TFA says it happened early Sunday morning. How early 3AM or 10AM? This may make a difference.
 
2012-07-29 08:49:04 PM
FTFA: At some point during the party, the father reportedly shot his child while attempting to clear his gun.

Well, now he knows it's clear. What's the problem?

Oh right, the kid.

Actually I'm pretty sure that kid has a good grasp of the distinction.

Cleaning happens on unloaded or disassembled guns.

Clearing is removing all the ammunition.

Since a child was injured, it's obviously that the father in the story was seriously mistaken on the proper way to clear a handgun.

Possibly. It really depends on the child and the shooter's need for an alibi.

Clearing a weapon is unloading it, or at the least, removing a live round from the chamber. If he kept it loaded and ready to rock for home defense, he may have actually been trying to be responsible by unloading it with children around, but his plan backfired horribly.

True. People who accidentally shoot their own son don't do much of anything but cry, let alone realize when the police show up.

I was just driving up I5 and there was apparently a shooting on I5 South near Boeing Field. The guy who was hit had his SUV riddled with bullets, and he luckily survived with only a slug in the shoulder. Another vehicle was hit and flipped over several times. The occupants of that were lucky to have survived as well.

Traffic was backed up from Boeing Field to central Seattle.

People who are neither military nor law enforcement have no business owning guns. If Aurora has taught us anything, it's that.

My mom was a psychologist who did a lot of work with the local CPS. She told me once that a large number of these "gun cleaning/clearing accidents" are not accidents at all, but the adult losing their temper and deliberately shooting the kid, or "accidentally" pulling the trigger when using the weapon as a threat. An awful lot of people out there use their guns to threaten their own kids for misbehavior. Sometimes they take that to the extreme.
 
2012-07-29 10:25:39 PM
If he ran away, it wasn't an accident.
 
2012-07-29 10:27:12 PM
That's it! Take the guns from everyone! Now! Only the government can be trusted with them.

THIS! x 1000

Same thing with alot of the self-inflicted gunshot wounds while "cleaning" the gun. Guy decides he doesn't want to live anymore, wants to spare the family the pain of suicide and/or make sure they can collect on the life insurance. Lays out his cleaning kit and then offs himself. Anyone who knows the first thing about basic firearm safety can clear or clean a weapon without it discharging.

Kids rarely talk back to their parents when they're cleaning a gun.

"I suggest you clean your room."
"Right away dad!"

Seriously? When I was a kid the guns were just part of the wall. They never moved (nor were dusrlty come to think of it) until my grandfather taught me to shoot. Never was anything more than picking a switch or the occasional paint stirrer even mentioned or used.

If you need a gun to threaten your child... well beyond completely failing as a parent you never should have had them in the first place.

Unless the kid sprouts horns or was born with a tail, then it was probably justified.

I have a fourteen year old daughter. Depending on who was at the party I might understand the gun cleaning, just not while loaded.

Well that's only the worst thing I've ever heard in the history of forever. We don't need to license guns, we need to license people.

Then Aurora has taught you the wrong message.

One person goes mad in Aurora, shoots up a theater and booby trapped his apartment with bombs. Yeah, let's focus on that, and completely ignore the other thousands in Colorado who legally own guns and don't randomly shoot people. Live on a farm, need to protect yourself form wild and possibly dangerous animals? Can't trust you to use a firearm to do it because of one nut in Aurora. Live in a dangerous neighborhood and need a gun for defense? Don't worry, once guns are made illegal, the criminals probably won't break that law while breaking other laws, so don't worry. You're working for a security company, carrying large sums of money from businesses to armored cars to banks? Sorry, that's not law enforcement. You get to drive around with hundreds of thousands of dollars unarmed while others might shoot you to get at the money.
 
2012-07-29 10:49:35 PM
I thought everyone knew that people who said they were cleaning the gun when it went off actually shot the person on purpose.

I always want to just biatch slap idiots who say that line, but for whatever reason I'm curious what your logic is. What sets those people apart in their ability to own guns. What happens after they're done with their careers in military or law enforcement? Why do the people who I know carry and aren't cops shoot better than most cops I've seen at the range?

If Aurora has taught us anything, it's that people who want to push an agenda will latch onto any event regardless of its actual relevance.

Technically his plan forward fired, if his plan had backfired, he would have shot himself, then we possibly would have had a Darwin Award

Whether it's "clearing" or "cleaning",the fact that he did this while his child was in close proximity and then bolted like hell makes him Father of The YearTM material.

So, basically, live in the cities. Don't like it, tough. And buy only the food on the shelves and don't try any of that "do it yourself" stuff. That's just silly out dated stuff. I mean, it's totally impossible for something to happen, like a solar flare, and take out the entire power grid.
