Another Darwin award recipient.

First time the gun didn't fire, so he pulled the trigger again.

How horrible for his family. You spend all those years ensuring he doesn't play with fire, play in the street, run with scissors (no offense to RunsWithScissors). You get him through childhood illnesses, adolescence, learning to drive, 12+ years of education. You buy him braces, sports gear, music lessons, his first car. All that money in groceries! All the outgrown clothing. And you'd gladly do it threefold to only have him back.

And imagine the embarrassment. How do you tell others? It is one thing to have something like a hunting accident or accident while cleaning, this is just plain insane.

Police investigating? No need for that. Cause of death: stupidity. Glad he didn't have a chance to breed and cause further harm to the world.

He pulled the trigger a second time? Did anyone explain the rules to the idiot?

BTW, did anyone else see an ad on that page for the new guns at the Shot Show?

Eighteen year olds never think anything bad is actually going to happen to them. They're "invincible" at that age. What a horrible intro to Reality. I feel very bad for his family.
