    Man cleaning gun NDs through hand, kills wife

    Brunswick County woman accidentally shot, killed | WWAY NewsChannel 3 | Wilmington NC News

    They say it appears a man was cleaning his gun when it went off. A relative says the man was emptying the gun when it fired. Investigators say the bullet hit the man in the hand before hitting Samantha Reynolds, 20, in the abdomen. Reynolds later died at the hospital.

    How sad!

    Rule #1 All guns are always loaded.
    Rule #2 Don't let the muzzle of the gun cross anything you don't intend to shoot. (refer to Rule #1 for the reason).

    I don't understand. He is emptying the gun,a round goes through his hand and into another person? Something sounds strange.
    Pain is the best teacher,but nobody wants to go to his class.


    When the past smothers the present, there is only desperation. When the future absorbs the present, life stands still. In either case a decision must be made because you only live now and you are only what you are now.

    Hmmm, has room to seem a tad bit fishy...

    Perhaps he realized his error and tried to CATCH the bullet.

    Approx. 25 cents, much cheaper than a divorce?

    Was the loaded gun being cleaned or unloaded? Guns don't normally go bang accidentally.

    Even with Glock type pistols that require that the striker system be fired before field stripping ,how you get your hand in front of the muzzle just eludes me.Definitely negligent discharge and could very well be charged with involuntary manslaughter since the muzzle of the gun had to of been pointed at her

    Incidents like this are why I feel signs should have force of law. People might not want guns in there shop and this is why. It might harm someone else and they should be allowed to do what they feel in order to proven tragedy like this.

    I think "I was just cleaning the weapon" is akin to claims such as; "I didn't realize I was speeding" and "I swear I thought she was eighteen."
