    Unloaded or not, WHY would you put a gun to your head and pull the trigger? Other than the 3am and drunk part.

    Could be a product of the lacking in firearm safety in this countries educational system. Who's fault is that?

    you are trying to say that this idiot would have to have firearm safety in the public education system growing up to know not to put a gun to his head, whether he thought it ws loaded or not?

    I thought folks on this forum preached self responsibility and all that. I for one do not want more government involvement in anything.

    Anyway, may it is just possible ALCOHOL had something to do with this......

    Yeah, go ahead and blame alcohol for the actions of an obviously defective weapon. (hic)

    Indeed. He has obviously not attended the "Don't put a gun to your head and pull the trigger 101" class. Practice, practice, practice!
