, etc.
There was a story like this that happened right around Christmas time a month ago and I’m sure there are others.
Americans have the right to bear arms as per their constitution but they also are required to secure those same arms when not in use.
If parent are required to keep chemicals and dangerous items [knives, screw drivers, nails, etc.] out of children’s reach, why not a gun.
