I now understand why that website is referred to as the "Daily Fail."

Is it still Darwin-award worthy if the shooter doesn't die?

No. you don't have to die either. Just lose the ability to reproduce.

I'm going to go ahead and be judgmental here....meh.

Not very sporting. Shooting your live brother in the head is much more difficult.
 
2013-01-02 10:25:11 PM  
he was only mostly dead

Dead relatives do make excellent backstops

A 19-year-old woman accidentally shot dead her brother while posing with a gun for Facebook photos on New Year's Eve.

In Massachusetts on New Year's Eve two best friends decided to settle an argument. Which is faster, drawing a gun or a knife? The gun won.

Thank God she didn't shoot her live brother in the head.

And people wanna take guns away from these idiots? How the hell else are we gonna get rid of them?

This just had to happen in Phoenix, didn't it?

Now is not the time to talk about Facebook control.

Damn. I wonder if he can even get one of those fat sausages through the trigger guard.

The most dangerous gun is an unloaded gun.

Darth_Lukecash: The most dangerous gun is an unloaded gun.


Indeed. If people just kept to the philosophy that there is no such thing as an unloaded gun and treat their guns accordingly, this kind of crap wouldn't happen.

Every time a story like this comes up, I hate how they are called accidents. Since the answer to these three questions is almost certainly "yes", it should be classified as some form of homicide (at least manslaughter, if not some degree of murder) and prosecuted accordingly: was the gun loaded? was the gun pointed at the victim? was the shooter's finger on the trigger?

Given the basic rules of firearms safety, answering yes to those questions should show intent, IMNSHO, even though what it usually shows is stupidity and ignorance.

From TFA: Phoenix Police Sgt Steve Martos said the victim's sister would likely be charged with manslaughter if tests conclude she had alcohol in her system.

Screw that. She should be charged with manslaughter anyway.

It's a shame they didn't have any pictures of the girl in TFA, but I loved the one where the wannabe cholo posed next to one of the other guys with the gun to HIS OWN HEAD and his finger on the trigger.

Finger off the trigger until you are ready to fire!!!

Why was the gun even loaded?

I bet the brother would still be alive if he had a gun.

If she can get four more, she can get the DEVGRU skin for that pistol!

when isn't it considered loaded?
 
2013-01-03 01:18:07 AM  
Cause nothing says you're from the streets like posting on Facebook.

Plus the lack of muzzle discipline. Never point a gun at something you don't intend to shoot and don't put your finger on the trigger till you are ready to shoot. And always treat a gun as if its loaded. Simple common sense.

This.

Avoiding these situations is impossible for anyone. The only option is to shoot back.
 
2013-01-03 01:19:15 AM  
Same thing could have happened if they were posing with a knife, or fist.

Even drunk, I check to see of the piece is unloaded, or at least unchambered, before I do stupid stuff with it.

/ always treat the gun as loaded
// never point it at something you don't want to destroy

I don't even own any, but that just comes across as common sense. Love going shooting when invited.
 
2013-01-03 01:24:17 AM  
They probably made sure the gun was "unloaded" by removing the "clip".

Tip: if a pistol has a round in the chamber, removing the magazine will not unload the round in the chamber.
Tip: Russian Roulette with a semi-auto is not a good plan for the first guy in line.

I refuse to touch any firearm (unless secured entirely within a case, and only if moving the cased firearm to a secure location) within six hours of consuming any alcoholic beverage.

I apply the same self-restriction to operation of a motor vehicle.
 
2013-01-03 01:26:40 AM  
If only she held the gun at facebook angle..
 
2013-01-03 01:28:02 AM  
This wouldn't have happened if there had been an armed guard at their apartment. I propose we spend eleventy jillion dollars putting an armed guard in every apartment.

Probably the inference is that if there wasn't alcohol in her system she can't be charged, since there wouldn't have been enough fluid circulating to keep her brain functioning.

One look at those pictures....give them some more ammo! More chlorine for their gene pool!
