    Less then 1000 people a year die from accidental discharge of a firearm. But then you don't care about that fact do you? Hell there are 40 to 50 thousand a year killed in car accidents, lets ban private ownership of cars. FOR the children of course.

    This very likely was "just an unfortunate accident".

    There is no story here beyond the dead boy and some other poor sob who effed up and now has to cope with what happened.

    Fuck you: "An estimated 32,788 people were killed in traffic accidents in 2010, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. That represents a 25 percent decline since 2005, when there were 43,510 traffic fatalities"

    Traffic deaths are down you fucking moron because the Federal Government regulated safer cars, mandate the use of seat belts and required airbags.

    A seven you old is dead and you don't give a shit; that makes you a sociopathic asshole, IMHO.

    Jeez.

    Always assume a firearm is loaded.

    Don’t point a gun at anything you don’t wish to destroy.


    It’s incumbent upon every gun owner to follow every rule of safe gun handling religiously, to avoid a similar tragedy.

    Heard this on the radio. That story gave the impression that he purchased the gun at the store. Glad to have some clarification. Too bad for all involved.

    Step 1: Treat EVERY firearm as if were loaded.

    step 2: treat every gun owner as a potential mass murderer.

    Yea, right. It has nothing to do with technological improvements demanded by customers and supplied by competition in the auto industry.

    To you, anything positive is due to benevolent government requirements. Anything negative is do to not enough government regulations. So pathetic.

    Tell us, do you actually worship central planners or just jerk off to a pictures of dictators, Kings and Woodrow Wilson???
