Darwinian Law - get drunk on New Years and start firing a gun to celebrate? someone is bound to get killed somehow.

Any idiot who mixes guns and alcohol needs a liftime ban on owning guns.

He did. Though it was a short lifetime.

What a horrible accident. I have been a gun collector and shooter most of my life. However, the 'drunk' part I have not taken part in. This story makes me wonder whether or not this individual has ever taken a gun safety class. This is a prime example of why all guns should require a permit, including long guns. Being from the hills myself, I have seen a number of 'stupid' and unfortunate decisions made by people concerning their 2nd Ammendment rights. I wonder if there was something either stuck inside the barrel, or if the barrel was cracked? Also, putting the wrong type of ammunition into any gun can have devastating consequences. My thoughts and prayers go out to this mans family and friends. Hopefully, despite the heart breaking nature of this situation, it will lend to the preservation of someone else's life - as in an example of what not to do.
