AirForceVet: FTA: As heartbreaking as Holt's death is, he is far from the first person to be killed in an accidental shooting even this year. According to Policy Mic, accidental shootings killed 851 Americans in 2012.I wonder how many of those accidental shootings were Darwin Awards, unlike this sad case./Let's throw in suicides in 2012 by guns, for good measure://Oh, I can't find that statistic easily on Google as the NRA fights collection of that data.
brandent: Why does Drew hate periods?
MelGoesOnTour: Oh, my. This happened near to where I live (which is not at all a Podunkville like where these accidents tend to happen).
basemetal: That's what they get for dry firing a gun./DNRTFA
skozlaw: It's never a tragedy when stupid people get shot doing stupid things. Tragedy in this sort of circumstance implies an accident and getting shot playing with guns like they're children's toys is never accidental.Ever.The girl should be charged with murder and everyone else involved as accomplices to it.If gun owners want to be seen as responsible, let's help them out by starting to hold them responsible when they act like farging retards with the damn things. Maybe if we started locking idiots like these up for long periods of time the only ones left in any significant measure WOULD be the ones that are actually responsible after a time.
UNAUTHORIZED FINGER: My nephews wonder why I don't allow them to point toy guns, Nerf guns, or squirt guns at me or each other. Bad habits are hard to break. We never had BB guns when I was a kid, because kids will treat them like toys. We could, however, go shooting real guns with adult supervision whenever we asked. At age 11 each of my brothers and sister and I received our first .22's. By that age we'd been well drilled in gun safety.
Quantum Apostrophe: But overall, having a gun in the house makes you safer. Sure, once in a while there are tragic unavoidable accidents like these, but nothing's perfect.
OnlyM3: No charges being filed?WTF?If she had driven her car down the street like an idiot and turned some 8th grader into a stain she'd be behind bars. Which one of her family members is a cop ?
ManateeGag: More retarded people with guns ruining to for responsible adults.
