    She's an idiot.

    What's the irony of it?

    I guess this is some thinly veiled attempt by you to say we should curtail gun rights in America?

    Ok, fine, the next time someone dies in a car crash due to texting, I would love to hear your argument for banning mobile phones.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    I think the irony is fairly obvious. I am pro 2nd amendment and have two guns in my home. I don't have an issue with responsible gun ownership. But if you spend your time blabbity blabbing about how much you love guns and bragging - if the stories are true - about what a crack shot your (ahem) 4-year-old is, and that same 4-year-old pops a cap in your back with your unsecured weapon, you have been hit not only by a bullet but also by the irony train.

    The situation is tragically ironic. Glad she and kid are okay. Hope his hearing is intact.

    I once had a bullet from a 9mm, fire within inches of my head. A friend was doing something with it. It went off in my apartment. He was on the couch and I was playing darts. BOOM!

    It's a miracle that no one was hurt, including anybody else in adjacent apartments.

    A former co-worker had a 12 gage go off right next to him and shot right past his face thru the roof. Alcohol involved. Jackasses. Thankfully nobody hurt.

    Yep. Alcohol and guns. A great combination. Even better than booze and cars...
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    My dad was hunting pheasant at a club and one of his friends dropped his shotgun and it went off point blank in the guys belly. No alcohol. Gun just slipped, hit the ground and went into his gut. Hair trigger.

    Died a few hours later.

    Guns can kill even when you are careful.

    Oh the irony. She should have aborted her baby before he could get to 4 years old and shoot her.

    See how stupid this is?

    While we're confessing. I know a guy who shot himself in the leg while trying to load his rifle. He was driving at the time.

    Default Pro-gun Poster Girl Is Shot In The Back By Her Four-Year-Old Son

    Oh I gotta know more about that. What kind of justification does one offer for loading while driving? "I was afraid the birds/deer/whatever would be spooked by the sound of me loading up, not by the sound of my vehicle arriving."

    I believe the root cause of most gun "accidents" boil down to a choice somebody made. Be it handling firearms while intoxicated, leaving one in the seat next to your kid, loading while driving, etc. Even the hair trigger shot in the stomach. Tragic as it may be, odds are that trigger was modified to be that light. Most all of those situations (the hair trigger being the possible exception) were choices that unfortunately add to the overall narrative that gun owners are irresponsible idiots when in fact most of us aren't.

    Firing pins on shotguns can activate without the trigger being pulled. The safety only restricts the trigger, not the firing pin. I've heard it happening. All it takes is a good jolt. Never put a shotgun round in the chamber until you're ready to fire. Carry the thing empty.
