Of course it'd be unthinkable in today's climate to suggeest that one possible means of curtailing the number of these accidents would be to have the (all-too-often) negligent parents of trespassing brats be prevailed upon to restrain their wanderings onto their neighbors' property.

Trespassing? Appears to be a greater code violation...

NCANDS indicated that in 2001
1.81 children per 100,000 in the population died as a
result of abuse or neglect. The total number of reports has increased nationwide by 49% since 1986... childabuse.com

Bullets, unguarded pools and matches can not kill...

The root is the cause - Neglect.

There are far more deaths by other causes of neglect:
Lack seatbelts?
Secondhand smoke?
Bike Helments?


Seriously, they need permit money this bad?

Someone may want to tip him off to the 10,000 plus Lakes rivers and streams in unguarded my state.

Statistics indicate that close to 200 children nationwide drown or are injured in swimming pools each year.

Is that all kinds of pools? That actually seems quite low for a nationwide number.
