Two young children have been shot by their siblings in the space of 24 hours in the United States.

In Las Vegas, a two-year-old girl was in a critical condition after being shot by her four-year-old brother at their home, police said.

In South Carolina, a four-year-old boy was shot in the stomach by his three-year-old brother after the little boy found a gun.

The injured boy was expected to make a full recovery, police said.

The incident in Las Vegas happened on Thursday night after the girl's brother found a loaded 9mm handgun inside their home.

It went off while he was holding it, hitting his sister in her torso.

According to police, the father was home at the time and the gun appears to have been improperly secured.

The shooting involving the two brothers happened in Gray Court, South Carolina, also on Thursday night. They and their father were staying at the home of a family friend.

Laurens County Sheriff Ricky Chastain said it appeared the younger boy found the gun under a bed and accidentally shot his brother.

The injured boy was flown to hospital, where he underwent surgery, he said.

No charges have been filed in relation to either case.

Gun debate

The two incidents come less than a week after a five-year-old boy died after shooting himself in the head.

He had found a handgun inside his father's vehicle outside a Las Vegas pharmacy.

The father in that case has been charged with child endangerment.

In the US, the right to bear arms is enshrined in the Second Amendment of the US Constitution. There are thought to be more than 200 million firearms in private hands.

Advocates of gun control face tough opposition from gun owners.

Critics of the current gun laws link high levels of gun crime and gun-related injury with high levels of gun ownership. - source: BBC News

How sad and very irresponsible parents. If you own a gun and have children you should at least hide the gun where the kids can't find and reach them. One time my son and I went to his classmates birthday party and  guess what to my shock and horror these kids were playing toy guns aiming each other and seems like all the kids know how to even use them. His classmate hand him one toy gun.My son seems loss and don't even know what to do with it,we never let him play toy guns let alone video games. What really shocking is the mom of this boy is my children pre-k teacher. After the incidents I vow myself not to attend or bring my son to any of his classmates birthday party when it be held at their home.
Perti nakong likaylikay nga di ma expose akong anak anang ingon ana nga mga violent toys pero sa bithday party ra ma ruin.

Obviously, one's childhood is held hostage by the quality of parenting one grows up with. Irresponsible parents tend to produce their own kind.

It happens here also, mother is is filipina, the husband is a police officer. both are working so they hired another filipina to stay with the children. the kids were also 6 & 3 yrs old. They were playing so gibijaan pod sa pinay kay lagi naa may ubang buluhaton sa balay. Then the pinay was shock when she heard a gunshot & found the 3 yr old lying down with blood. Namatay intawon ang bata ug ang pinay nga nagbabysit na guilty feeling intawon.
