Treat every gun as a loaded weapon. My son told me that when he was in kindergarten.

how stupid/drunk do you have to be to pull the trigger on a gun loaded or unloaded. Dumb as a bag of hammers, I think.

I'm sorry, but this is plain funny! The moron let some bimbo play with his gangster gunner, and he got shot right in the face.
I'm thinking he wanted to get screwed by her, but I doubt this was what he had in mind.
1 gun and 2 gangsters that won't be on the streets! LMAO I'm still laughing! Too damn funny.

Iíd say a fair amount of people were not reared around firearms & prob donít grasp the capacity. Check the what? Whatís a chamber?
Why was HIS loaded firearm in her hands? Unfortunately sheís about to learn more than she ever wanted to know about guns. Not to be disrespectful & I donít know the details, but he sounds very much at fault.

i have a personal connection to someone involved in this case and i very strongly believe that she needs to face the music. why would you ever put your fingerprints on a weapon you know nothing about, and tho someone says it's not loaded why would you point it at someone and fire? how incredibly stupid some kids can be. the worst part to me is if it was an accident why did you lie and try to say he committed suicide, then hide from the cops for 2 weeks? this person was your friend pay the piper b****!!!

Why does every blog have to be infected with at least one race baiting troll?

Whatever happened to the anguished pleas for compassion for the deceased, or do politically correct race baiters reserve those claims for Mexicans and blacks exclusively?

Yeah- I think the guy was more at fault than the girl. First rule is never give up your weapon ! She probably knows nothing about weapons and was handed one with no training. She will beat this- at least serve no time- with a decent lawyer representing her.

And that would be why they are charging her with manslaughter instead of murder, manslaughter is the "reckless" killing of an individual. Playing with a handgun and putting ones finger on the trigger (even thinking the gun isn't loaded) is a reckless act, not deliberate...
As others have stated treat every weapon as if it is always loaded, and keep your finger off the trigger until you are READY to fire the weapon... Unfortunately being naive here is not a defense, she unintentionally shot someone, that is manslaughter.

Stupidity comes in all colors.

Speaking of stupidity, why would you drag the race card into something this terrible?

And, this is the reason CCW holders must get a background check, and go through handgun and safety training.
