Gun accidentally fires, kills 19-year-old woman (Louisiana)
2theadvocate.com ^ | 10/21/05

Posted on 10/21/2005 5:42:52 AM PDT by Ellesu

Three roommates were comparing their handguns in the drive-through of a fast-food restaurant Tuesday when one of the pistols accidentally discharged, killing a woman in the front seat. Police identified the victim as Teaira Richard, 19, 10769 Alco St., Apt. 3.

Nicole Latrise Daniels, 20, who listed the same address as Richard, was booked into Parish Prison on one count of negligent homicide. Bond was set at $40,000.

The incident happened about 3:30 p.m. at the Popeyes at 10706 Florida St.

Daniels was in the back seat looking at a pistol one of the other two roommates had just bought, police spokesman Cpl. L'Jean McKneely said. Another girl handed Daniels a second gun, and as she was looking at both of them, one accidentally discharged.

Richard, who sat in the front passenger seat, was struck in the upper back, McKneely said.

The third roommate, whom McKneely refused to identify, drove Richard to Earl K. Long Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.

No, unfortunately, the gun didn't "accidentally discharge" all by itself.

It fired because it was caused to fire.

Unless it was a cheap POS that malfunctioned. But I have to believe that the idiot wondered just how hard she could pull the trigger before it went off.

The dead roommate drove? Got to love the quality of the writing.

She wanted to see if it would work even if she held it backwards.

Sorry. Spin it any way they wish, guns do not accidently fire, and words do have meaning.

End of story.

I would wager a significant sum that these women had no training, and were carrying the pistols illegally under Louisiana law. Democrats have been very successful in demonizing guns and removing gun education from the schools, especially in the inner city.

It's a good thing I keep my guns locked in a steel safe. They're always accidentally firing on their own. Last night they went through seven boxes of ammunition. It sounded like a war zone in my closet. I just hope they don't figure out how to go fully automatic.

Gun accidentally fires, kills 19-year-old woman (Louisiana)

Incorrect! You pathetic, hopolophobic headline writer...the gun didn't accidentally fire.Nicole Latrise Daniels negligently discharged a gun, killing the friend in the front seat.

Stupidity knows no bounds, apparently.

An unloaded gun ain't worth $#!t. Might as well throw rocks.

How does a gun "accidentally discharge"?

Kind of like a car "accidentally starting."

I love the way the gun is the "bad guy" in this story, not the mental midgets who were playing "gangsta rap queens" in a Popeye's drive-thru with loaded guns.

Definitely some Darwin Award nominees here.

and as she was looking at both of them, one accidentally discharged.

Let's fix that: When she pulled the trigger, the gun discharged.

Much better.

Of course, these people were idiots and not handling firearms in any kind of remotely sensible manner. That being said, it is my view that there is nothing more useless (or dangerous) than an UNLOADED gun.

I always get a kick out of the old Superman tv shows when the bad guy empties his pistol into Superman and then, when that fails, throws it at him. My guns stay loaded, but I keep them out of reach of children and stupid people. And I never put my finger on the trigger unless I intend to fire.

Daniels needed one firearm lesson: This here lever looking thing is called a trigger. You put your finger on it when, and only when, you want to destroy something.

What better way to pass time in the drive-through than to break out the blasters and test the trigger pull.

At most, "someone accidentally discharged the gun." Why are guns treated as though they had minds of their own?

If everyone did that, you wouldn't see stories about things like this.

Well said! That was the first thing that came to my mind when I read this. If they had just bought them, why were they already loaded?

Talk about stupid people.....you would think the criminal element in Metropolis would have learned that bullets bounce off Superman; yet every week, another group of mental midgets tried shooting him.....funny stuff.....

What did seem strange about Superman was that he would stand there and let the shooter empty the rounds in the gun without flinching but ducked when the gun was thrown at him.

And none of 'em thought to clear their 'effin' weapons before handin' 'em around?

Just think of it as evolution in action.

Weapons in the concealed carry mode are ALWAYS loaded.

Stupid or untrained people will have a round in the chamber, safety off, and then handle them so that they point at someone.

I have yet to see an "automobile accidentally cross the center line" because of a drunk driver. Well, this is just as stupid. I feel bad for these kids. I am sure their intent was not malicious, just mischevious. Horrible lesson to learn.

I wander of their fathers ever sat them down and taught them about gun safety and responsibility. I wander if their fathers ever took them to a range and demonstrated a level of trust to their young boys.
