Actually if you would know all the facts , you would know it was the kid who got shot that was the one who loaded one bullet into the gun and joked about playing Russian roulette, and Rilee told him to put it down, then when he picked it up the gun went off. The old saying is the stupid shall be punished and well he was ! My daughter's room was less than 50 yards from where this happened, so I feel no pity except the bullet didn't kill both idiots !

What I have been saying all along- I have never seen a gun just pop up and shoot somebody- somebody has to pull the trigger. Parents are so happy to teach their children to have guns as a hobby- they dont even bother to teach them that guns are to use for protection- not to play with. Why would two men that I consider to be grown- be dumb enough to be sitting there playing Russian Roullete??? Could it be that parents dont emphasize to their child enough that guns can be lethal if used in the wrong way?? My dad had guns- but we also grew up knowing that guns were something to take seriously not play with!!!

Its almost scary, a gun will sit there and wait for some unsuspecting victim and jump up and boom, it takes two and people are always the loser.

A gun doesn't load itself, point it at a friend, and pull the trigger. An idiot does. Someone with some sense about firearms would of followed the #1 most important rule of firearms: Treat every firearm as if it is loaded and never point it at something one doesn't intend to shoot. So stop trolling on our 2A rights you clown.

Unless a person has a crystal ball you never know when someone will threaten your life, if the have the drop on you it doesn't matter if your carrying or not, walking around with a gun stuck in your belt like I saw some old fart one day in McDonalds is ridiculous.

one of the first rules my dad taught me about guns....always treat them as if they are loaded. Now the poor gun is being blamed because the best friend is a ding dong who appears to be too stupid to be in the same room with a gun.

Well said. Criminals and idiots are the problem not the gun. Drop the hammer for illegal possession of a firearm. Don't make that the first charge which gets dropped in the plea bargain. Whatever happened to the mandatory 5 years for an illegal weapon? Throw the charge out to get that plea deal.

Because there is no crystal ball is the very reason people carry guns. The Police are not there to protect us, in fact the courts have ruled that the Police do not have to protect us. The Police are a reactionary group they take part in the crime after it happens. So protecting our family and homes falls on us.

Seven months for taking a life. Doesn't seem right to me. Hopefully they took this clowns 2nd amendment rights away.
