    So you want more government laws and intervention concerning our 2nd amendment rights?
    Considering yourself to be defenseless is the first administrative step to becoming a victim.

    Natural selection process. This is why gun safety should be taught at every level of school.

    Your interpretation of my comment is baffling. My comment did not touch in 2A rights. The @ct ion I recommended has nothing to do with gun ownership. It has only to do with justice when personal negligence with a gun contributes to the death of another person. There is no need for any new laws to indict a person for negligence leading to the death of another person whether that negligence is but vehicle, gun, or other means. I did not call for new laws. I called for enforcement if laws that currently exist.

    Equating my comments with hostility toward 2 nears the absurd. Suggesting that prosecuting negligence in a wrongful death incident imperils 2A is unfounded and makes 2A advocates seem paranoid, which is just what the anti 2A folks call us.

    This has the earmarks of another "Florida man" story.

    Every firearm is loaded until I visually and physically confirm whether it is or not myself every time. Even if I'm "100% sure". It takes only a fraction of a second.

    Pretty sad.

    Much info not yet released, one suspects.

    I won't say anything insulting to the deceased, but maybe folks can learn a few important things here. Some basic safety rules were apparently not considered. Yes, always consider a piece loaded, never point it at anything not needing to be a target, not touching that trigger, and let's double check the piece for ammo before handing in any fashion.
