A family road trip comes to a frightening end when their two-year-old daughter finds a gun in the back of the car they had rented.

The Davie, Fla. family had just returned home from Cocoa Beach when the gun was found.

The gun — which was still loaded — was found underneath the seat of the Toyota Avalon the family had rented from Enterprise Rent-A-Car.

The girl’s father, Louis Venuto said, “She knew something was wrong. She knew she was doing something wrong. So I didn’t hear her for a second because she always makes little noises and whatnot, so I quickly look back to make sure she’s OK, and she kinda was like, ‘Look what I found.’ I just reached around, and I grabbed it.”

Venuto also said, “She could have easily pulled the trigger is what I’m try to say,” he also added, “She rough houses with my 65-pound dog in there and to pull that trigger would have been nothing to do.”

Davie police were called. They took the gun away and are investigating who it belongs to.

Enterprise said they are also investigating the situation.

Yup, everyone will make certain that gun is returned to its rightful owner.

  1. Statistic says:

    Frankly, with approximately 270 million firearms possessed by civilians in the U.S. {Feb 2014 http://www.smallarmssurvey.org/home.html } it’s surprising this sort of thing doesn’t happen more often. However Googling ‘playing with handgun’ reveals many tragedies, such as the story of the 3-year-old boy in Payson, Arizona who shot and killed his 1½-year-old brother after they found a semi-automatic handgun tucked away in a 78 year old neighbor’s apartment. Reportedly the boy’s mother was just entering the bedroom when the shooting occurred and there was nothing she could do to stop it.
