    Sad, that 12 year old will live out the rest of his life knowing he killed his friend. The dad will live out the rest of his life knowing he is partly responsible for the kids death.

    All because he didn't secure his weapon.

    A twelve year-old is capable of having had the proper gun training, and the father should have seen to that, or had the weapons locked up.
    Either way, the father is responsible.

    Gun training _AND_ the arms locked up.

    Culpable negligence as charged is exactly what dad did.
    Further child endangerment would be applicable in many states too.
