I recall a classic Fark thread about some guy masturbating in a public library, and some Farker suggested he would use that excuse ("I was just cleaning it and it went off unexpectedly")
 
2021-04-15 6:32:33 PM  
Why was he not arrested immediately for reckless endangerment, child endangerment, and negligent homicide?

Oh, right, Florida

Thanks every asshole whose hobbies are Guns. You continue to fark up our society.

It's just wonderful.
 
2021-04-15 6:50:11 PM  
Aren't you supposed to unload the gun before cleaning it?  Oh, right.  Idiots.
 
2021-04-15 6:50:15 PM  
I hate this f*cking country.  Every firearm is loaded. Period.  He murdered that woman.
F*cking Florida. F*cking USA.

#1 We live in a country where fire-arm deaths are a matter of routine.

#2 We live in a country where we are dependent on strangers to fund a funeral.

Well, she should have armed herself.
 
2021-04-15 6:51:04 PM  
It was an accident so no harm no foul right, he gets to keep it?

The folks in the Florida trailer park don't clean'm - guns or rifles.  They are known to play with them though.

Why bother.  It's easier to unload it AS you clean it.

Is the gun alright? Asking for the gun-humpers.
 
2021-04-15 6:54:42 PM  
I think it's time to ban Americans.
 
2021-04-15 6:54:43 PM  
At this point, no formal criminal charges have been filed in connection to Edelen's death.

Well, I mean, if he grew up there what chance did he really have at not being a dumbass?

That raises the issue that it was intentional and the guy is lying. Let's not go there.

Florida BTW was the first state that the NRA got their hands on to pass a law banning doctors from discussing guns with patients. They actually justified this by suggesting that gun owners feelings are hurt when, for instance, a pediatrician mentions that statistically, a doctor is more likely to sign a death certificate for the accidentally shot child of a gun owner than for an intruder being put down by a good guy with gun. God forbid they try to give you a brochure about basic guns safety and storage for parents who don't want to give up having a gun in the house.

The stupid trash also claimed that doctors asking about gun ownership amounted to discrimination against ammosexuals.
 
2021-04-15 6:59:56 PM  
Some day a judge will rule that the term "accident" may never again be used in court concerning firearm death or injury.
 
2021-04-15 7:00:18 PM  
After the gun went off the neighbor was probably all like, "Dammit, now I have to clean it again!"
 
2021-04-15 7:00:31 PM  
Why all the sadness? Now she's in heaven guzzling beer with Jesus while popping off rounds at the automatic weapon range celebrating her freedom!

cleaning a gun = farking around with a gun like it's a toy

No, he was standing his ground in his own home which is legal under Florida law.  Lucky he survived too, that woman minding her own business inside her own home was a clear and present immediate danger to him.

/That neighbor might want to move, he may be fairly unpopular in the area for quite some time...

1. Don't keep a loaded firearm
2. If you have to disregard #1 for a security firearm, clear the weapon before moving it.
3. if a loaded firearm even hits the mat, you've failed as a gun owner.

It would have been polite of her, yes.

Require gun owners to carry liability insurance?

Technically, he did unload it.

All the regulars aren't here yet because the headline doesn't give an indication as to what this is about.

Nobody has ever accidentally fired a gun while cleaning it. That is never not a lie.

It fires because someone loads it and pulls the trigger every time. How negligent vs intentional that act was may vary.

Russ1642: cleaning a gun = farking around with a gun like it's a toy


In American culture today, a gun is a toy.
It's a common item to be casually handles and treated with negligence and contempt.
The concept of the gun as a dangerous tool has been dismissed as "unmanly" and "liberal", by American gun culture.
Guns are left lying around, or handed to children or idiots to play with, because toys is all they are in the idiot wad mind. Look at the advertisements that are used to market fauxault weapons - they are like old Mattel ads to sell toy guns to little boys.

Billy Liar: Require gun owners to carry liability insurance?


That, and limit gun owners to women. That'll be an overnight drop in gun crime.
 
2021-04-15 7:13:01 PM  
More guns, more death.

Our country is floating on a vast sea of weapons designed to kill other humans. We have several TIMES the number of guns per capita then places enduring actual warfare do.

It's a level of weaponry that's toxic for our society and culture. He should be charged and held accountable for her death, that's what manslaughter charges are for - but the application of manslaughter charges in negligent homicides is spotty to say the least. It should be a rock-solid expectation that if you are negligent or careless in any way and another person ends up shot because of it that your ass is going to suffer serious consequences.

And also, we need fewer farking guns laying around farking everywhere. We need to stop glorifying them.

Unfortunately, the judge will be a Trump appointee so the new term will be "unintentional freedoming."

Billy Liar: Require gun owners to carry liability insurance?


You mean like folks are required to carry for cars? If so, stop making sense. The only thing that makes sense for America is relatively unfettered access guns because some paranoid slave owners in the 18th Century think they needed them to keep the government blacks at bay.

What a stupid farking country...but then again, I'm from Canada. Ask our indigenous folks how well we've done by them...

Cynical today. Really, really cynical.

What part of "shall not be infringed" do you liberals not understand?!?!?

They need to send him to prison. I know fark all about firearms, but it goes: eject the mag, clear the chamber, rack & lock the slide/bolt, inspect the chamber & barrel visually, THEN dry-fire downward.

This dude (IF he was cleaning it) put a loaded mag back in & let the bolt catch a round & fired thinking the chamber was empty. If he knew enough they have to be cleaned, he should've known how they work.

But most likely he was playing around with a brand-new stimmy check toy while high on meth.
 
2021-04-15 7:18:12 PM  
I don't know about you, but I always make sure there's at least 1 chambered round when I clean my gun. After all, firing it is an integral part of the cleaning process, pushes the dirt out faster than a brush.

/said no responsible firearms owner ever
 
2021-04-15 7:18:14 PM  
Maybe he meant to clean his tazer?
