    I doubt any alcohol was involved

    According to Harris County deputies, the 22-year-old man had gone upstairs with three other men and began showing off his gun. Deputies said the victim did not realize it was loaded and accidentally fired a round, hitting himself in the head.
    If I'm carrying a gun I DO know it's loaded and I don't play show and tell.

    Probably don't make a habit of pointing it toward your head either.

    BOTH of those things seem like pretty good ideas, Gene.

    Apparently, far too many others fail to give these things a second thought, and especially after a bullet transits through their brain.

    People are intent on proving Darwin right on a daily basis. I guess he never heard about treating every gun as though it is loaded.

    The mid-day TV (channel 2/this link) was still giving no details. A young kid. If it wasn't his pistol, why didn't owner clear chamber & show clear. SOP if I'm EVER handing ANY firearm to someone else. I know, I'm preaching the choir, & alcohol was probably involved. Just mad!

    Whoever handed him the loaded gun should do jail time. That is the best message to send to irresponsible gun owners.

    The news story said that he was showing off his gun. He knew (or should have known) his gun was loaded. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
