A moron from Edmonton?

I'm sorry, at this time it's the only place I can think of with a resident moron.

Better question: Why didn't he remove the bullets prior to cleaning the gun?

Actually this retort would imply the moron is from Middle Island New York.
Your post is off topic, and childish. But then again that is all you got.
Go back to the school yard and play with the rest of your bullies.

How does one actually bully or abuse a worn out Canadian catcher's mitt?

Isn't the first rule if YOU are handling a gun to always check the chamber??? That is what I was taught.

I would think so. Obvious this guy parents were remiss in the teachings of many things, number one common sense.
I hope they charge him with manslaughter and a few other things, Living with it is not enough punishment for stupidity such as this.
It also looks like some posters think it is ok this tragedy by their off topic posts, and equal stupidity, remarks and trolling. I would say their upbringing was remiss as well. Using a topic such as this to troll and continue with high school bullshit is sad, but also a measurement of their mentality level. Sad!
Good thing someone appointed you Gawd.

I agree. Someone has to do it. By the way..it is GOD to you!
Wrong. It's Gawd. As an atheist, even I would associate the word God with such a raving lunatic.

It is sad the loss this family will suffer all the days of their lives. Such a beautiful child too.
The USA needs gun control, and that in no way takes away your constitutional rights to bear arms, just means that now with that right, SOME, will have to educate themselves on use, and use of common sense.
When you can name at least one country whose laws prevent accidents, you'd have appoint. Might help if you weren't high on crack as well.

The post was about my ex and how he prefers to go away for the winter rather than get to know a dying grandson, boozing seems to be more important. But I guess that is something you can relate to. I am not as low as you

Not true. I have seen you lower.

Now sleep in the bed you made.

I tried to shoot Harley once, but as soon as the bullet came out of the barrel and got a good look at her, it hightailed it back in the gun.
