The shooting death Wednesday night of 4-year-old Tiffany Dailey was one of those terrifying and senseless accidents that can punish a parent for a lifetime. While in the care of a teen-age sibling, Tiffany and her 6-year-old sister stumbled upon their father's loaded rifle, hidden behind the living room couch.
