Maybe the NRA could bring themselves to support mandatory lessons in gun cleaning?

A Macon man is in jail following the shooting death Thursday of a 17-month-old baby boy in west Bibb County.

Ronnie Howard, 36, has been charged with reckless conduct and second degree cruelty to children in the shooting death of Victor Carroll, according to a sheriff's office news release.

Howard is the boyfriend of Brooke Carroll, the baby's mother. Howard was cleaning a gun when it discharged hitting the baby in the face, the news release states.

The couple drove the child to the Medical Center, Navicent Health where he was later pronounced dead.
