Dang. He probably broke the first and second rule of handling a gun.

1. A gun is always loaded; no exceptions.

2. Don't point a gun at anything you'd care to keep

Listen until I have more of the information of this I will say two things:

1. Perhaps the brother of this was standing the ground oF he.

2. Perhaps if the girl had the gun of she this could have been the avoided thing.

The incident of negligent discharge is higher in young kids than adults.

/ There's no such thing as accidental discharge. And anybody who tells you that their gun went off while they were cleaning it are lying or incompetent.

Yes.

For proof, the phrase "gunshot wound" should suffice.

It's a wound. What kind of wound? A gunshot wound.

Yes there is. It is possible to strike a gun by accident and cause the weapon to fire. It is also possible to do a number of stupid and irrisponsible things and cause the trigger to be pulled.

Older guns (pretty much read as: "newfangled paper cartridges" and older weapons) can go off when dropped.

Baring some sort of catastrophic failure in-situ; which I do agree happen, or defective guns; the only modern firearm that I know of that will malfunction like that are WW2 nambus from later in the war. The Remington 700 thing that NBC did had artificially lowered trigger pressures; basically Remington couldn't replicate the results shown in that one without lowering the trigger pressure.

/ I do agree that a flintlock will malfunction if dropped; but, flintlocks aren't that user friendly to begin with

I'd argue, in that particular situation, that the owner was negligent.

I agree with this. Joe Biden advocated breaking the law. He should have been censured for encouraging people to take completely illegal actions by employing warning shots.

I would guess that WV's age of culpability is higher than that, but I don't know for sure.  There must be an age where it's assumed that  a person is aware of the difference between right and wrong or the consequences of their actions.  I've never heard of one as low as 5 years old, though.  I'm sure that in the Vice President's case there were mitigating circumstances, like "it was a joke that went wrong" or "the fellow said his face was impenetrable by buckshot and he egged me on to try it" or "9/11 !!!  9/11 !!!!" It's not for us mere citizens to question.

Wrong Vice President.

Biden actually advocated that gun owners should take illegal actions. He should have ben censured.

Pre- Series 80 1911s can fire if dropped on the hammer.  The Serious 80 guns have a firing block safety to prevent this.  I'll bet there are metric azzload of 1911s out there that were built prior to 1983.  Also, some older modern revolvers had the firing pin as part of the hammer.  I believe most, if not all, current production revolvers have a transfer bar that only activate when the trigger is pulled.  But again, there are a lot of these in circulation.  So AD is way rarer than ND, but not even close to impossible.

It is more akin to how Jeffrey Dahmer was a "typical homosexual".

HotWingConspiracy is an intellectual equal to anti-gay advocates who cite instances of criminal homosexuals as justification for banning consentual sodomy and same-sex marriage. He should be proud to stand with such individuals, because his arguments are identical in style to theirs.
