BalugaJoe: Why does he have a bullet in the chamber with the safety off?

1. Not all firearms have a manual safety.

2. A bullet in the chamber won't fire just because the safety is off, if there is one.

3. He pulled the trigger, so it fired.

4. If he didn't pull the trigger, he wouldn't have hurt himself.

Some people lack the training, the mental capabilities, the trigger finger control, to not stick their finger in the trigger guard when "stroking" their firearm while waiting for their kid at school. He was one of those guys.

BumpInTheNight: At this point its no more shocking that this happens then meetings doctors who smoke, IT professionals who choose weak passwords or bartenders who drink.  People sometimes do things that they should ironically know better then anyone is harmful to them self, meh.

But you see, none of those things have nearly as much potential for collateral damage as these nitwits do, which why there should be a whole lot fewer people wandering around with loaded guns to make this shiat possible.
