    Another ND girl shot in head

    I seem to find it odd that it seems like a lot of Nd's end up with people getting shot in the head,it would seem that during an unintentional ND all the directions a bullet could go seem to mysteriously strike people in the head or chest,I can only assume that it would seem the gun holder is pointing or aiming the gun at the person that gets shot as he pulls the trigger,which IMHO would be reckless endangerment or involuntary manslaughter

    He missed a few of the rules, most every incident of this type, the rules were ignored! Read my "Tag Line".

    I agree several rules were broken but I tend to believe in many of these scenarios the shooter is usually fairly young and IMHO thinking the gun is unloaded points it at their friend/lover etc and pulls the trigger,since in most cases the victim is deceased and in some cases have trouble remembering exactly what happened the only witness is the guy that pulled the trigger

    Far too often I've seen people point guns at others and, when scolded, they whine that I'm a safety nazi and that "Come on, it's not loaded!"

    I've seen it in pictures and lots of young guys like to "play around" that way.

    You ever read of how many people have died playing the "trust game" in Iraq?? The idea that people think getting cheap thrills from pointing or looking down the barrel of a gun is okay is a mystery. We need to keep teaching kids that it's never okay to point a firearm at something they don't want to destroy.

    I've been labeled just that, on the handful of occasions I've gotten loud and obnoxious about hammering home this point, in a few instances when I and others have "merely" been swept by the muzzle. There's a reason that escapes such folks why the basic safety rules overlap each other.

    The idea that people think getting cheap thrills from pointing or looking down the barrel of a gun is okay is a mystery.
    Men may be from Mars, and women from Venus ... but folks who get jollies in this way are from Pluto, and that's a fact. Can't imagine doing it short of a field-stripped cleaning, myself. Glad I'm in good company.

    How're the pair of "Bumps" comin' along, there, Lima? Has the eldest started the g-proofing, yet?

    If the Anti's would just let us implement mandatory gun safety classes in schools starting at a young age, we might be able to fight some of this stupidity (I say MIGHT because there's no guarantee). But that'll never happen.
