A man once suspected of killing his twin brother, and was tried for the crime, resulting in a hung jury, and not retried, was killed, accidentally, with wounds somewhat similar to his brother's.
The gun was apparently his own, and he have it to his friend to look at. Friend, in jest, pulled the trigger, thinking the safety was engaged. Oooops!

Kind of fits the mantra I have always told my kids and other young people:
Don't do stupid things, don't go to stupid places and don't be around stupid people.
(for new terminology you could use "sketchy" for stupid)
Sometimes being ignorant of the current situation can be very costly.
Don"t let stupid be your skill set....
And Shepards we shall be, for Thee, my Lord, for Thee,
Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, So that our feet may swiftly carry out thy command,
And we shall flow a river forth to Thee, And teeming with souls shall it ever be,
Although not PC anymore, I really do think that firearms safety should be brought back into our schools.

Apparently the Owner (Firee) was an Illegal, so he probably didn't get to attend any of our fine schools growing up. But may have a few Generations enjoying a free education now.
And I can only imagine that the Dude on the receiving end (Shootee) probably didn't bother to check his weapon before handing it off to the Firee and falling victim to his own ignorance.
Can you imagine how many times these incidents are going to be replayed in the future when our children get older, because they are no longer expected and are frowned upon for even touching a handgun. Much less have any training in the Art of Safe Firearm Handling.
Shootee? Maybe that should be Deceasedee!
I bought my 3 years old Grandson a Cricket 22 single shot rifle the other day to give to him when he gets older. In case they outlaw all firearm training by the time he gets old enough to have some.
What have you done to prepare for the end of civilization as we know it?
